Animatronic head becomes its own project

I have decided that the animatronic head is sufficantly awesome that it deservers its own proect, not just an example script for BowlerStudio.

I ran a class this summer teaching robotics to a bunch of high school kids. They each built an animatronic head, and programmed it using the arduino. They had a blast and used the robot as a reason to learn to program and engage with engineering.

During the month of october i am hosting a free costume build day every sunday at my makerspace, Technocopia. A group of us are making wearable anamatronic heads and we are doing a "where the wild things are" group costume!
