ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 4 March 2017


In several weeks we will move on to a more advance development board: Espectro πŸ™‚ While waiting for Espectro mass production, we will use the last few weeks exploring Arduino before we start to connect to cloud via wifi and create IoT stuff πŸ™‚


Like usual, it took some time for kids to come, probably because it is Saturday πŸ™‚



Today we learned to create morse encoder using LED and buzzer πŸ™‚


All is ok as far as we got Capt. Reza onΒ duty πŸ˜‰


We were trying to add number to be encoded but we had to convert it from integer to char


and apparently it wasn’t that easy πŸ˜‰


And this is how Reza looks when he’s determined to do something πŸ˜€


Hello Raul! Raul was catching up with the task from previous class. His stopwatch with 2 buttons didn’t work


Mama Ren gave some help but still it didn’t work


So RaulΒ switched to the morse encoder and it worked πŸ™‚


Clarence came with loads of progress to brag about πŸ˜€


He had several project going on πŸ˜€ This one synchronizes time and display it to the TFT


Clarence also make improvements to his stopwatch code, making it more precise with better display design πŸ™‚ He even added a reset function to the single button, along with progress bar display on the TFT to show how long the button has been pressed πŸ™‚


Clarence also created some cool patterns on the TFT, as a preparation to create analog stopwatch πŸ™‚

Cinta was keeping up with the class too, she was working on her stopwatch while also doingΒ her writing project πŸ˜‰



Ozan. Always like this when we take his picture πŸ˜€


LOL. But the most important thing is the schematic worked! πŸ™‚


Ren did the schematicΒ quickly πŸ™‚ But the usual uploading error occur again πŸ˜€ Only Mama Ren can solve that πŸ˜€


Rafi was back in the class yaaaay πŸ™‚


He broke his left wrist but still so excited to learn πŸ™‚ Mama Rafi stood by him all the time to help πŸ™‚


When thing went wrong, Capt. Reza came to help πŸ™‚


Rafi was trying to make his measuring height work and finally it did πŸ˜‰

We also had Dika back! He jumped straight to the schematic we were doing today, and it worked yaaay πŸ˜‰


Next week we will start to explore LCD πŸ™‚ Will connect our previous project to LCD and display the result there πŸ˜‰
