Whatever Bill did, he did a good job. The Falcons' project looked a bit crude at first glance, but given that these kids were only grades 5 & 6 they did an amazing job, they made full use of the LEDs and 7-seg displays, used both the PIC and a 555/4017 to drive them, and did all this on rotating platform. If Bill and the teachers can can get this kind of work out of such young kids, they'll go far.
