ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 16 Sep 2017

Standard

 

ProCodeCG Open Topics Class today 🙂

IMG_8058

IMG_8042

Emma is still working on AI for TicTacToe

IMG_8017

She is developing strategy to choose the best move

IMG_8050

There are still some bugs and she is going to fix the data structure and algorithm 🙂

IMG_8059

Clarence started to learn java and data structure 🙂

IMG_8021

He created a java program for monitoring graphics performance

IMG_8029

And his project is to parse a file and sort the content

IMG_8030. 

Based on certain number and name

IMG_8035 IMG_8036 2

The file, with comma as delimiters

IMG_8037

The parsing is done, now before sorting we need to convert the data from integer to string or vice versa

IMG_8039

Capt. Faris who is very proficient in Java comes to help

IMG_8043

IMG_8044

IMG_8045

and next is to sort 🙂

IMG_8074

Capt. Faris always has ways to solve things 🙂

IMG_8075

IMG_8076

While Cinta is back to creating apps 🙂

IMG_8038

She is creating a To Do List Application

IMG_8047

Altair starts to learn Python with CodeCombat 🙂

IMG_8041

Al seems to like learning to code this way 🙂

IMG_8048

IMG_8057

CodeCombat teaches kids logics and basic programming with a tool looking like a game 🙂

IMG_8061

There are missions to accomplish and kids have to write codes on the right window 🙂

IMG_8067

Altair helps Adit to solve the problems to finish the missions

IMG_8053

Adit is very good himself but sometimes he needs a little clue to keep on going

IMG_8056

A fun way to learn coding (Python) 😉

IMG_8060

Conquering challenge after challenge

IMG_8068

Tyo is still working on his temperature measurement application

IMG_8054

IMG_8051

It is working nicely now, converting both ways from Celcius to Fahrenheit

IMG_8063

We probably will improve the GUI to be make it possible to convert to and from more temperature units

IMG_8064

Capt. Faris helps Tyo to improve the code

IMG_8062

Faris added textfield listener so the code will automatically show the result on the other textbox when the user enter a number on one textbox

IMG_8070

 

Sabrina is back to learn web programming 🙂

IMG_8049

She has finished one stage

IMG_8065

and with the help of Capt. Faris has fixed some errors

IMG_8072

In a few weeks Sabrina will be ready to create his own web design with HTML, CSS and Javascript 😉

IMG_8073

Azriel learns different topic today

IMG_8052

He learns JavaScript with Crunchzilla Monster.

IMG_8066

Azriel learns about variables, looping and conditions. Next week Azriel will be learning JavaScript for Minecraft Modding 🙂

IMG_8069

While Capt. Faris is working on this research 😀

IMG_8046

IMG_8055

We’re going to develop many things using the result of Faris’ research 🙂 We’ll be reporting soon 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 16 Sep 2017

Standard

The class is ready 🙂

IMG_8013

Today we are ready to explore new component: micro servo 🙂 Nafis is ready 🙂 *notice the screwdriver and the breadboard on his forehead LOL

IMG_8019

Nafis is so excited to see how a micro servo work 🙂

IMG_8024

IMG_8025

Nafis hasn’t finished typing the code so we’re going to try it next week 😉

IMG_8034

While Rezky still needs some time to test his new LCD I2C (we replaced the previous one with a new one)

IMG_8014

the new one didn’t work so we give him the working one and going to claim this one with another replacement. So Rezky will start exploration next week 🙂

IMG_8023

Reza is back 🙂

IMG_8015

He has to catch up with several previous projects before he can start his new project 🙂

IMG_8020

Project for Reza today is Ultrasonic Counter 🙂

IMG_8040

He struggles with libraries and the schematic. Still have to work on it next week 🙂

IMG_8071

Cinta learns robotic at school, and apparently what she has learn in ProCodeCG classes turn out to be very useful 🙂

IMG_8016

The code Cinta developed to turn on a set of LEDs to light up in a certain pattern according to what we enter from serial monitor

IMG_8026

IMG_8027

Cinta still has the schematic on the breadboard

IMG_8028

These for LED’s will blink in a pattern defined from serial monitor

IMG_8031

IMG_8033

Awesome work, Cinta 🙂

IMG_8032

Next week we will do more projects and fix bugs and errors 🙂

IMG_8022

Glad to know that our class helps kids with their school 🙂

IMG_8018

We’ll be reporting again next 🙂

ProCodeCG Sensor Data Acquisition Training – 11 Sept 2017

Standard

Today we trained lecturers for Politeknik Negeri Pontianak on how to do data acquisition from current sensors 🙂

Class preparation

IMG_7660 IMG_7661

We split the team into two: hardware and software. The hardware team started to assemble the components

IMG_7662

while the software team installing the application and libraries

IMG_7663

IMG_7664 IMG_7665

IMG_7666

ESPectro basic testing: blink

IMG_7667

and neopixel animation

IMG_7668

Then we’re ready to connect ESPectro to the circuit and sensor

IMG_7670 IMG_7671

IMG_7672

We compared the circuit with the one that has been tested and verified

IMG_7673

IMG_7674

Still didn’t work

IMG_7675

It took lots of retrying, switching components and we tried every solution possible and think of every source of errors

IMG_7676

still didn’t work

IMG_7677

We just kept trying

IMG_7678 IMG_7679

and after we changed the resistors with metal film ones, it worked! 😀

IMG_7680

Current reading when the switch is on

IMG_7681

when off

IMG_7683

when on and off again

IMG_7682

The effort was worth it 🙂 We finally finished the training and ready to collect data for further research and analysis 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 9 Sept 2017

Standard

Hello!

