ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino & ESPectro Programming – 22 Oct 2016

Standard

Hello! Today we will explore RGB LED by entering string to serial monitor to set the color of the led πŸ™‚

IMG_4880

Before the class started, Awa showed his now-working-LCD πŸ˜€ hello! πŸ˜‰

IMG_4881

Very few kids in the morning but more will show up πŸ™‚
IMG_4882

The schematic and the code

The happiest always: Awa πŸ™‚

IMG_4888

The messy desk and all stuff LOL
IMG_4889

Kids are kids. They play everywhere πŸ˜€

IMG_4891

We often have to split the screen that shows the upper part of the code on one half-side of the screen and the other to show the lower part of the code because the kids have different typing speed πŸ™‚
IMG_4892

Sometimes the schematic looks ok but doesn’t work. Today we found out that there were LOTS of dead RGB LED.

IMG_4894

Malik demonstrates potentiometer to control a microservo πŸ™‚ Nice!
IMG_4895

The possibility is endless! πŸ™‚ These things really ignite kids creativity πŸ™‚

IMG_4896

Reza at work
IMG_4897

Ozan had to type the original RGB LED code and make sure it worked before he couldΒ continue the string to serial monitor RGB LED.

IMG_4898

Rezandra is always so dedicated and serious πŸ™‚
IMG_4899

Darrell forgot to bring his kit but luckily Awa has 2 arduino board plus cables too so Awa lend it to Darrell πŸ™‚ We had spare breadboards, wires and resistors and RGB LED so all was good πŸ™‚

IMG_4900

Clarence was figuring out how to connect sensor to LCD module with so limited port πŸ˜€
IMG_4901

Areli had to type in the original RGB LED code too before moving on the next one πŸ™‚

IMG_4902

Malik gave ESPectro Core and Base a try πŸ™‚
IMG_4903

And this month ProCodeCG is 2 years old! One of the parents brought us a birthday cake! Yaay thanks!!! πŸ™‚

IMG_4904
IMG_4906

Come on kids lets sing and take a picture and then eat the cake! And the kids just sit still busy with their computers and breadboards LOL
IMG_4911

Happy Birthday ProCodeCG! May you will always be able to contribute good things to the community, to the people and to the nation πŸ™‚

Our ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class yesterday πŸ™‚ We’ve been splitting the class into two: 9 – 10:30 for Arduino/ESPectro Programming and 10:30 – 12 for Intro to Programming, GameMaker, Java Programming and Apps Programming.

But yesterday there were only 2 kids coming for the second class so we will compile the report into one report here πŸ™‚

The class in the morning, Awa and some students arrived earlier and it is almost sure that Awa set up the class again like last week πŸ™‚

IMG_4423

Today we’re going to explore temperature and humidity sensor πŸ™‚

IMG_4424

Ozan was getting ready with the board and looking at the screen for the scheme
IMG_4425

Clarence was busy tinkering with his ESPectro board

IMG_4426

Muhammad was going to test LDR sensor because it didn’t work last week
IMG_4427

Renald busy opening the handout on his smartphone

IMG_4428

Awa decided to play with ultrasonic sensor πŸ˜€ He plannedΒ to test his new LCD module but got distracted with the ultrasonic πŸ˜€
IMG_4429

Ok apparently Renald’s Mom had printed the handout so Ren was good to go! πŸ™‚

IMG_4430

The schematic
IMG_4432

Clarence had problems with USB UART Driver for ESPectro. This happens a lot on Windows Β 7

IMG_4433

IMG_4448

Everybody was busy. Including some parents πŸ™‚
IMG_4449

The twins’ dad is very good programmer. He knows this stuff very well πŸ™‚

IMG_4450

Ozan had to use two set of boards to finally found out that the problem was on the sensor driver πŸ˜€
IMG_4452 IMG_4453

Same thing happened with Ren’s computer (later his Mom fixed it by manually copying the DHT library to Arduino/libraries directory)
IMG_4455

Ren’s Mom helped Ozan with the driver
IMG_4456

And it finally worked and Ozan said “OK, I can go home now!” LOL

IMG_4457

Then we got a newcomer in the Intro to Programming class: Robbie πŸ™‚
IMG_4458

Kids from Arduino Class still have lots of things to do so they stay with the next class because we only have two kids in the next class πŸ˜€

IMG_4459

The twins
IMG_4460

and their works

IMG_4461

This is what Darell did yesterday. An app with button showing a minion πŸ˜€ Yaaay!

