I sketched out a blueprint for my project and it looks something like this.
I really like the carved styrofoam idea because letting the project suspend in water will give it the lifelike effect of moving inside the cell.
Notice the shoe lace has 4 alternating colors how convenient.
In addition I was planning to add some sort of metal coat to the outside of the ribosome. Since the ribosome is a protein making “factory”, I felt making it look like metal would add a factory feel to the project. Something like wrapping it in aluminum or pennies (although I don’t know if it will sink if it gets too heavy from the pennies:
Anyways, hopefully everything works out well. Sorry I can’t make it to class on Monday because I think I have an ear infection that I need to get checked out.
