Activating arduino circuit with FPGA

Hi, I’m working on a robot project for school that requires the use of a DE0 Cyclone V FPGA and I’m trying to activate the arduino circuit using a switch and the GPIO pins on the FPGA. I tried using an AND gate with a GPIO pin connected to one input, then the Vcc connected to the other, but got inconsistent results. What am I doing wrong here? The FPGA and Arduino run on the same voltage (5V). Is it a power conversion problem or something else? The FPGA just needs to activate the arduino circuit. Everything else is wired through the arduino. Would appreciate help because I can’t find much good information on this.
