Don't recall saying scientifically accurate. Woot didn't say hard science. They said
"This week, show us your take on the Scientific Method. Maybe you'll attest to the value of repeatable results, show us an experiment in motion" (cut because the rest was a joke).
And you mention some other designs, but for example, the caterpillar is testing a form of Bernoulli's principle (from fluid dynamics) which allows flight. As for the smiling beakers, I want them gone too, so that's not inconsistent. The caterpillar, though, is actually good scientific method.
Ramy slapped DNA on a shirt (and in fact has submitted this before, and wasn't really on topic then either). No experimentation, no results, no theory, no nothing, just pretty DNA.
If this were a biology derby or just "science" I might even be inclined to vote for it. But my liking a shirt doesn't make a shirt within the rules, and neither does yours.
