We love the idea of the Glowing Plant Project, which will teach you about synthetic biology by allowing you to do some. The group has a Kickstarter campaign that, if successful, will allow anybody to grow a glowing plant from jellyfish DNA and a mustard flower.
What's amazing is all the technology that already exists to do this. We have "gene printers" that can literally print out DNA, and a "gene gun" to shoot modified DNA right into the cells of the plant. The result? A mustard plant that glows green, just like a jellyfish. The jellyfish's green fluorescent proteins are used all the time in genomics, and are harmless. There have already been genetically engineered glowing green bunnies, kittens, and more.
