A kidney is an important part of our urinary system. Healthy kidneys clean up around half a cup of blood every minute. Kidneys help our body to remove excreta and toxic fluids from our body. It also removes the acid produced by the cells. Representing the working of the kidney through a model is an exciting task and also easy to make. You can prepare it with readily available tools and materials. So let’s start making your Kidney working model for a science project.
- Glue gun
- Chart paper
- Thin Cardboard
- Colored Paper
- Double-sided tape
- Medical tubes
Steps To Make A Kidney Working Model For Science Project
Step 1: Take the cardboard and wrap it with your favourite colour chart paper.
Step 2: Prepare the parts of the kidney with the help of the cardboard sheet and origami paper.
Step 3: Now, glue everything to the cardboard, as shown below.
Step 4: Now, cut out the non-essential piece as shown below.
Step 5: Now, make a cardboard stand as explained below in the picture.
Step 6: Now, cut out the bottle from the top and the bottom.
Step 7: Make two holes in the cap.
Step 8: Insert two medical tubes in the respective holes and glue them to the cap.
Step 9: Now prepare the label for each part.
Step 10: Make the six holes at different places. Make one hole above the kidney and one hole below it. And make one hole beside the urethra. Do the same for the opposite side. Now insert the pipes in the respective holes. Look at the picture for reference.
Step 11: Glue the pipe to the cardboard sheet.
Step 12: Put the prepared model over the stand and the bottom of the bottle under it.
And you have a working kidney model ready.
- Try to prepare the parts beforehand.
- Stick everything properly.
Points to remember
Handle the tools safely.
