Koosha came with his Safe Box project

IMG_6449

IMG_6462

It will open if you enter the correct password. After 3 failed attempts it will beep 😀

IMG_6446

The locking system uses a micro servo 🙂 Very creative 🙂

IMG_6447 IMG_6448

Koosh modified the code so that after beeping the box will be ready to accept input again

IMG_6450

The inner view: looks like a mini CPU 😀

IMG_6453

IMG_6454

The mess 😀

Faris helped Cinta to install and test PyGame

Untitled

The code

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Cinta is aiming to create something like this 🙂

Untitled

Awa was given another project 🙂

Untitled

to connect Minecraft to Arduino

Untitled

we tried several ways but nothing worked

Untitled

Neither this one 😦 We’re going to figure it out next time

Untitled

Ain was given a task to collaborate with Awa. Ain should create the structures in Minecraft while Awa connect it to the hardware in the real world

Untitled

Too bad it didn’t work yet so Ain continued his projects in Minecraft by creating more complex structures using Red Stone

Untitled

Untitled

Vian was still so interested in Minecraft Command Block

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

A tool to create command blocks

Untitled

And we also had Danen 🙂

Untitled

continuing his next game, Racing Car 🙂

Untitled

Under the supervision of Capt. Azriel (blue jacket)

Untitled

Untitled

The game is almost done 🙂 Danen will finish it next week 🙂

Untitled

Nafis was really busy doing a project for school: running text on a LCD

Untitled

Capt. Azriel made sure he type every single line, because you had to type to code 😀

Untitled

Al’s TLauncher needed to be updated so it took a while before he can start. Al learned more about looping and how to add different blocks in different colors in Minecraft with JavaScript

Untitled

Ozan was still debugging his work, using Nafis’ code just to find out if it work

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Capt. Faris continued our TensorFlow research

Untitled

While also helping other kids

Untitled

and exchanging ideas with Jundy 🙂

So much ideas and collaboration today 🙂 Can’t wait until next week 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 2 Dec 2017

Standard

Hello hello!

IMG_3343

Today we had three kids working on Arduino/ESPectro 🙂

Yes, Capt. Awa and his toolbox is back 😀

IMG_3345

IMG_3344

IMG_3349//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Awa was planning to work on his radar project 🙂

IMG_3346

IMG_3352

While Ozan needed to install libraries and drivers for ESPectro because he was using different laptop 🙂 But he was working on ultrasonic with buzzer and light before attaching it to LCD

IMG_3389//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

The code

IMG_3356

IMG_3366//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Nafis was doing the same thing like Ozan was doing: making ultrasonic works with LED and buzzer and then attach the LCD

IMG_3362

IMG_3358//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Nafis had some problem: his computer wouldn’t detect the port and we still hadn’t figured it out until the end of the class and we had to work on it next week 🙂

IMG_3367

Awa got help from his mom and dad 🙂 A very nice family teamwork 🙂

IMG_3375

IMG_3376IMG_3382

IMG_3404 IMG_3406

And finally the servo worked 😀

IMG_3405

As a dedicated captain, Awa spared sometime to fix broken cables 🙂

IMG_3408

So proud and happy to have a Captain like this, thanks Capt. Awa 🙂 ❤

IMG_3409

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 4 Nov 2017

Standard

Hello Saturday 🙂 Always looking forward to see kids coding in our class 🙂

Morning prep 🙂

IMG_1170

IMG_1171

Ozan continued working on adding buzzer to his ultrasonic counter

IMG_1174 IMG_1179

Ozan had to check simple buzzer code to be added to the new code

IMG_1181 2

IMG_1182 2

Took a lot of effort because the same problem occur: the ultrasonic counter doesn’t work with buzzer added

IMG_1191

Nafis was back 😀 He’s doing the same project as Ozan and Reza

IMG_1183

And Nafis agree to start it all over again and add the components one by one, using ESPectro 🙂

IMG_1186

Reza helped to make Nafis’ work

IMG_1190

And after the ESPectro shut down for several times due to wrong polarity, it finally worked 😀 but not yet with buzzer and LED 🙂

IMG_1197

The most mysterious thing is that Reza’s wouldn’t work

IMG_1180

It took Reza hours to debug

IMG_1184 2

He changes the components to find the problem

IMG_1218

Still didn’t work, so we decide to take Ozan’s to be tested on Reza’s code

IMG_1192

And yes it worked 😀 So we combined Reza’s code with Ozan’s board and it worked well 😀

IMG_1229

We’re still curious to find out why Reza’s didn’t work (but at least he has a code that worked well). Reza is a very persistence kid. Won’t stop until it’s done 🙂 Now to buzzer will beep when the count reaches 20 🙂

IMG_1239

Next week we will add LED to it 🙂

IMG_1240

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 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 23 Sep 2017

Standard

Today we picked up where we left last week: making a micro servo works 🙂

IMG_8522

There were on only two kids working on Arduino/ESPectro Programming 🙂 This is Ozan

IMG_8502

He had successfully made micro servo works, and ready to add an ultrasonic sensor to activate the micro servo 🙂

IMG_8516

Nafis was working on the same thing

IMG_8519

IMG_8517

IMG_8509

IMG_8539

He added an ultrasonic to activate the micro servo and worked 😉

IMG_8538

Next week we will explore more things, and help the other kids to catch up 🙂

 

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 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 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! 🙂
