ProCodeCG – Darul Hikam – Kids Coding Class – 12 April 2019

Standard

Our last class for this semester 😦 Hoping that the next semester there will be enough students to open the class again πŸ™‚ Today we tried to finish our end of the semester projects πŸ™‚

IMG_9433

Capt. Awa is leading the Basic Electronics team to create Smart Trash Bins πŸ˜‰

IMG_9437

Daffa has just got his Basic Electronics Toolkit

IMG_9423

Daffa is making his first LED project with Arsa watching πŸ˜€

IMG_9439

Yes, Daffa is definitely more interested in electronics than creating games πŸ˜€

IMG_9440

The first project done πŸ™‚

IMG_9451

Arsa is now working on the Game Project collaboration with Daffa alone πŸ™‚

IMG_9424

But he said it is okay πŸ˜€

IMG_9425

Danen helped Daffa getting started with the kit πŸ™‚ Danen likes teaching and shares what he knows πŸ™‚ He’s very excited showing Daffa how things work and how to fix when there are things not working out πŸ™‚

IMG_9426

Hanif’s Flappy Bird project has enter the next phase

IMG_9427

We had several versions of the game to see which one working the best

IMG_9435

We’re trying every techniques and possibilities to make the game works as expected

 

IMG_9442

IMG_9449

We checked and modified every setting and finally decide we had to create another version. From scratch πŸ™‚ But at the end of this semester Hanif has achieved lots of progress.

IMG_9457

Isma’ill is now has a trash bin to be converted into a smart one πŸ™‚

IMG_9428 IMG_9431

Testing the ultrasonic sensor and the micro servo

IMG_9441

the electronics working nicely

IMG_9445

Faisal is also working on the trash bin

IMG_9429

but he had to take a break before continuing πŸ˜€

IMG_9444

Capt. Bullitt had to make sure everyone is doing their jobs πŸ™‚

IMG_9430

The trash bin is a little bit too big and we’re thinking hard to figure out how that small micro servo can open it πŸ˜€

IMG_9447

Khalis gives his support and sympathy to Capt. Bullitt who is almost giving up attaching the micro servo to the bin πŸ˜€

IMG_9453

Khalis is going to finish the game today πŸ™‚

IMG_9432

Khalis works very hard like usual, he has completed the most important features in the game πŸ™‚

IMG_9436 IMG_9438

Next semester Khalis can create new games, or improve this one. The most important thing is, Khalis had learned so much all the way πŸ™‚

IMG_9455

Until the next semester πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 6 April 2019

Standard

Saturday’s Coding Squad πŸ™‚

IMG_9014

Capt. Faris is given a project to detect hoax and real news

IMG_8976

plus investigating the neural nets architecture being used by our machine learning platform

IMG_9039

The codes

IMG_9040 IMG_9052

Hafiz’s Plant vs Zombie Game is getting better and better πŸ˜‰

IMG_8977 IMG_8981

we need to add lots codes to add more features to the game

IMG_8990 IMG_8991

IMG_8993 IMG_8994

Now the game has the randomly generated points (the yellow dots)

IMG_8998 IMG_8999

it also now has flowers that can shoot peas πŸ™‚

IMG_9033

Hafiz has to repeat the process for lots of sprites

IMG_9035

and then define scoring and rules of the game. Lots of hard work but fun πŸ™‚

IMG_9053

Sulaiman is going to choose his own project today πŸ™‚

IMG_8978

We borrowed Aidia’s book to find a suitable project for Sul πŸ™‚

IMG_9004 IMG_9003

IMG_9006 IMG_9010

IMG_9012

After a while, Sul finally chose this one πŸ™‚

IMG_9013

The result πŸ™‚

IMG_9026

and then Sul started to create running text structure like Capt. Awa was doing earlier

IMG_9055

Syadad started creating games today πŸ™‚

IMG_8979

The first sprite

IMG_8986 IMG_8987

Object movement test

IMG_8989

The other sprite to be eaten by the first sprite

IMG_9005

room setup

IMG_9017

Yayyy, Syadad’s first game πŸ™‚

IMG_9037

more object arrangements and background

IMG_9042

We will add scoring in the next class πŸ˜‰

IMG_9050

Aidia is improving her sophisticated locker system design πŸ˜‰

IMG_8980 IMG_8984

Aidia added more structures to her world

IMG_8985 IMG_8988

She brought some books for references

IMG_9009

So whatever Aidia created in her world is pure her creativity; she combined lots of ideas into unique structures

IMG_9028

IMG_9034

Capt. Awa asked for a challenge and so the challenge was creating a running text structure

IMG_8983

No one has ever created this before because of it’s tricky nature. By using piston the furthest shift is 7 blocks

IMG_8995

But Awa wouldn’t be a Captain if he wasn’t qualified πŸ™‚ He brilliantly overcome the limitation by making it circular πŸ™‚

IMG_9020

The structure. Unbelievable. Impressive. Outstanding. πŸ™‚

IMG_9022

Awa tried several structures before finally found the correct one

IMG_9023

Minecraft can be used to learn many things including logic, problem solving, creativity, including mechanical structures and electronics logics πŸ˜‰

