How to connect micro:bit to excel for robotic hand hacking stem project?


I am working on the Hacking Stem Robot Hand project with my high school students. This is the first time I have attempted this project. We are having difficulty getting the glove to connect with excel. According to the instructions I needed to install the program on the Micro:bit, save an editable version of the excel workbook, and install a data stream add-in with excel. I have done all three steps and nothing is working. When I hook the wires between the micro:bit and the glove the micro:bit goes through numbers then shows a sad face. I am thinking this is a hardware problem with the wiring for the glove and the micro:bit, however, I don't know how to troubleshoot this problem. Do you have any suggestions or videos I can watch to help with this?

Thank you,
