This one is for the kids, of whatever age! Whilst browsing the internet a few days back I came across this web-site that sells LEGO models of various satellites including a GPSIIF model.
Whilst they sell kits with all the necessary bricks, they have also made available the build guide so, if you have a large collection of LEGO bricks, you might just have the parts you need already.
The end result is a faithful scale model of the GPSIIF variant, complete with the antennas, solar panels and a stand.
If you fancy having a go, click the source link below to visit the site and download the build documentation. And if you do have a go, don't forget to post your build in the forum.

Problem is that it might be a prohibitive cost to get it into orbit
