Some good analogies for Ribosomes are the following:

  • a machine that does jigsaw puzzles, placing pieces where they fit to build a larger unit.
  • a restaurant because it makes food
  • a factory because they make and produce things

Ribosomes are organelles not bound by membranes, intracellular structures that synthesize (reproduce or replicate) protein chains according to a coded sequence read from messenger RNA (mRNA).
