IMG_3672

Definition of hoax:

 

IMG_3674 IMG_3675

IMG_3676

An example of (subjective) opinion

IMG_3677

(Objective) fact

IMG_3678

Hoax that looks like a fact

IMG_3679

A quote with a picture next to it doesn’t make it the truth to believe πŸ˜€

IMG_3680

The cause of hoax spreading

IMG_3681 2

IMG_3682 IMG_3683

Skill to know the facts

IMG_3684

Problems

Checklist to identify hoax

IMG_3686

How to deal?

IMG_3687

An example of apps that makes it more difficult not to share things (including hoax) πŸ™‚

IMG_3688

The faster the information being spread, the faster the spread of the hoax

IMG_3689

We’re not hoax! (or probably we are πŸ˜€ )

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 25 Feb 2017

Standard

Lots of topics and lots of progress πŸ™‚

Pru was working on her Speech to Text App

IMG_3498

And worked straight away πŸ™‚

IMG_3499

Then she continued to create apps with array πŸ™‚

IMG_3513

IMG_3514

Lots of blocks πŸ™‚

IMG_3515

While Tyo continuing his attendance list prototype in Java πŸ™‚

IMG_3509

Tyo had modified the code from last week and add date combobox to it πŸ™‚ Β This apps is going to be really useful, thank you Tyo πŸ™‚

IMG_3518

Yogi made lots of improvements to his game in GameMaker

IMG_3510

The game has cute background and animated sprites πŸ™‚

IMG_3522

IMG_3517

It can shoot laser too πŸ™‚

 

IMG_3524

Vian was following the tutorial to create animated sprites and how to shoot another sprites. While Areli (on the background) was working on Camera App with Thunkable πŸ˜‰

IMG_3512

Fadhil was learning HTML before but he seemed to like creating games so we switched the topic to GameMaker and he looked happy πŸ˜‰

IMG_3521

The class today πŸ™‚

We already have plan to do next Saturday! To create more and add improvements πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 25 Feb 2017

Standard

Our regular awesomeness πŸ˜‰

IMG_3479

Capt. Awa had finished the task to be done today (he had already made a video :D), so he was ready to assist the class today πŸ˜‰

IMG_3480

Today we had two tasks: creating stopwatch with 2 buttons and smart lamp with RGB LED πŸ˜‰ Β This is a Captain Meeting, discussing what to be delivered in class and making sure that the schematic works fine πŸ˜‰

IMG_3543

Friendship in class πŸ˜‰ Hello welcome back Farrell πŸ˜‰

IMG_3481

Farrell’s SSTV Project has to wait (due to the expensive components :D) so Farrell should stick with what’s given in the class πŸ™‚

IMG_3507

Clarence made lots of progress with the TFT LCD πŸ˜‰ He created lots of screen effects and cool modifications πŸ˜‰

IMG_3482 2

Clarence was curious on how to use button. Lucky that we did a project with buttons today, so Clarence can follow the class while doing his own project πŸ˜‰

IMG_3493

Clarence made stopwatch with one button instead of two πŸ™‚ and send the output to the screen πŸ™‚

IMG_3505

He kept modifying the code and make the stopwatch works with nice display πŸ™‚

IMG_3523

Next target is to display the stopwatch in analog πŸ™‚

IMG_3516

Nice view πŸ˜‰

IMG_3486

Capt. Awa was very busy making sure everybody had got it right πŸ˜€

IMG_3500

Zahran was back πŸ™‚

IMG_3489

After a while, Zahran came back to catch up πŸ˜‰

IMG_3501

Nafis was really happy today for some reasons: we didn’t use seven segments and he had lots of friends πŸ™‚

IMG_3490 2

Capt. Awa assisting Ozan (on the back) and Farrell (in the corner)

IMG_3497

Ozan doing his schematic under very close supervision of Capt. Awa :

IMG_3508

And it worked, yay! (They use jacket slave to cover the LDR entirely so the RGB LED will light up πŸ˜€

IMG_3511

Next week we’ll do more interesting projects πŸ˜‰ See you then πŸ™‚

We prepared materials for this Saturday’s Kids Regular Coding Class – Apps Programming: Speech to Text App πŸ™‚

IMG_3169 - small

IMG_3170 - small IMG_3172 - small

And Speech to Text – Text to Speech App πŸ™‚ Later we will collaborate Arduino Kids with Apps Programming Kids to create project together πŸ™‚

IMG_3174

Today we had ProCodeCG Kids session too with Clarence πŸ™‚

IMG_3176

We discussed about his TFT LED project, how he set up the frame per second number so the picture animated on the LED won’t be flickering πŸ™‚

IMG_3177

We had Coding Mum Meeting at the same time

IMG_3178

IMG_3179 IMG_3180

And Meeting with DyCodeX Team afterwards πŸ™‚ We have lots of plans to collaborate πŸ™‚

IMG_3181 IMG_3182

IMG_3068

Jundy worked on Java to, finished all the examples in handout but didn’t want to do the attendance list project πŸ˜€

IMG_3046

Jundy said he will switch to Arduino class next week πŸ˜€

IMG_3059

IMG_3050

Raul did lots of achievements today πŸ™‚ He managed to debug the code, and made it work πŸ™‚

IMG_3060

the block

IMG_3061

And it worked πŸ˜‰

IMG_3064

Koosha has got Python 3.4 installed to his computer and had copied the handout too πŸ™‚ He tried some apps on his Android device just to see how it works πŸ˜‰ But still he wants to learn Python instead of Apps Programming πŸ˜‰

IMG_3055

Row of girls πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 18 Feb 2017

Standard

Our Saturday tinkering πŸ™‚ Today we display temperature sensor reading to two seven segments πŸ™‚

IMG_3018

Ozan, like usual, didn’t want to be in a pic πŸ˜€

IMG_3019

Nafis scratched his head finding out that we’re still continue the crazy and tangled wiring πŸ˜€

IMG_3020

This is what Nafis was working on πŸ˜€

IMG_3032

IMG_3027

Clarence! Came with LOTS of ideas πŸ™‚ Today he explored his new TFT LCD with ESPectro πŸ™‚

IMG_3021

IMG_3023

Clarence tried every library and example he found, and modified them to see what happen πŸ™‚

IMG_3031

IMG_3036

Reza was back yaaay πŸ™‚ He had to do lots of catching up πŸ™‚

IMG_3022

Hello Ren πŸ™‚

IMG_3025

After struggling with overheated temperature sensors, and the not-showing-the-value seven segments

IMG_3030

It finally worked! Yaaay Ren πŸ˜‰

IMG_3047

Raul was terrified knowing that we were using schematic from last week while he had pulled up all the wires and component πŸ˜€ But he had enough patience and persistence to do it all over again πŸ˜‰

IMG_3028

Raul’s schematic mightΒ still not working properly, but the code was. We connected his code to a ready schematic and it worked correctly πŸ™‚

IMG_3033

Aaand, we had a new student today πŸ™‚ His name is Koosha πŸ™‚

IMG_3044

He already had a super complete toolbox, and he already understands LOTS of things πŸ™‚ He’s been learning by himself via YouTube but his father said he needs to be guided to the right direction so here he was in ProCodeCG Class πŸ˜‰

IMG_3026

Koosha started with multiple function button and then moved on to ultrasonic and buzzer. Later he add LED to the schematic and tried the ultrasonic piano πŸ™‚

IMG_3029

Next week we’ll do different project with different components πŸ™‚ We think kids are fed up already with the seven segments πŸ˜€
