IMG_0746

Ioan was still excited creating games with GameMaker 🙂

IMG_0709

He got lots of sprites and objects

IMG_0710

IMG_0721

and he added background to the game

IMG_0712 IMG_0713

And Capt. Azriel taught Ioan lots of techniques in GameMaker

IMG_0718

IMG_0732

Ioan learned some new tricks and the game he was creating was a great one 🙂

IMG_0748

Ain installed Spigot Server and Minecraft

IMG_0719

and started to learn JavaScript commands in Minecraft 🙂

IMG_0731

Ain is also good at RedStone 🙂

IMG_0786

Jundy came with a lot of surprises

IMG_0758

IMG_0737

He created a Minecraft world with Blender!

IMG_0738 1

IMG_0739 IMG_0740

IMG_0742

He created every block from scratch. Unbelievable.

IMG_0743 1

IMG_0744 1

Then Jundy created some awesome mechanism with RedStone in (the real) Minecraft 🙂

IMG_0779

This works like a shift register

IMG_0780

And we’re thinking on how to implement this machine into something useful. Great work, Jundy 😉

IMG_0793

We got newcomers 🙂 Hello Jackson 🙂

IMG_0745

Jackson has a very strong skill in programming basics already 🙂

IMG_0757

He finished CodeCombat very easily

IMG_0783

And also the LightBot. Next week Jackson wants to learn Minecraft Modding 🙂

IMG_0784

The other newcomer is Jesse, Jackson’s friend 🙂

IMG_0768

Jesse was working on CodeCombat but because he had to leave earlier, he hadn’t finished it and didn’t continue to LightBot 🙂

IMG_0769

Jesse wants to learn Minecraft Modding too, next week 🙂

IMG_0785

Altair continued his Racing Car Game

IMG_0760

IMG_0747

Ain showed Al how to create random spawning objects 🙂

IMG_0764

Ain is a great teacher 😉

IMG_0765

Yay, Altair finished his Racing Car Game, with exploding animation and scores 🙂

IMG_0776

IMG_0782

Tyo wanted to created games with jMonkeyEngine

IMG_0749

Tyo did some research and downloaded the library. He will see if it’s not to difficult and if it is, we’re going to find other projects 🙂

IMG_0766

Azriel making lots of progress today

IMG_0759

and learned lots of debugging 🙂 Programming is a great way to teach discipline and consistency to kids 😉

IMG_0763

IMG_0767

Faris is still doing image recognition research

IMG_0726

He tried and learned lots of libraries

IMG_0729

IMG_0751

IMG_0753

Train the system

IMG_0750

And these are the results

IMG_0762

 

IMG_0773

IMG_0774 IMG_0775

Using our own dataset! Amazing work Faris. A huge progress!

IMG_0797

Can’t wait to see the kids again next week! 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming

Standard

Our Arduino/ESPectro Programming class today 🙂

IMG_0708

IMG_0728 1

One of our extension cable didn’t work so Capt. Awa opened and checked it with voltmeter 🙂

IMG_0715

He found the source of problem and fixed it 🙂

IMG_0716

Took extra patience and some amount of perseverance to do this kind of job 😀

IMG_0717

IMG_0724

It took lots of positions too 😀

IMG_0725

And finally after several testing, Capt. Awa officially announced that the extension cable was working properly and ready to be used. Thanks so much Capt.!

IMG_0733

After got his technical support job done, Capt. Awa got back to his sonar project 🙂 He was experimenting with Parallax
IMG_0711//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0722

and its standard servo 🙂

IMG_0723

the ultrasonic was mounted on top of the servo

IMG_0778

Capt. Awa teamed up with Clarence because Clarence will develop the code to display the reading from Awa’s sonar system to a TFT display

IMG_0734 1

IMG_0735 1

A really great teamwork 🙂

IMG_0756

Clarence also has his own project, sorting algorithm visualization

IMG_0741

He added more features including serial monitor commands to run the sorting using any chosen algorithm

IMG_0770//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0771//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0755

