Those 30 Second Cooking Videos Work!

In the last year it seems like there has been an explosion of 30 second cooking videos on the interwebs. These might seem gimmicky (and often click-bait), but when done well they lay out the steps to accomplish a project new to you that might seem daunting or overly complicated at first. You can always choose to slow things down or pause the video while you catch up, but it is nice to know that every step is encapsulated in just that short video clip. Below is a one minute video that takes students, parents or teachers through the basics of making a switch with an LED, a couple of craft sticks, wires and brads. The main tool is called a Crop-A-Dile and is used in our classroom a lot to fasten grommets and rivets.
