We created a hands-on, three-dimension model of our system so that people could have a more intuitive understanding of our project. To achieve this, the Yeast and the E. Coli have the same relative sizes to each other as they have in reality. In addition, they are similar to shape as reality: the E. Coli is rod-shaped with flagella and the Yeast cell is budding so it is egg shaped. We made the E. Coli have pegs and the Yeast have holes that can fit inside of eachother and the users can play with them.

\frac We used a Solid Edge to design the parts and a 3D printer to make them courtesy of the Rose-Hulman Facilities department. A challenge we encountered was that the flagella often would break off.