IMG_0772

Then he started working on ultrasonic

IMG_0790

and the reading worked just fine

IMG_0787

IMG_0788

IMG_0789

Next is to add micro servo  🙂

IMG_0792

Ozan was still struggling with adding buzzer to ultrasonic counter

IMG_0727

The ultrasonic counter worked fine until he added a buzzer 😀

IMG_0720

We’ve done lots of debugging and try-and-retry attempts but it still didnt’ work 🙂 Have to try again next week 🙂
IMG_0730

IMG_0777//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

After the class: kids just wouldn’t stop 😀

IMG_0798

Friendship scenes after the class 🙂

IMG_0800

IMG_0795

Capt. Fizhan (corner) was given a project to design a logo for Bu Rieny (Coding Mom Batch-3) with Wibi (middle) and Ozan (right) accompanying 🙂

IMG_0796

Will be reporting more excitement next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 21 Oct 2017

Standard

Our open topics kids coding class 🙂

IMG_0281

IMG_0283

Altair had just attended one session of GameMaker and this is the progress when he came back to the next class 🙂

IMG_0244

He added more features to the game

IMG_0237

plus lots of sprites, objects and background and rooms 🙂

IMG_0238

IMG_0240

He added levels with different challenges on every levels 😉

IMG_0241 IMG_0242

And he started to create the next game: Racing Car 🙂

IMG_0251

Capt. Azriel helped Al to resize the background

IMG_0278

Altair’s little brother joined in 😀

IMG_0275

He wanted to play and typing something on the laptop and Altair was very busy keeping him away from the laptop 😀

IMG_0276

Ain had created lots of apps with Thunkable but his laptop has problems with connecting to internet so while he waited he opened GameMaker and improved his game 🙂

IMG_0255

We used different laptop to log in to Ain’s Thunkable account and these are some of what Ain’s had created: guessing odd or even number app

IMG_0279

IMG_0269

Bouncing Ball App

IMG_0270

And Doodling App 😉

IMG_0273

Capt. Faris was still busy with his research: was given a new task with TensorFlow 😉

IMG_0260

IMG_0311

IMG_0296

Clarence was back! This time he wanted to install C++ compiler and started coding in C++

IMG_0262

Faris helped

IMG_0263

IMG_0287

Clarence apparently had so many things in his head to be coded in C++ 🙂

IMG_0271

And we had a newcomer: Brillian 🙂

IMG_0265

Brillian had to go through Intro to Programming

IMG_0268

First, he had to finished Minecraft Hour of Code

IMG_0285

and got the certificate

IMG_0294

and then he learned about functions with LightBot

IMG_0301

IMG_0303

IMG_0304 2

And more logics with some Python using CodeCombat 🙂 In the next class Brillian will learn more with Blockly Games or go straight to game making 🙂

IMG_0308

Nanin! Forgot to save her work :(( So she had to started all over againnnn NOOOOO

IMG_0267

Nanin had to browse through the download folder to find all the pictures of the animals

IMG_0272

and recreated everything

IMG_0292

And then Nanin and Mom discussed the project to be presented to the next exhibition

IMG_0300

She looked so excited 🙂 We’ll see what app Nanin will create next week 🙂

IMG_0302 2

Vian is getting better each week 🙂

IMG_0280

He created more advanced games and keep adding more features

IMG_0288

The game looked really fun 🙂

IMG_0289 IMG_0290

IMG_0291

IMG_0297

And Vian got the best tutor: Ain (wearing black hat)

IMG_0295

IMG_0310

IMG_0312

And the best way to test a game is by playing it, together 🙂

IMG_0313

Azriel made lots of progress too 🙂

IMG_0293

He started to code in JavaScript to build things in Minecraft

IMG_0298

Starting with simple shapes and structures like triangle and stairs

IMG_0305

IMG_0306

IMG_0320

the result

IMG_0309

Very nice progress, Azriel! So proud of you! 😉

IMG_0321

And at the end of the class we learned Sewing 101 by Mama Ain 😉

IMG_0246

IMG_0247 IMG_0248

*Ignore the face 😀

IMG_0323

The point is: we have lots of topics in the class and we’re always having fun! See you next week! 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro – 21 Oct 2017

