          This looks very good!

          A tip - keep in mind that you're publishing this live to a worldwide audience of Instructables readers with varied backgrounds. I'd recommend a little more background in your introduction as to what this is, and who it would be useful for. Using a photo of the literal thing you've made for your main/cover photo is always very helpful too. Good work, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's fantastic to see this kind of educator-focused content. Keep it up! : )
