#2 decided that she would try inventing a mini portable air-conditioner. She took some plastic sheets, cut them up and taped them to form a water-proof box. She used some food skewers to reinforce the sides.
|The base of her air-con|
She made a cover out of an old shoe box, and cut 2 holes in it. She attached a little duct over the smaller hole. This is where the cold air will escape from.
|Attaching the vent|
She placed some ice cubes into the box and attached her mini fan into the bigger hole and turned it on. Viola, she can now do her work in air-con comfort!

Sane tips: I love how #2 readily thinks up ideas to solve her problems. Firstly it’s a great way to occupy her time during the school holidays, and secondly it’s wonderful how she tries to find a solution for her problems by herself.
Save tips: She knows she’s not supposed to turn on the air-conditioner during the day, so she decided to invent one herself!
