Today the class is at Digilife Dago again 😉 We did some improvements on our previous OOP codes in Java 🙂 Some kids have just got their new ProCodeCG jackets and this is how they look like 🙂
Some kids preferred to sit by the window with set up like this 😀
Pru started to install Greenfoot
And so did Clarence
This cool ProCodeCG kid is Malik! He had finished all his homework (after finishing all the tutorial last week): adding more subclasses, adding scores and live bar!
The persistence look of our typical little coders in ProCodeCG 🙂
The youngest one, Awa, started picking up what he left last week
The air conditioner temperature was set very low so kids were very comfortable being under the jacket and hood 😀
This is what Clarence did with his code: adding many subclasses randomly with funny weird names 😀 No wonder he got error messages on every classes 😀
It was really surprising that kids can understand about Object Oriented Programming (OOP) very intuitively!!!
Doing this activity every week is a very nice and fulfilling experience 🙂
The class grows so fast. This are Faris and Malik discussing about modifying the code. Faris suggest and improvement to Malik’s code: he wanted to improve the movement of the spaceship to be able to move smother with smaller fractions of degrees (and it worked 😉 )
This is the code modification by Faris
This one said that he was hungry and needed to fuel up before get passed out again LOL
Capt. Syahna also got so busy 🙂
Awa after fueling himself up, and decided to tried his ProCodeCG jacket on 😉
Faris is now working on Awa’s code. Awa wanted to duplicate the object being eaten by another object 😀
So Malik was giving help too
And they discuss it together. How cute! 🙂
While Pru and Clarence were busy exploring Greenfoot by making objects move, adding some control and move them more 😀
These ones are still working on the same thing. They are really a good team. One of the value ProCodeCG wants to educate to kids is teamwork 🙂
At the end of the class Faris showed us a video explaining that Greenfoot can be connected to a Kinect!!! How cool is that!!!
We definitely have to try this one day!
The code is not very long (but the library would certainly be is 😀 )
So we learned so much today! And more next week! 😉
