so you're going to build a spider let's take a look at what's inside the kit we've got a click and stick tap light that's going to be the body for spider and then we have some header pin connectors we've got our Arduino Nano and some popsicle sticks so you'll need those and we've also got some earrings and an ell 298 motor controller to 5 volt motors those are toy motors we've got two bottle caps with holes drilled in them that are large and two bottle caps with holes drilled on them that are small and then we have two 9-volt batteries alright the next thing is we have our mini USB cable so that's going to allow us to connect our computer to our Arduino then we've got four header pin connector jumper wires and these are female the female jumper wires and then we also have some wire you're going to need that to connect all the different parts and two 9-volt battery connectors so you'll need those to bring the power for the batteries to your motor controller we've also have also have a washer there that's a fender washer and then two three color LEDs that's a red blue and green LED and we need also two resistors there's one still in the box there and we need a paper clip you'll also need electrical tape or shrink wrap you can use either to cover up the exposed electrical connections and so now let's take a look at the the tools we're going to need to put all this stuff together so push this all aside so we're going to need a wire stripper now you can also use a scissors or a nipper pliers to strip the insulation off the wire here's a nipper pliers recommend using one of those two and then a regular pliers that can be used to crimp things and then we have our needle nose which can be used to bend the wire in a loop we have a small screwdriver which we're going to need to use and a hot glue gun and we're also going to need a soldering iron which will allow us to connect all of the different wires together using solder and gives a more permanent connection if you decide to use the shrink wrap you'll also need a heat gun
