Picaxe 28 circiut board robot

I am trying to make the robot in the start here section.  The motors work when I hold the wires to batteries but when I try to attach them to the board they don't work.  I have followed the instructions carefully and soldered the wires to the pins (as I don't have connecters).  I have tried several times and am still stuck.  This robot is for a school project and has to be ready in two days.  I really don't know what to do can anyone help?

Thanks