IMG_7490

IMG_7500

This Saturday we had two newcomers 🙂 This one is Al 🙂

IMG_7461 2

Al learned intro to programming with Minecraft Hour of Code 🙂

IMG_7466

After he finished task one, Al continued to learn about procedures with LightBot 😉

IMG_7484

IMG_7495

Then he continued with Blockly Games 🙂 Lots of work today Al, well done 🙂

IMG_7516

The second newcomer is Adit 🙂

IMG_7494

Adit learned the same things Al did 🙂

IMG_7496

Adit was tutored by Capt. Faris 🙂

IMG_7504

Finished the first task

IMG_7506

and then move on to the next 🙂 Adit seemed so excited 🙂

IMG_7517

Emma was still working TicTacToe strategy

IMG_7464

The code generated some errors after Emma added a new function

IMG_7491

Well, with a code looking like this, we certainly need time to find out the problem 🙂

IMG_7475

Aidia started to create games 🙂 With the guide of Capt. Faris 🙂

IMG_7465

IMG_7488

Aidia already had ideas in mind about the game she was going to create 🙂

IMG_7469

Aidia was so excited to create her own sprites 🙂

IMG_7492

IMG_7493

Finally, Aidia’s first game 🙂

IMG_7497

She just couldn’t stop 😉

IMG_7498

Ain! He came with lots and LOTS of progress 🙂

IMG_7467

From all the tasks and challenges, he created this “Kresek Terbang” game 🙂

IMG_7471

The game is so neatly created and detail, using brilliant tricks and techniques

IMG_7472

Like usual, Ain never do anything less than excellent 🙂 Look at how many sprites and object he created 😀

IMG_7473

Ain also uses a very smart way to put objects in random while the screen moving to the left

IMG_7474

Ain gave lots of tricks and idea to Vian 🙂

IMG_7485

Vian was going to make what’s in his head happen 🙂

IMG_7486

IMG_7507

IMG_7508

Vian learned lots of new tricks to make his ideas happen 🙂 Well done Vian 🙂

IMG_7511

Vian also wanted to create his own logo 😀

IMG_7522

So we let him express his creativity for a whiel 😀

IMG_7523

Ajil’s game now working just fine 🙂 Last week we had the GameMaker kept hiccuping 😀

IMG_7499

Ajil tested all the game he had created

IMG_7509

IMG_7513

Making sure all is running smoothly 🙂 Next week Ajil will be ready to learn something new 🙂

IMG_7514

Tyo had a new idea for a new project 🙂

IMG_7501

He wanted to create a temperature converter 🙂

IMG_7520

Tyo is a very determined boy. He insisted to write his own code, line per line. He refused to copy paste examples from the internet 🙂  Tyo has a problem with casting this variable to integer

IMG_7527

Capt. Faris helped him out 🙂

IMG_7526

So this is going to be Tyo’s homework and we’ll see the progress next week 🙂

IMG_7533

Look at what Capt. Faris learned in the class while teaching 🙂

IMG_7489

Capt. Faris showed Capt. BR his ProCodeCG Attendance App with Face Recognition 😉

IMG_7521

Faris took my pics last week and let the code learn, and now it recognize my face 🙂

IMG_7529

IMG_7532

Not yet recognize Capt. BR

IMG_7530

Because the system has only learned Faris’ and my face, Capt. BR was identified as Faris 😀 Later Faris took pics of Capt. BR, feed it to the system, and it can recognize Capt. BR too 🙂 Awesome!

IMG_7531

Well, when Faris’ laptop goes like this, that means the class is over 🙂

IMG_7518

See you next week! 🙂

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 9 Sept 2017

Standard

Our Arduino/ESPectro Programming Class this morning 🙂

IMG_7459

Ozan was ready to modify automatic pedestrian traffic light with ultrasonic 🙂 We were going to add LCD to display information to pedestrian 🙂

IMG_7460

It worked 🙂

IMG_7478

The display will show the color of the traffic light:

red

IMG_7479

yellow

IMG_7481

green. Ozan had to change all the text into some info for pedestrian so they will know when to cross and how many times left 🙂

IMG_7482

Nafis

IMG_7462 2

and Rezky were working on the same project as Ozan

IMG_7463

These two like to work together

IMG_7468

helping each other finding bugs and make the schematics 🙂

IMG_7476

IMG_7503

and worked 🙂

IMG_7477

We just had Uben back! His usual laptop was in repair so he brought another one. We spent some time to install and setup everything 🙂

IMG_7487

Uben was told to create ultrasonic counter

 

IMG_7510

Uben likes to assemble things like this 🙂

IMG_7515

Too bad we didn’t had time to type in the code and compile it. Going to do it next week! 🙂

