Design a Microexpression Zoetrope

In this engineering design challenge, learners animate a facial expression and make a machine (zoetrope) that plays the animation back. As learners work their way through the design process, they can upload descriptions and images of their plans, designs, and testing process. If learners register, they can submit their work for mentor feedback, and a mentor will respond with comments and suggestions.
