Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: You Will Need
you will need: one computer shell with hole for DVD drive either top or bottom that can easily fit a 375ml can for best proformance,one big piece of thick cardboard,one ramp(optional), a pair of scissors, string(optional). if you want your drinks cold you will also need: a powerful fan(approx 9 volts), battery pack, ice pack, plastic sandwitch bag, 2 way switch, insulation(wool works well).
Step 2: Preperation
FIRSTLY, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANKS TO MY COUSIN LEE FOR HELPING ME GET IDEAS FOR THIS. Turn tower upside down if DVD drive space is up top.
Step 3: The Ramp
insert the ramp at the back(if you have one)
Step 4: The Cardboard Soda Ramp
with the scissors, create two holes in the cardboard, for string to go through, if you have any.
Step 5: Placing the Ramp
place the ramp inside the shell
Step 6: The String
thread the string through the holes in the cardboard and through the tower, if you have any.
Step 7: Finishing
the shell of your old computer is now a drink dispenser. pull the drink through the DVD drive hole to obtain drink. enjoy! If you want a cooling interface, go to next step
Step 8: The Cooling Interface
note:i am coming up with a efficient cooling interface so hold tight. wire the battery pack to the fan through the switch. this creates a switch to turn the fan on/off. place the switch in an easy to reach place(preferably the floppy drive if you have one). freeze the ice pack and place in the sandwitch bag(helps to stop rusting of the dispenser). this blows cold air at the drinks. with insulation
