    We don't do peoples homework for them.

    Read your class notes and ask your teacher if you don't understand what you have to do.

    well, first you need to create a form, then put a button on it, with some text on it like "go!" or "start", then define a button click event, in which you read the system clock, and then in a loop check if 30 seconds has passed, and when it has, exit the loop and create a message box, with appropriate text, with an OK button

    Anyway, that's how I would do it.
