Servo Motors get Spooky

Things got spooky this week in the Academy of Leadership in Emerging Technologies as students used servo motors to rotate skulls, skeleton hands, and other ghouly creatures. Students in the first year of the academy have been spending the first quarter getting familiar with electricity and electrical circuits. They built the circuit necessary to run the servo motor and manipulated the code to dictate the degree of rotation. As their circuits become more and more complex, some Toros might find they get spooked in the hallway when their motion trips a sensor and a skeleton hand waves back at them!
