ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 24 Dec 2016


Yesterdayย we learned a new component: seven segment ๐Ÿ™‚ This class started at 1 pm because there was another schedule in the morning. Not so many kids could make it to the class, but we had enough to start the class ๐Ÿ™‚


Nafis was back after several weeks ๐Ÿ™‚ Welcome back Nafis ๐Ÿ™‚


Farrell was ready to explore his new TFT display and connect it to a gyroscope ๐Ÿ™‚ He needs toย figure out how to makeย itย work before displaying the data readings from gyroscope.

Nafis’ mom is an electrical engineer, so he really had a great help there ๐Ÿ™‚


Capt. Fizhan helped Nafis to get started ๐Ÿ™‚


We use common anode seven segment to display numbers from 0 to 9. Renald used common cathode one and it worked as well ๐Ÿ™‚


Rezandra missed several classes, and it was great to see him in class again yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚


Ren finished his really quick and started to explore how to input the number from serial monitor ๐Ÿ™‚


And our Lead Captain was back too, Capt. Zaki ๐Ÿ™‚ He was really busy during his first year in high school, now he is catching up with the class to be able to assist the upcoming kids coding camp ๐Ÿ™‚ Farrell asked lots of technical things to Zaki ๐Ÿ™‚


Captain Malik! ๐Ÿ™‚

While Capt. Malik preferred to tinker with his new 8×8 dot matrix LED ๐Ÿ˜€


Ok it worked and there’s so much thing we can do with this thing ๐Ÿ™‚


Malik drew this cute creature


Or smiley


The next challenge for Malik is to make this object shift from left or right ๐Ÿ™‚

And the next challenge for the class is to enter a number from 0 – 9 from the serial monitor to be displayed on seven segment ๐Ÿ™‚
