ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 1 Oct 2016 – Arduino and ESPectro Programming

Hello, this is the report of our Arduino and ESPectro class yesterday!

Renald arrived very early and helped setting up the room 🙂 Thanks so much! 🙂

Then Clarence arrived. He was going to connect an LCD board to Arduino

Malik brought his ESPectro board and was going to fix the problem with the UART driver

Welcome back, Rheino! Let’s unbox your ProCodeCG Arduino Kits and make things 🙂

Ren was busy downloading the handout from Trello via his smartphone

We still had problems with USB UART Windows Driver for ESPectro Board

We tried to use different ESPectro board and different USB cables and different port, still it didn’t work

Because the problem is the driver that couldn’t be downloaded and installed. Updating didn’t work too.

So Malik opened up his toolbox and pulled out something else to work with

An LCD board 😀

While Rheino was catching up with the class. He was on blinking the LED on board and LED on breadboard (and all worked well)

Clarence was working on his LCD board

That with Malik’s help and assistance finally worked 😉

Ren’s ultrasonic wiring was ready to but it didn’t work because the GND and VCC were switched so after Reza told him that he should switched them, it worked 🙂

This is Reza’s Arduino IDE serial print, showing the reading of the ultrasonic sensor

It work nicely! Darrell (not in the picture) was very excited to see how the sensor actually work and he will finish his next week 🙂

Capt. Malik had a running competition so he changed clothes right after the class ended (and left the computer for his little brother who was in the next class) 🙂 Good luck capt!