Standard

Our dose of coding every Saturday 🙂

IMG_0245

Cinta spent 2 sessions continuing her Arduino schematic design and simulation using Proteus 🙂

IMG_0243

She tried several designs and with different components

IMG_0286//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0249

Proteus provides library of components so it is very helpful 😉

IMG_0277

Nafis was back after a while, and he was working on adding buzzer and LED to ultrasonic counter

IMG_0250 IMG_0252

Nafis refused to connect and test the components one by one; instead he put all components and compile to see what happened 😀 Still not working and he has to debug it on the next class 😀

IMG_0274

Nafis little sister, Nayla liked to play with the components (she refuse to be photographed :D)

IMG_0254

IMG_0266

Awa came with a new toys: Arduino Parallax 😀

IMG_0256

IMG_0284//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Awa was given a task to create a radar with ultrasonic and microservo and he started with this one 🙂

IMG_0257 IMG_0258

Awa is fully supported by mom and sister 🙂

IMG_0264

IMG_0261

And Clarence joined in 😀

IMG_0315

These two have their own connections

IMG_0314

making a great team 😀

IMG_0316

Clarence started to tinker with Parallax code 🙂 He was previously given a task to process data from sonar reading and display it to a TFT screen

IMG_0317

Reza was doing the same thing as Nafis but he did it differently: he puts one component at a time and tests it one by one

IMG_0259

IMG_0282

Reza is one very focus and determined kid 🙂

IMG_0318

He kept trying

IMG_0319

IMG_0322

And the time’s up when he was almost finished. The buzzer won’t stop beeping 😀 Next time he has to modify the code so the buzzer will only beep when the counter reaches some certain number 🙂

IMG_0299

Capt. Awa on duty 😀 Blurred pics because he moved so fast! 😀

IMG_0324

Thanks so much Capt. Awa :* ❤

IMG_0325

See you next week 🙂

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 14 Oct 2017

Standard

Our open topic class this Saturday 🙂

IMG_9777

Our newcomer, Ioan 🙂 Ioan joined our mid-year coding camp and now joining regular class 🙂 Welcome Ioan 🙂

IMG_9728

Capt. Azriel was assigned to assist Ioan

IMG_9729

IMG_9734

Ioan reopened his last GameMaker projects and re-learned how to create games 🙂

IMG_9735

He had learnt to create Agario too 🙂

IMG_9736

He looked happy to be back 🙂

IMG_9737

Ioan added new sprites and adding more features to his games

IMG_9743

IMG_9754

 

IMG_9757

Welcome back Nanin (after a few weeks) 🙂

IMG_9730

Nanin was determined to finish her game from the last class

IMG_9740

IMG_9760

The game is to pick out which one is a pet animal

IMG_9742

IMG_9751

Nanin spent lots of time to choose pictures and edit them

IMG_9753

The game is quite interesting: you will get score and move to the next level when you choose the right picture, and will go back to previous level if you pick the wrong one 🙂

IMG_9755

That’s why Nanin had lots of objects and rooms for levels 🙂 Lots of work 🙂

IMG_9767

IMG_9794

Adin (left) started to learn GameMaker, and Captain on duty for GameMaker was Captain Azriel (right)

IMG_9741

IMG_9752

IMG_9758

starting with creating sprites

IMG_9747

IMG_9748

then Adin created his first game 🙂

IMG_9766

he added more rooms with different levels of difficulty

IMG_9795

IMG_9801

IMG_9813

Then Adin was given the next task to create another game: Race Car 🙂

IMG_9823

IMG_9745

IMG_9746

Ain (left) had finished all the homework of creating apps with Thunkable

IMG_9750

So he was given another challenge

IMG_9756

He created an app to convert from text to voice, and he had to add a button to clear the textfield and he did 🙂

IMG_9762

Ain and Capt. Faris then added more languages

IMG_9769

IMG_9798

The code:

IMG_9770

It worked nicely 🙂

IMG_9775

IMG_9776

Vian (right), Ain (middle) and Capt. Faris (left) made a great team 🙂 They working together on Ain’s app and Vian’s game 🙂

IMG_9768

Vian created a new game, fully improved with lots of new techniques, thanks to Ain 🙂

