How to make plant cell model – BioMedical Art

How do you make a plant cell model for a school assignment, a science fair, or just for fun? Pakistan-based YouTuber and science crafter Khadija Fazal Karim demonstrates how to create a plant cell model using styrofoam, glue, tissue, and paint. Her channel, BioMedical Art, specializes in tutorials that document how she handmakes these biology-focused education tools.

If you don’t have styrofoam to repurpose or if you want to avoid creating small particles of petroleum-based plastic waste, use construction paper, clay, paper mache, or food to make this project.
