The second milestone was connecting two stepper motors to the project.The purpose of this was to make the stepper spin like the hour and minute hands of a clock.First i connected the negative and positive pins on the stepper motor to the negative and positive pins on the breadboard,IN1-4 pins to the digital pins on the Arduino.The steps and speed determined by the code made the motor spin every once every hour and minute.
The starter Project was connecting the servo to the arduino uno board. The purpose of this was to ensure the arduino worked,if it did the servo rotated fast or slow depending on how it was programmed.the first thing i did was connecting the servo arm and ensuring it stayed in place using a screw,then i connected jumper wires to the end wires so i could connect them to the arduino,i connected the brown pin on the servo to the GND of the arduino,the red pin of the servo to the 5V of the arduino and lastly the orange pin of the servo to the digital pin(9) on the arduino.My last step was programing the setup so it could function.Some issues i faced were trying to get the right code for the setup to work and where to connect the pins.