IMG_9771

See how Vian’s game had been improved to a totally higher level when he got support from game making experts 🙂

IMG_9782

Capt. Faris tested Ain’s game

IMG_9787

And then they applied it to Vian’s

IMG_9793

Vian got lots of ideas and feedback from Ain and Capt. Faris yaaay, what could be more fun than creating games as a team 😉

IMG_9797

The final look of Vian’s game 🙂

IMG_9817

IMG_9833

IMG_9818

IMG_9834

IMG_9835

Tyo was ready for a new project: modifying a chat app in Java 🙂

IMG_9783

First we made sure the server and client work

IMG_9789

IMG_9796

IMG_9790

And the we decided to add some encryption to the text, and will be decrypted when it is accepted

IMG_9800 2

The encryption worked

IMG_9814

The code

IMG_9815

then we added decryption

IMG_9837

got some errors after adding decryption, but later Capt. Faris solved it

IMG_9838

This little one was back 🙂 Hello Adit 🙂

IMG_9788

Adit continued his Intro to Programming lessons from Blockly Games

IMG_9799

He was doing well with Puzzle and Maze

IMG_9811

And then moved on to Bird

IMG_9812

Had reached level 6 and will continue it next week 🙂

IMG_9842 2

Sabrina continued her lesson in Web Programming

IMG_9791

She learned more complicated design with more difficult layout

IMG_9792

IMG_9816

She had to go through lots of lines and debugging became a lot harder 🙂

IMG_9836

Jundy had several projects in Java running

IMG_9819

This one is a program to guess someone’s birthday using some algorithm

IMG_9803 IMG_9804

Jundy likes to discuss his work with Faris 🙂

IMG_9808

He showed us how to modify some files encrypted from XBox 🙂

IMG_9809

IMG_9810

While on the other side of the room, Ain’s mom did an awesome activity 🙂

IMG_9830

Very neat! 🙂

IMG_9831

This tool has never seen in the class before 🙂

IMG_9832

Another different activity in the class: captain discussions about writing 😀

IMG_9802

Will be reporting more interesting things happening in our class next week! 😉

 

 

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 14 Oct 2017

Standard

Hello hello! We are reporting our Saturday regular kids coding class 🙂

IMG_9727

IMG_9744

IMG_9780

Cinta spent two sessions working on PCB design and simulation using Proteus 🙂

IMG_9733

She was very excited 🙂

IMG_9761

IMG_9807

Cinta started with resistors, buttons and LED’s

IMG_9731

IMG_9732

Proteus can be connected to Arduino IDE

IMG_9824

Then Cinta added more and more components to her design 🙂

IMG_9806

An awesome way to simulate 🙂 Next lesson Cinta will be given task to simulate a Tic Tac Toe on Arduino 😉

IMG_9839

Helloooo Ruben was back 🙂

IMG_9738

This was where we left: creating and ultrasonic counter 🙂

IMG_9739

Capt. Faris helped Ruben with the code

IMG_9759

IMG_9749//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

And after several debugging, installing, and testing, it worked 🙂

IMG_9763

IMG_9764

And then Ruben was given this: adding buzzer and lamp to the previous one 🙂 So that when the counter reaches certain number, the buzzer will be active and so will the LED 🙂

IMG_9765

IMG_9774

IMG_9779

IMG_9784

Ruben likes to assemble things 🙂

IMG_9785

The LED worked but not yet the buzzer 🙂

IMG_9820

Will work on it next week 😉

IMG_9829

Koosha had a new project 🙂

IMG_9772

First he collected the components and the tools

IMG_9773

IMG_9778

Including this light to give better light

IMG_9781

Koosha prepared lots of breadboards, buttons and RGB LEDs

IMG_9786

IMG_9805

He wouldn’t tell what he was doing 😀

IMG_9821

We had to make lots of guess

IMG_9822

IMG_9825

Until…

IMG_9826

Koosha was working on a Tic Tac Toe on Arduino 🙂

IMG_9827

IMG_9828

Excellent idea! 🙂

IMG_9840

He still has to add more resistors and wires and also the coding, and we will continue working on it next week 🙂

IMG_9841
