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

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 7 Oct 2017

IMG_9364

Capt. Faris, like usual was very busy with the research 🙂

IMG_9339

IMG_9343

Faris started to train his AI to recognize some logo

IMG_9360

Ain was working on creating apps

IMG_9340

IMG_9346

Ain created an login app

IMG_9347

IMG_9366

IMG_9350

There was still some errors, Ain will fix it at home 🙂

IMG_9355

IMG_9341IMG_9349

Next week he certainly can move to the next level 😉

IMG_9356 IMG_9357

IMG_9358

IMG_9365

IMG_9371

Capt. Faris was helping Azriel to start Spigot Server

IMG_9348

IMG_9367

So Azriel can code things like this in Minecraft 😉

IMG_9363

The first floor of Azriel’s skyscraper

IMG_9368

Yes! Azriel first skycraper in Minecraft, created with JavaScript 😉

IMG_9369

Too bad we didn’t take a picture of Tyo, who was celebrating his birthday and working on a very cool project: reading weather data to be processed with Java. But we had problems with accessing the APIs and libraries so Tyo decided to create chatting apps in Java next week! 🙂

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 7 Oct 2017

Standard

Our regular Saturday 🙂

IMG_9337

Everybody has (very serious) things to do 🙂

IMG_9344

Reza was ready to explore microservo with buttons 🙂

IMG_9338

IMG_9342

 

Reza was assigned to code the Arduino to control microservo with 2 buttons

IMG_9351

And after lots of effort and debugging

IMG_9361

… he finished the assignment. One button will turn the micro servo clockwise and the other one will turn the micro servo counter-clockwise 😉

IMG_9352

Koosha was still working on the elevator project 🙂

IMG_9354

He had lots of ideas to be implemented

IMG_9353

IMG_9359

We will use this SD-card module to store sounds for the elevator. We were going to do the read and write test but just realized that Koosha didn’t bring the memory card 😀

IMG_9362

So we tested the LCD 🙂

IMG_9370

Yeah, looking good 🙂

IMG_9372

This is going to be an awesome elevator 😉

IMG_9373

We will do more projects next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Kids – Open Topics – 30 Sep 2017

Standard

Today we have kids learn creating games, java programming, web programming and we do some research too 🙂

IMG_8937

IMG_8957

Nanin is back to continue her matching games in GameMaker

IMG_8927

Nanin is creating a game to choose which ones are pets and which ones are wild animals

IMG_8928

So she had to collect animal pictures

IMG_8930

And resize it to fit in the size of the sprite 🙂 (Capt. Faris showed Nanin how to resize a picture)

IMG_8943

Tyo rode a bicycle to the class 🙂

IMG_8942

Tyo had finished his temperature conversion project 🙂

IMG_8945

IMG_8963

The code can convert temperature in Celcius, Reamur, Kelvin and Fahrenheit 🙂

IMG_8964

Impressive, Tyo 🙂

IMG_8965

IMG_8967

IMG_8968

Tyo moved on to the next project: collecting weather data and save it to a file to be presented in an app in Java 🙂

IMG_8972

Sabrina finished HTML session last week and this week she learned CSS

IMG_8949

Next week she will start to learn some JavaScript or more advanced HTML and CSS 😉

IMG_8973

She also learned how to create .html that connects to a .css file 🙂 Now she knows how to create a website 🙂

 

IMG_8977

After two sessions of Intro to Programming, now Altair is ready to learn to create games with GameMaker 🙂

IMG_8962

Altair has learned how to create sprites, objects, rooms and display scores

IMG_8960

IMG_8974

This little yellow guy will get score each time he eats the red apples

IMG_8975 IMG_8976

Altair proudly shows his first game to his dad 😉

IMG_8984

Great work, Al 😉

IMG_8985

Vian (yellow shirt) discussed with Jundy

IMG_8980

and create another awesome creature for the sprite

IMG_8969

And Capt. Faris, as usual, is working on a research while also helping other kids 🙂

IMG_8918

IMG_8932

IMG_8961

Will be back with more progress and updates next week 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 30 Sep 2017

Standard

Our Arduino/ESPectro Programming Class today 🙂

IMG_8917

IMG_8921

Reza was getting ready to unbox his motor servo and try it for the first time

IMG_8919

The first task is to make it work

IMG_8923

the next is to activate the motor with ultrasonic

IMG_8933

And after lots of effort and debugging, it worked 😉 Nice work Reza 🙂

IMG_8959

Hyeaaay, Capt. Awa is baaack 🙂

IMG_8924

He brought new stuff: a fancy Arduino 101

IMG_8929

and a stepper 🙂

IMG_8925

Awa had lots of things in mind for the next project 🙂

IMG_8926

Awa is going to add timer to his micro servo

IMG_8931

and then create a radar with ultrasonic sensor 🙂

IMG_8956

Awa asked to be taught how to use dan read an avometer 🙂

IMG_8978

While Koosha looking around the big toolbox, Awa measure everything with the avometer 😀 Electronics and components is more interesting to this kids more than candies 😀

IMG_8979

Ozan was testing his ultrasonic motor servo

IMG_8920

Didn’t work

IMG_8934

so we asked Awa for help

IMG_8935

The ultrasonic alone was working

IMG_8936

The motor servo alone was working. But combined, it didn’t work

IMG_8938

Took some time to figure it out and we decided to change ultrasonic with button. Still didn’t work and Ozan will try again next week

IMG_8940

Vian started to work with motor servo too 🙂

IMG_8939

He was intended to create some robot crawler or something 😀

IMG_8941

While Koosha got back to his project: creating an elevator

IMG_8946 IMG_8947

IMG_8948

Koosha’s project drew Awa and Vian’s attention 🙂

IMG_8950

IMG_8951 IMG_8952

Koosha even created an animation to show how the elevator should work

IMG_8953 IMG_8954

Pretty awesome 🙂

IMG_8955

Koosha wants the elevator to play some music

IMG_8958

So we were working on making a memory board with some sounds in it to connect to Arduino and make sure the file has been read and then connect it to the speakers

IMG_8966

While Cinta was still so into her project

IMG_8981

the cryptic and complicated one, which will play different song when different button is pressed 🙂

IMG_8982

And here’s some interesting scenes about friendship and joy after the class 😉

IMG_8986 IMG_8987

IMG_8988 IMG_8989

See you next week 😉
