    While I prefer a serious looking reef, I really think my students would love a gimmicky shape of encrusting coral that our Cyphastrea meteor shower (origin: @wpeterson ) can grow over. Inspiration:

    If you really want to be creative, get moldable plastic and let the kids make their own shapes. Moldable plastic is the stuff brs and Amazon sells where you heat little beads and can reuse or remold by reheating.

    JesterSix has been making a number of items, including Star Wars these. Perhaps a Darth Vader head?
