Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
You will need.
-One large Rubber band.
-One Pen, note: the pen should be one of the "cheaper" kinds that have the inside cartridge, a pull on, pull off cap.... My recomendations are either a Bic or "Just Basics".
-Adhesive Tape. My recomendations are "Nashua Tape" its sort of grayish.
Step 2: Preparing the Pen.
Normally you can just take the cap off and write, but we want to get that hollow interior. Most pens carry a small cap at the rear, and you can sort of yank that off and the pen comes out.
Now whats left is the tip. Just cut that off.
Step 3: Applying the Band.
You want to get the large rubber band and cut about a quarter from it. You want to leave it so that the center is hitting the back of the pen, and both sides are around 1 thumbs width from the far tip. Holding bothsides together, you want to then wrap it tightly in tape, around 3 times over.
Step 4: Fire Away.
Damn this thing is powerful. so watch what you do.
