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

Standard

This is what our Saturdays made of 🙂

Captains preparing the class 🙂 ProCodeCG doesn’t hire programmers. We raise them 🙂

These are (from left to right): Ain (going to start his first Captain duty on coding camp next week), Capt. Azriel, Tiga (Ain’s little brother) and Capt. Awa 🙂

IMG_4024

Thanks so much for preparing the class 🙂 :*

IMG_4023

Capt. Awa is in the middle of his project: building a radar system for navigation 🙂

IMG_3879

He was going to disassemble an AroX robot and took some parts of it for his project

IMG_3880

We’re going to use ultrasonic sensors and servo

IMG_3886

And some codes, of course

IMG_3898

Awa’s workplace 😀

IMG_3905

After watching some tutorials, we decided to disassembly a microservo and modify it to be able to rotate 360 degrees continously

IMG_3926

We had to cut something out of these gears

IMG_3928

and put them altogether again

IMG_3929

Well, this requires lots of patience and hard work 😉

IMG_3932

IMG_4018

IMG_4020

Ozan was still investigating why the ultrasonic counter wouldn’t work with LCD

IMG_3884

We’ve tried many configurations and codes

IMG_3888

Even changed the LCD because this one wouldn’t turn on

IMG_3887

There are days when things are so frustrating but we will keep working on it, yes Ozan? 😀

IMG_3900

Even if we have to start all over again from the beginning 😀

IMG_4021

The class

IMG_3901

And a little coding mom reunion 🙂

IMG_3919

It was such a perfect Saturday 🙂 Can’t wait to continue our research again next Saturday 🙂

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 🙂 ❤

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 18 Nov 2017

Standard

Hello! Today we only have Koosha working on Arduino/ESPectro Programming but with lots of progress 🙂

Koosha came with a new project in mind 😀

IMG_2267

He was working on an elevator project but today, apparently Koosha had something else in mind 😉

IMG_2268

He’s going to assembly this RFID stuff

IMG_2269 IMG_2273

The code

IMG_2284

The reading works

IMG_2288

Successfully read from rfid card and rfid tag

IMG_2289

IMG_2290

And then successfully write to the card and tag too 😉

IMG_2303

The code

IMG_2304

Then adding an LCD 🙂 Still not working properly but we’re working on it 🙂

IMG_2305

We’ll be reporting more progress next week 😉

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 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂
