Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Sort Out the Cable
Get out your U.S.B. cord and find the end with the plug that would go into to device. (no the computer)
Step 2: Cut the Wire
Cut off the plug that goes into the device and if there is a tube thing cut that off too.
Step 3: Strip the Wire
Strip 2cm off the outer coating.
Step 4: Find Positive and Negative
You might need to dig through some foil and uncover wire but you should find a few multi-colored wires. Use your multimeter to find the positive and negative wires.
Step 5: Tape, My Favorite Thing!
Tape down the wires that are not needed.
Step 6: Wire It Up
Connect the fan to the cord.
Step 7: Build a Base!
You can build a base out of Popsicle sticks, thick wire or any thing that can support the fan!
Step 8: YOUR DONE!
Now when you are on instructables and scorching hot you can plug in your mini fan and cool off!
