Presentation on a 'How-To' Subject.

How excited I was, when my Public Speaking teacher handed out a prompt for our next presentation:

"You must present to the class, a toutorial on how to make or do something"



I was ecstatic, I thought this would be cake, its in the bag!
But, here I am, struggling to find something to do, I have access to some of the best projects ever, but I can't just narrow it down to one!
It must be made/presented in 7-10 minutes, to 30 seniors in high school.
Would you mind suggesting something I can make, and demonstrate to my Public Speaking class?

My thoughts were:

www.instructables.com/id/Rubber-band-Powered-Butterfly/

www.instructables.com/id/Pocket-Graffiti-Pen/


Any more ideas?

And...?

I think Kiteman's climbing cardboard gorilla would be a good one. You could even put together the cardbaord pieces in front of them.

He'd need to cheat with the gluing, maybe double-sided sticky tape?

Here's a thought - why not talk about the Instructable process?

You can talk them through how to explain to somebody else how to do something.

(I wouldn't do the butterfly - it takes too much tweaking to fit reliably into 7-10 minutes.  If you want one of mine, try these:

Oooh, I am liking the party popper one!
<starts legal defense fund for bumpus who gets stopped at the school doors by the bomb sniffing dogs for bringing in an explosive device with intent of detonating said explosive materials and causes lockdown of the school, county, ,muster of national guard and scrambling of assault helicopters and fighter jets...>

Bumpus-boy,  bring in a foldable swiss-army knife-fork-spoon instead to demonstrate...and check your school for zero-tolerance policies...
If he's sensible, he'll run his plan past his teacher before the day.
Oh, my god...

That's one for Randy Cassingham to sink his teeth into!

(Doesn't he look like Kelsey?)
