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 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 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 – 5 Days Kids Coding Crash Course – Day #5 – 28 Aug 2017

Standard

The last day of % Days Kids Coding Crash Course on Intro to Programming and Creating Games 🙂

IMG_6655

At this stage, Ghazaska has learned skills to improve his game

IMG_6656

He keeps adding more features

IMG_6657

And make improvements, including to the graphics of the sprites

IMG_6658

IMG_6660

IMG_6661 IMG_6662

IMG_6667

IMG_6669

IMG_6670

The game now have lots of levels

IMG_6663

that offers unexpected challenges 😀

IMG_6664

IMG_6666

IMG_6668

It takes some daydreaming to start a new game 🙂 *it is hard sometimes to move on from one creation to another 😀

IMG_6672

The next one is BreakOut Game

IMG_6671

And Ghazaska doesn’t want anything on his game to look similar to the original game 😀

IMG_6673

The game looks so interesting 😀

IMG_6674

It’s amazing how creative kids can be if we give them the skill and some space to improvise 🙂

IMG_6675

Now you can explore many things with what you have learned in 5 days Ghazaska 🙂 See you again 🙂

ProCodeCG – 5 Days Kids Coding Crash Course – Day #4 – 21 Aug 2017

Standard

The fourth day! 🙂 We add more things to the maze game *in coding/game making, once you start you cannot stop 😀

IMG_6192

Ghazaska keeps adding levels

IMG_6193

and details, and complexity 😀

IMG_6194 IMG_6195

When he gets tired, he will walk around the room to loosen up the muscles 😀

IMG_6199

And then started to create a new game 🙂 In this game we will learn different techniques

IMG_6200

like following objects and set up the horizontal and vertical borders because the background is moving

IMG_6201 IMG_6202

This is supposed to be a race, so we’re going to need another dolphin to start it 😉

IMG_6203

We’re going to create another game on the next lesson 😉

ProCodeCG – 5 Days Kids Coding Crash Course – Day #3 – 16 Aug 2017

Day #2 🙂 Ghazaska Mom was there all the time doing paperworks while the kids learned more about programming 🙂

IMG_5247

Ready to learn! 🙂

IMG_5248

Today we learn and practice more about programming logic

IMG_5249

so that he will get used to solve problems with sequences, looping, conditionals 🙂

IMG_5250

adding more complexity with x and y axis plus direction 🙂

IMG_5251

Ghazaska don’t give up easily. But he needs to take a break once in a while, just like other kids usually do: Minecraft / YouTube 🙂

IMG_5253

We will learn to create game on Day #3, but before creating our own games, we learn to do coding with games 🙂 CodeCombat 🙂

IMG_5254

Today Ghazaska learned some Python language 🙂

IMG_5255

He finished enough levels to be able to move to the next lesson, next week 😉

IMG_5256

Next week we will create our own games 🙂