IMG_9025

Experimenting with the machine

IMG_9032

adding shield to make it waterproof πŸ˜€

IMG_9054

Andra is still going through the intro to coding πŸ™‚

IMG_9008

Today he learned about function through pattern

IMG_9018

IMG_9019 IMG_9029

And then moved on to more challenges. Next week Andra will learn visual coding with actual coding scripts πŸ™‚

we’re going to implement different methods in spawning these pipes

IMG_8902

Arsa visited Hanif offering himself to test the game πŸ˜€

IMG_8907

IMG_8912

IMG_8919

We are definitely testing every step and make sure we didn’t miss any configurations that work well in the previous version

IMG_8930

Andra is also preparing the project for the end of the semester

IMG_8880

Andra will modify and upgrade his game

IMG_8908

IMG_8917

IMG_8918

IMG_8816

Abil’s game now is a multiplayer game πŸ™‚ We’re still figuring out how to display two different scores πŸ˜‰

IMG_8815

Kinan has great plans too

IMG_8802

Kinan made a very detailed and nice background

IMG_8806 IMG_8807

and going to make the characters being able to jump from one world to another πŸ™‚

IMG_8809 IMG_8812

She added more characters and interactions, making the game more complex but that’s good πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 30 Mar 2019

Standard

Coding crowd this Saturday πŸ˜‰

IMG_8533

IMG_8555 IMG_8556

IMG_8557

Hafiz is working on Plant vs Zombie Game. It is quite difficult and takes more time to develop than the previous ones

IMG_8509

Preparing the sprites

IMG_8505

the assets

IMG_8506

each sprite is carefully designed πŸ™‚

IMG_8528 IMG_8534

the background

IMG_8535

IMG_8554

Testing plant placing

IMG_8560

The objects are now placed neatly in the room πŸ˜‰

IMG_8561

More objects added πŸ™‚ Nice! Next is to add scoring and spawning the zombie randomly πŸ™‚

IMG_8587

Sam’s work is getting harder and harder to do since the target is to release this app to PlayStore

IMG_8507

We need to think how to manage the screens and the size of the app

IMG_8520

We are discussing the screen flow and the best UI/UX design especially to show the user the progress of memorizing the Juz’Amma

IMG_8523

we just realized that Sam’s app has too many screens and that makes the app size grows. The more the screens, the harder it is to manage

IMG_8524

Capt. Faris had his own app developed with Android Studio, and he shared his architecture to us

IMG_8529

it is time to throw in database πŸ˜‰ and the trick is to create limited screen, and reload the view from the database

IMG_8530

so Sam has to learn about accessing TinyDB πŸ˜€

IMG_8545

It leaves him like this LOL

IMG_8583

Fadhlan, stop eating the candy and start to work! πŸ˜€

IMG_8508

We have to work on this: testing the right and left motor plus the controller, and make it navigates

IMG_8519

Working hardddd there you go πŸ˜€

IMG_8536

IMG_8537

Capt. Awa helped us testing the robot *and ran away when the robot was activated because it refuse to avoid obstacles LOL but at least we know that button, LED, buzzer, wheels, are working and we just need to check the ultrasonic before adding compass and bluetooth module πŸ˜€

IMG_8569

Capt. Faris and his research πŸ˜€ He was given a challenge to learn how to prevent shoplifting with camera object detection

IMG_8510 IMG_8525 IMG_8546

Capt. Awa, brought new toys!

IMG_8511

The new stuffs have the same size as a coin!

IMG_8512

wowww, modules for TinyDuino

IMG_8513

IMG_8514

IMG_8515

But we still couldn’t get these little mates to work :(( We suspected the USB-UART driver or probably the port

IMG_8526

So Capt. Awa explored another thing: basic electronics simulation

IMG_8542 IMG_8550

IMG_8553 IMG_8558

and then helping us with the robot

IMG_8570

the robot was going in circles so Capt. Awa helped us switching the polarity πŸ™‚

IMG_8572

Testing is done for today (too many things being hit by the robot LOL)

IMG_8574

Badi’s website is ready to be uploaded to public πŸ™‚ Today Badi will buy domain and hosting and upload it

IMG_8521

We’re searching for the best option, and after we got one, Pavilion19 will have a website πŸ™‚

IMG_8540

Aidia is so excited about her Minecraft Project today πŸ™‚

IMG_8517

IMG_8564

IMG_8566

Look at this: she created a locker system below a beautiful building she designed πŸ˜‰ How nice!!!

IMG_8584

Inside the locker corridor πŸ™‚ Next week we’re going to add button to get a specific locker sent to a specific person πŸ˜‰

IMG_8585

Al is going to make another animation, yaaay πŸ™‚

IMG_8522 IMG_8527

He’s getting better πŸ™‚

IMG_8541

Al finds references on the internet to get more ideas

IMG_8551

And he created animation for educational purposes like this one πŸ™‚

IMG_8552

IMG_8589

We have a newcomer: welcome Andra πŸ™‚

IMG_8543

Like the others, Andra had to go through the intro to programming

IMG_8549 IMG_8563

One challenge down

IMG_8565

Now another one, and Andra can do it very quickly with lots of excitement πŸ™‚

IMG_8567

IMG_8580

Yogi came with the same problem from the last class: displaying a score that follows the object πŸ™‚

IMG_8547

This one worked for Game Maker Studio 2 but not with version 1 so we tried so many ways and still couldn’t figure it out. Don’t worry Yogi we’ll work it out

IMG_6283

Syadad is now ready for a code combat πŸ˜‰

IMG_8562

Syadad is very excited with this challenge, especially because now he has a friend: Andra πŸ™‚
