Shark Week cometh

A little cardboard goes a long way. This DIY cardboard shark mask turns the wearer into a fearsome creature from the deep. Using the small microphone on the Circuit Playground Express board, this mask is able to detect loud sounds and start chomping its mouth in response.

Easy project for people who are new to coding and electronics, or anyone who loves cardboard construction.
