Make Your Own Jaw Snapping Pumpkin

The other day I posted a video of my latest project of a pumpkin who has a jaw that opens and closes.

This project is one of three projects that we have worked on in our Young Engineers of Today class that we run in the evenings and online through webinars.

Many have asked me how I made this pumpkin. Instead of writing up step by step directions I created a video as I find that to work best. I hope you find this helpful. If you have questions let me know.

I cannot wait to share with you what the students create in lab next week.

Here is an image of the wiring using 123D Circuits

UPDATE: Here are other pictures of the pumpkin process and a simpler way of wiring.
