Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
necessary materials include:
-usb drive (obviously)
-knife,drill,pliers anything necessary to disembowel the capacitor
-hot glue (my favorite!)
-flat head screwdriver
make sure your usb itself is smaller than the capacitor
Step 2: Prep
if it is a bracelet all thats needed is to slip a screwdriver around the edges of the usb and slip it out if it is a regular plastic case pop it apart with a knife or any means necessary
set that aside. than take a small flat head screwdriver and slip it along the outside ring of the capacitor and pry it off revealing the guts of the capacitor you will need to remove most of the guts in order to fit the flash drive in.
Step 3: Finishing
finishing up put hot glue into what's left of the capacitor fill it 3/4 up with hot glue wait for the hot glue to cool a little so as it doesn't cook the flash drive.
last thing to do is take rubber cap that used to be on the bottom of the capacitor cut a rectangular hole in it and fit it around the usb and lever it back into place.
and there you have it folks a usb capacitor.
