After watch this great little tutorial by @jadekelsall on Creating an animated clock effect in PowerPoint
I came across this tutorial on a blog post about 13 Cool E-Learning Ideas You’ll Want to Get Your Hands On. After watching I realised I could achieve a lifelong teaching dream. To recreate the Countdown Clock in PowerPoint. Here is the final result:
You don’t have to make this all yourself of course. Here is a copy for you to download: Countdown Clock PowerPoint. This version doesn’t include the sound effect as it would be a breech of copyright to redistribute the the Countdown Theme. However if I was to say:

- You can use Zamzar to convert to a wav file
- and you can add sound to any effect in PowerPoint
You can do the maths.
