I had to look up what a Servo motor is :-). After doing some reading, I do not see that it is any more simple, for me anyway.
The art project is a long description, and probably many ways to achieve the goal, but there are certain criteria that the students need to meet. It is an art project with 2 moving scenes, one drawn and the other painted. He wants:
A motor to run for 2 or 3 seconds, not exact.
Something on the breadboard that holds a charge for 5 or 15 minutes, not sure yet, then lets the charge go to the motor.
Battery or hand crank to create charge.
To repeat cycle every 5 or 15 minutes.
The project is not the circuitry, this is what Andrew determined he needs for his "Art".
If we use a battery, then power will always be supplied.
Something on the breadboard needs to uptake the charge.
After several minutes the something(s) should release the charge to the motor.
If a Servo motor will do this then I just need to know how to setup the power and delay. But I read that the servo motor turns 90 degrees then back 90 degrees or 180 degrees all of the way back. Andrews setup cannot go backwards. Maybe I interpreted it wrong.
Either way, is it possible to setup a breadboard in the fashion that I described? This way seems to have more for the display and meets with Andrews vision.
