Is there a way to program a robot with python (ex, an electric motor, control it's speed, etc)

i hope someone here can help me.

basically, me and my friend have a summer project.

in this project, we need something that would basically function as a
blender. we know we'll need to buy a motor that spins, but what we're
having trouble with is figuring out how to program it. we want to be
able to control the speed of the motor. how would we accomplish this?

i'm new to all of this, so i'm having a hard time wrapping my mind
around how it'd be possible to program one of those things :\

ex: what if i want the motor to turn for 10 seconds. stop for 5. then
turn the other direction.

would you program it the same way you would on a personal computer
(via c, python, etc)?
