This is a very cheap laptop holder I decided to build after I get some performance problem with my Laptop due to overheat. On that picture I use a 1.5 volt DC to 12 DC adaptor. So with that one I can choose different speed and at the same time it can be noiseless by change the speed. Or you can use an USB adaptor if your fan support it and if it's use less than .500 Amp

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Need
1- Cheap cabinet shelf = 5$ (from bargainshop)
2- PC Fan (bigger is better)
3- AC-DC adaptor = 5 $ or
4- USB cable = 1 $ (dollar store)
Step 2: Bend, Pli and Curve It ...
I didn't show you every step of the bend process , anyways every laptop are different.
- But first bend 2 legs at 90 degrees at half way. Than cut the 2 others legs and curve all the otherside at 180 degrees . Than cut the parts you don't want to keep. Don't forget to keep the small cap at the end of each legs to put it back after you cut it.
Step 3: The Fan With AC DC Adaptor
If you use the AC DC adaptor , just solder the red wire with the positive and the black with the negative. Find where your laptop overheat and use tie wrap to hold it in place. Be sure you blow the air on your Laptop.
Step 4: The Fan With an USB Cable
It's the same thing for the USB cable , keep the red and black wire and cut all the others one.
Now solder the red with the red and the black with the black.
Step 5: Finished
With my laptop on it
