How might I build a LEGO model of a digestive system? I think it could be a good way of helping my son with a science project.

Either building plans, instructions, or any help with getting started would be appreciated.

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Unfortunately, this may be a question which we will have a hard time to answer. However, you may be interested to know that Nathan Sawaya, LEGO Certified Professional, once made a heart model for an hospital. I suppose contacting an LCP for this might be overkill, but it might inspire your kid - although it probably doesn't need to be so accurate for a school project. – Joubarc Feb 12 '14 at 20:40

I would keep it very simple with just building the organs with regular bricks. Color code each organ. I have never seen anyone do this with LEGO bricks so can't link to a picture, however I can imagine than it could be done easily. Basically you would end up with a pipe-system. ;)
