IMG_5867

We watched two examples of movie from comics. These ones are not animation πŸ™‚

So the histore began

IMG_5875IMG_5876IMG_5877IMG_5878IMG_5879IMG_5880IMG_5881IMG_5882IMG_5883

Comics in digital form can be classified based on the application or based on the form.IMG_5884IMG_5885

The production of digital comics is a long and tiring tremendous work. It requires dedication and hardwork.

IMG_5886

The distribution of digital comics can be in different formats and applications.

IMG_5888

Comics have their electronic version too πŸ™‚

IMG_5889

These are good references for further research about digital comics.IMG_5898IMG_5899

Today we learned SO MUCH about comics. There are things and details we have never heard or even thought of before.

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 20 Feb 2016 – Multiple Choice Quiz in Python

Standard

Hello, we’re going a bit advanced today: we create a code to read questions from file and create a GUI for displaying all the questions and answers as multiple choice quiz, also with slider window on the side πŸ˜‰

IMG_5744

It is quite a long code, reaching more than 100 lines πŸ˜€ But the kids just type it!

IMG_5745

This code runs on Python 2.7 because 3.5 won’t recognize tkMessageBox πŸ˜€

IMG_5746

Many people happen to see us doing this ask us: “Are you sure this kids understand coding? In Python?!?”. Well, this kids don’t just understand, they can modify it and also make their own πŸ™‚

IMG_5747IMG_5748IMG_5749

We got a newcomer today, a little guy named Awa, a 2nd grade πŸ™‚

IMG_5750IMG_5751IMG_5752IMG_5753

Awa was given a task to solve some simple logic, algorithm and problem solving exercise Β πŸ™‚ The dad jumped in to help! πŸ˜‰

IMG_5754

We have lots of things to do next week, but the main problem is that not all laptops have the specs for high consuming applications, and our internet connection is not very reliable lately so we will figure out something that will work for next week! πŸ˜‰

Standard

Today we have an astronomy communicator and founder of langitselatan, Avivah Yamani shares about “Science and Technology for Astronomy” πŸ™‚

IMG_5452IMG_5453

Astronomy is a very interesting discipline. It starts from the earth

IMG_5454

to millions of galaxies..

IMG_5455

That leaves one big question unanswered.

It is interesting to see astronomy on the past

IMG_5457

compared with astrology

to the astronomy today

IMG_5459

Astronomy is very useful to learn other subjects and disciplines

IMG_5460

It can be collaborated with anything

IMG_5461

langitselatan was established based on these facts

IMG_5462

Started with Centaur on 2005, langitselatan is surviving until today

IMG_5463

langitselatan uses new media to communicate astronomy to the world

IMG_5464

It also implements astronomy in the real world

IMG_5465

e-book and games are some products created by langitselatan to implement and communicate astronomy to people.

IMG_5466