IMG_7519

Next week we will explore projects with micro servo! 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Kids – Open Topics – 2 Sep 2017

Standard

ProCodeCG Open Topics Kids Coding Class 🙂

These girls, Echa and Aidia arrived early 🙂

IMG_6963

IMG_7037

They’re ready to learn more about programming with Minecraft 🙂

IMG_6966

Echa and Aidia started to learn Minecraft Designer before they start coding with JavaScript on Spigot Server 🙂

IMG_7046

IMG_7047

Neila joined the group of Minecraft Modding with Echa and Aidia 🙂

IMG_7026

They logged in to the same Spigot Server so they can play and code together 🙂

IMG_7051

IMG_7035

IMG_7036

IMG_7053 2

Capt. Faris (grey jacket) helped the girls with starting up the server and logging in to it 🙂

IMG_7031

Ain! So excited to see the progress 🙂

IMG_6967

Ain has created an amazing game with nine levels 🙂

IMG_6977

The game is very well and carefully designed 🙂

IMG_6978

Each levels offers different challenges *that escalates in an unpredictable way 😀

IMG_6979

IMG_6980 IMG_6981

IMG_6982 IMG_6983

IMG_6984 IMG_6985

IMG_6986

IMG_6989

Ain has also created another game, a very detailed game with animations

IMG_6998

He creates LOTS of sprites

IMG_7001

and each sprite has LOTS of images for animations

IMG_7006

This one is totally a detailed and determined kid 🙂

IMG_7007

The game is about a watering can that can walk (while animating)

IMG_7003

and when it approaches the plant and water it, the plant will grow 🙂

IMG_7005

the code of how the plant changing sprite to give growing animation 🙂

IMG_7008

And after demoing those two awesome games, Ain created another one

IMG_7014

IMG_6993

He hasn’t explained how this game work

IMG_7023

because after Vian arrived, Ain was told to give ideas to Vian 😉

IMG_7040

so they teamed up to create games together 🙂

IMG_7048

IMG_7049

IMG_7041

IMG_7052

Emma was still working on the Tic-Tac-Toe project

IMG_6971 2

She was in the process of creating data structure and algorithm to make computer chooses the best possible move

IMG_7027

She developed some functions and started to list move possibilities

IMG_7028

the SPOTS variable shows the possible positions to move. The algorithm still choose the move closer to the upper left cell. Will be improved after the weighting process has been figured out.

IMG_7029

Capt. Faris on duty 🙂

IMG_6999

Very busy doing his research on ProCodeCG Attendance List with Face Recognition 🙂

IMG_7039

Faris was doing some training to his code

IMG_7032

So it will recognize his face and tell the system that he has logged in 🙂

IMG_7043

IMG_7044

The result of the matching process

IMG_7045

And then he started to train the code with different datasets so it will recognize different person 😉

IMG_7050

There are always so much things going on, and there will be more next week! 😉

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduno/ESPectro Programming – 2 Sep 2017

Standard

Hello Saturday Coding Class 🙂

IMG_6964

Today more kids coming to continue their projects 🙂

Koosha brings his elevator project to the class 🙂

IMG_6990

IMG_6969

It has seven segment to display the floor number plus buttons to select up/down and a button for sounds too 🙂

IMG_6972

A very cool prototype 🙂

IMG_6973 IMG_6974

He duct-taped and glue-gunned everything inside the box 😀

IMG_6975 IMG_6976

IMG_6997

Koosha tests every components one by one.

IMG_7009

He chooses resistors very carefully 🙂

IMG_7010

There is something wrong with the seven-segment, Mama Ren helps and it works 🙂 But then Koosha decides to use LCD instead 😀

IMG_7019

IMG_7020

IMG_7013

the LCD, the breadboard, and the arduino is glue-gunned to the box 😀

IMG_7055

We’re testing the LCD and there are still some errors

IMG_7056

so Koosha won’t go until it works 😀

IMG_7057

Rezky is ready to continue another project: Automatic Pedestrian Traffic Light with Ultrasonic

IMG_6970

IMG_6995

Nafis is going to do the some project too

IMG_6994

So Rezky and Nafis got paired up to do the project together 🙂

IMG_6991

They learn and work better this way 🙂

IMG_7011

IMG_7012

Both test their own schematic

IMG_7015

IMG_7016

and help each other to debug errors 🙂

IMG_7017

Nafis’ works

IMG_7021

So does Rezky’s

IMG_7022

Both works! 🙂 They’re given another task to add LCD and display “Pedestrian crossing” plus count down for next week 🙂

IMG_7030

It’s been a long time since the last time Ren came to the class 🙂 Welcome back Ren and Mama Ren 🙂

IMG_6992

Ren is working on what Rezky and Nafis are working

IMG_6996

IMG_7018

IMG_7034

But the code won’t compile with ESPectro. So next time probably we will just use Arduino until we figure out what is wrong 😦

IMG_7038

Mama Ren is a very dedicated teacher

IMG_7024

She does some grading while Ren is coding 😀 Nice family 😉 ❤

IMG_7033

There will be more interesting project for next week! 🙂
