Thank you. Admittedly I haven't had the opportunity to try this in a classroom yet - but yes, children being children will probably revel in trying to get the Red Zone to light up, I was conscious of this. That's one of the reasons why the counter displays are a good addition because they could represent how many seconds/mins they lose from break or golden time.

It's been interesting to hear everyone's suggestions for improvements, I think the idea of this build has gotten people's creative juices flowing, which has been great to hear.I'd love to see other incarnations of this idea.
Yes, I did think of something similar, but I had MDF to hand and, because it's made of small fibres, it's easy to chisel (comes away just like thick cardboard).Your solution would be great for a varnished wood finish.
In the video I just attached it using 2 small strips of double-sided tape (the foam type - not sure whether it has a proper name?), attached just to the top and bottom parts of the plastic cover underneath - it stuck very well, so well that I struggled to pull it off.
Yes, here in the U.K. up = off and down = on.
Like this (image attached) - but will vary based on the spacings and the switch type etc.
I think you can buy them for the US switches (https://www.amazon.com/Frankenstein-Style-Switch-Plate-Cover/dp/B01GOH9UZS) - these aren't the same as mine, hence why I made one.
Yes, that would be a nice touch.
But doesn't the existing plastic covering act as that barrier anyway? - it's a cover over a cover, so to speak.
Thanks, admittedly it's just resting there. I was thinking it could be 'no more nails'-ed on or perhaps some strong double-sided tape. I haven't got around to this part yet.
