I had so much fun with this. This is for a physiology group project where we were to construct a model of a cell using whatever we wanted, excluding Jell-O. My boyfriend came up with the awesome idea of modeling it after sushi & he came over today & we finished it in about an hour or so.


    Here's a list of what's what:
  • seaweed - cell membrane
  • rice - cytoplasm
  • boiled egg white - nuclear membrane
  • pasteurized cheese - chromatin
  • marble - nucleolus
  • turkey slices - endoplasmic reticulum
  • spam - Golgi bodies
  • kidney beans - mitochondria
  • peas - lysosomes
  • baby carrot - vacuole
  • grated cheese - microtubules
  • sesame seeds - ribosomes

It's as big as the inside of a paper plate. We're so pleased with it, & we know it'll definitely stand out. Everyone else was using styrofoam balls & clay to make theirs in class while our group chilled in the back & slept. B]

The only thing that sucks is that it won't last, & it took up a lot of rice. :[

Thanks for looking!

Wow, that's ingenious! Simply awesome! =D I'm sure your group aced the project. Did you get to sample it?
It does look like a lot of rice. Looks like two cups (uncooked) worth. It's great that rice is inexpensive though! =)

That is amazing! I'm in neuroscience/microbiology and am a huuuge geek and its so perfect! It looks quite tasty too. It's such a good idea, you'll have to make another one if you have some sort of biology-themed party (geeks have the coolest parties) I wish I would get a project like that, it'd be so much more fun than the normal assignments given.  Smiley

green fruit rollups
rice crispie
(recipe for rice crispie treats)
red licorice

*Spread rice crispie treat over roll ups and place licorice in middle, rollup . Whala!! you have sushi.

Holy awesome batman, that is the coolest model of the cell I've ever seen. I just had a test on cell organelles and cell membranes... (Holler if you love phospholipid bilayers!)

That's brilliant!  I've seen so many jello, clay, and candy models like that but never something like this.  It looks sooo good to eat too : D

I so love Rachel Ray on abc in the mornings on the weekdays. She is totally different than she is on the food channel. That is where I got the sushi idea.

Too freaking cool. We did the jello one, since it was allowed and easy.

I LOVE the idea of turkey as ER... WAY cool!

Oh my gosh!  That's awesome!  I thought my 9th grade biology class had good ones -- computer parts (me) and an iced cookie cake (my friend, which meant we all got to chow down at lunch) -- but this totally trumps those.  Great job!

That's awesome, did you eat it when you were done?

I don't get what is it with biology teachers making their students make cells out of random materials. I did this twice in middle and high school-- one amusement park cell and one cookie cell.

I clicked this rocks  cause its AMAZING! We're learning about cells right now @ my school-and at my old school, omeone made a molecule out of gumballs but little kids kept eating them before he got 2 class. anyway, I heart <3 luv your idea.

Wow!  I've been thinking of learning to make sushi.  I'm not sure I'll make a sushi-replica of a cell, but the idea is VERY cool and creative.  Did it taste good?