IMG_3704

We took a picture
IMG_3706

And start tinkering with DyCodeX ESPectro Core πŸ™‚ The driver worked just fine on Martin’s laptop.
IMG_3708

But most of our students Windows laptop won’t install the driver automatically
IMG_3710

So we had to go here andΒ tofind the driver

IMG_3711

After we got the driver then we discuss about the GPIO and other stuff
IMG_3712

We had problems with reading the layout and need some clarification about the devboard design

IMG_3713

It was just the right decision to have a meeting with DyCodeX while having Geeknesia CEO around. We discussed super important things about IoT
IMG_3715

Thanks so much Geeknesia, we really have to collaborate one day! πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Intro to Programming, GameMaker, Java Programming and Apps Programming – 8 Oct 2016

Standard

Hello, this is our class yesterday πŸ™‚

Areli created his own game at home, and he’s quite proud of it πŸ˜‰

IMG_3986

It’s surprisingly a very interesting game, Awa gave it a try and liked it πŸ˜‰

IMG_3985

The game is multiplayer, each box can be controlled by two players using different keys πŸ™‚

IMG_3987

Jundy and Faris were working on Java Programming πŸ™‚

IMG_3990

Tyo (on the right) had some problems with compiling (but finally he figured it out πŸ˜‰ ). Ozan (left) was supposed to do Java Programming but he was still figuring out how to make his LDR and LED work πŸ˜€

IMG_4004

Rafi was on his Blockly mission (the Bird part; a bit annoying but worth the effort πŸ˜‰ )

IMG_3993

We created a simple password window in Java Applet yesterday πŸ™‚

IMG_3994

Jundy’s still not working, probably because the applet .html file wasn’t correctly configured.
IMG_4003

We will continue the Intro for Programming, learn about more game tricks in GameMaker, more textfield and button next week for Java Programming, and create more apps with Thunkable next week πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino and ESPectro Programming – 8 Oct 2016

Standard

Yesterday we learned about LDR sensor πŸ™‚ Plus being interviewed by CNN Indonesia πŸ™‚

Awa (front) arrived very early so he set up the class! Awesome work Awa! Look at how neat and symmetrical he arranged the stuff! He even set up the teacher desk and payment desk, awesome πŸ˜€

IMG_3948

Kids arriving earlier, one didn’t like to be in a pic πŸ˜€

IMG_3950

Hanging out before the class started
IMG_3951

Before class prep

IMG_3952

Opening up handout and get ready to test our LDR sensor an
IMG_3953

Ozan unboxed his ProCodeCG Arduino kit for the first time πŸ™‚

IMG_3954

Reza started to put LDR and resistor on a breadboard and connect it to Arduino
IMG_3955

Malik had different mission. He was going to test USB UART Driver for his ESPectro Board

IMG_3956

While Awa was always totally interested in trying a new thing
IMG_3957

Hello Zahran, was it giving you a headache looking for that tiny LDR sensor in your toolbox ? πŸ˜€

IMG_3958

Muhammad was getting ready to follow the instructions in handout too
IMG_3959

Awa’s didn’t work. Muhammad and Faris gathered around to help πŸ˜‰

IMG_3960

While Malik was still finding ways to install the driver
IMG_3961

Ozan, have you made things work? πŸ˜€

IMG_3962

Reza did. The serial monitor showed the sensor reading, lower numbers when the sensor received low lights and higher numbers when it got more light.
IMG_3963

Muhammad’s worked well too.

IMG_3964

And Zahran’s.
IMG_3965

So we added a LED on the board so it will goes on when the LDR receives low light and goes off when the LDR receives more light.
IMG_3967

Not many kids came to the class yesterday. Most of them had something else to do at school or had to go somewhere with their parents.

IMG_3968

Areli showed his RGB LED experiments that he set its color to magenta, pink and other cool colors πŸ˜‰ Yaaay good job Areli πŸ˜‰
IMG_3970

Meanwhile, Reza had successfully made the LED on whenever he hovered over the LDR πŸ™‚ Yay!

IMG_3973

Time flies when we’re doing this πŸ˜‰
IMG_3974

Even parents had things to do of their own πŸ˜‰

IMG_3976

More kids showed up for the next class, and so did the reporter and cameraman from CNN Indonesia πŸ˜‰
IMG_3977

They interviewed Awa and asked him lots of questions πŸ˜€

IMG_3978

They also made Awa created blinking LED from scratch! And Awa did it by himself! Bravo Awa!!!

IMG_3981

Malik prepared his project to be demonstrated πŸ™‚ He had lots of plan but we were showing his LED clock project with Arduino (ESPectro demo will be for next time ;))

IMG_3982

Malik in action πŸ˜‰
IMG_3983

Yes, this kid in batik, is our captain sir! πŸ˜‰

IMG_3984

After the interview, Malik got back on his ESPectro USB UART Driver installation and worked. We installed ESPectro NeoPixel library to see if the board worked.
IMG_3988

Yeah, it worked now! Problem solved! πŸ˜‰
IMG_3998

Areli looked really interested seeing it πŸ˜€ Next week please bring your ESPectro, Areli πŸ˜‰

IMG_3999

Reza was busy helping Muhammad and other kid to get their LED work with LDR πŸ˜‰

IMG_3996

The circuit connection
IMG_4002

Ozan finally made LDR and LED work too (look at that happy face :D)

IMG_4004

Yeay! Not bad for the first day unboxing the Arduino kit πŸ˜‰
IMG_4005

We’ll be exploring temperature and humidity sensor next week πŸ˜‰
