Try looking at the examples, Arduino is programmed in C/C++ with support libraries.  There are various shields for motor driving, search these forums for more inspiration?
Um.
I can understand that it's programmed with C, but what about these shields? And which forums?
2  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Connecting a motor to the Arduino board on: December 06, 2011, 06:50:36 am
HI.
As you can already tell, I am new here, and new to Arduino.
Now, for my 9th grade science class, I have a project on this, and I would like to know how this works, as I am absolutely an idiot with electrics.
And here it is -

I am supposed to connect a small motor to the Arduino Uno in some way so when I do the code part of it (I have been assigned that, since I don't really know the first thing about connecting wires just so), it is supposed to move a small solar panel in sync with the sun. And then start all over again.

Now, I am a beginner programmer (reading a small manual on Python), and I don't know what code Arduino uses (unless it's its own code), so it would be very appreciated if someone gives me a hint on what to do  smiley-sweat

Thanks,
