1. The meter will be hard to make unless you have very good workshop skills

2. You learn programming skills by starting with very small tasks, like flashing an LED, then turning it on in response to an input, then turning it on conditionally.

As you become more familiar you will understand how to count pulses and send outputs to the counter to operate that.

3. No one here is likely to create the program for you - the learning experience will be good.

The 2 videos show you how the meter might work.

As for the programming - If your team are up to it they will know how.
