How to put a timer in powerpoint?

Hi everyone,

Me and some friend of mine are organizing a quiz competition in our colony. And so i need to put a timer in every other slide in the powerpoint presentation. I mean in one slide question will be given which will be shown for say 1 minute. then next slide will play which will contain the timer for say 30 sec then again next slide with a question and next slide after that with a timer. I know how to make a slide show with time interval in powerpoint but don't know how to insert the timer. In google search i am geting free timer with the minimum time interval of 1 minute but i need a timer with 30 sec. Is it possible to make?

Thanks for any reply and suggestion.

With regards

I'm not sure this functionality exists in the native PowerPoint, but you could try this VBA add-on:
