Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials / Things Needed
Tools needed: nutcracker, hot glue gun (any glue will do but I prefer hot glue) and a penknife/multi tool (not pictured)
Things needed: walnut and a USB.
Step 2: Getting the USB Prepared
Well, to prepare the USB you have to take out the electronics and leave the casing. This differs with different USB sticks. For me I had to pull off the little end cap (first picture) and the electronics come out.
Step 3: Preparing the Walnut
In the first picture it shows me weakening the walnut, I didn't picture me opening it up. To open it run a knife through the side until it separates, if pieces break of, keep them it will be use full later. To make a hole for the USB do what I did, you don't have to use a knife a screw driver will be fine.
Step 4: Putting the USB Into the Walnut and Gluing It Together
This is the final step. Put the USB into the walnut and find a position for it so that it closes properly and the connecter thing sticks out. When it's all fine glue it together. Remember the small piece(s) left over you can use it to patch up
Step 5: All Done
All finished. If you made it please leave a comment. Please vote for the USB walnut in the USB competition. Thanks for reading.
