ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Basic Electronics – 19 June 2019

Standard

It’s been a while since the last class and we have to revisit again what we did the last class πŸ˜€

IMG_3944

IMG_3946

the first one is to check the bluetooth connection

IMG_3947

IMG_3948

successful

IMG_3949

and then testing speech to text app

IMG_3950 IMG_3951

works fine

IMG_3952

and then working on connecting speech to text to Arduino

IMG_3953

still not working

IMG_3955

no sign of text on the serial monitor 😦 we need to work more on this bluetooth connection (same thing happened with the robot project so we really need to figure this out)

Our project today is to create a speech recognition app in Thunkable to give command to Arduino

IMG_2278

IMG_2277

The speech to text app

IMG_2279

the code

IMG_2282 IMG_2283

now connecting to bluetooth

IMG_2284 IMG_2286

successfully paired

IMG_2287

and now combining the speech to text code with the code to connect to bluetooth

IMG_2288

the arduino and bluetooth

IMG_2291

we did some research about how to control Arduino with Thunkable

IMG_2292

making the code

IMG_2294

IMG_2295

We still cannot connect the app to bluetooth, will figure this out in the next class πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 15 Juni 2019

Standard

This is what we do on holiday πŸ™‚

Aidia was ready to continue her color sorting project with Arduino πŸ™‚

IMG_3533 IMG_3542

Aidia typed hundreds lines of code πŸ™‚

IMG_3559 IMG_3547

and then we followed this schematic

IMG_3573

IMG_3578

and tested it

IMG_3579

IMG_3580

the code had been uploaded but the sensor reading didn’t seem right. also one micro servo is not working. we had to do debugging next week πŸ™‚

IMG_3582

Aidia deserved a break by making some animations after all the hard work today πŸ™‚

IMG_3576

IMG_3574

Edo spent 3 hours struggling with installing Kali Linux on Virtual Box

IMG_3532 IMG_3531

it

IMG_3575

took

IMG_3562

a long time

IMG_3540

and we did this three times already πŸ˜€

IMG_3539

but it is ok, a good way to learn πŸ˜€

IMG_3537

next week Edo is expected to have Kali Linux installed πŸ˜€

IMG_3536

today we made it into the login window but the password didn’t work so we had to start all over again with setting up password πŸ˜€

IMG_3535

Capt. Faris and his computer vision research πŸ˜€

IMG_3548

IMG_3571 IMG_3567

Al was busy with two projects today πŸ™‚

IMG_3541

the first one is the machine learning project for recommending places for tourists πŸ™‚

IMG_3551

IMG_3557

 

IMG_3554 IMG_3553

the next is to make a chameleon changes colors based on what it “see” πŸ˜‰

IMG_3544

IMG_3550

we’re still working in entering the datasets πŸ™‚

IMG_3563

hopefully this project will be finished next week πŸ™‚

IMG_2335

a brand new shiny robot πŸ™‚

IMG_2334

very neat! πŸ˜‰

IMG_2333

Fadhlan is going to test the power source for the robot today

IMG_2337

IMG_2363

IMG_2393

We are testing several codes to the robot

IMG_2362

IMG_2398

The robot now can send ultrasonic readings via bluetooth to this laptop

IMG_2399

now testing ultrasonic reading

IMG_2410

make sure the data format is correct

IMG_2411

and create a map based on the data

IMG_2412

the robot works well except one thing: we need less voltage because we have just crashed the robot because it moved to fast πŸ˜€

IMG_2415

Sam has lists to do in finishing the app

IMG_2336

after uploading all the asset to the app, Sam has to create logo for the app πŸ˜€

IMG_2347

The code is A LOT πŸ™‚ Hang on Sam, we’re going to finish this very soon πŸ™‚

IMG_2349

Al is going to finish 2 projects today

IMG_2346

One is the alien language project

IMG_2350

the code will make the green monster follow what we say πŸ™‚

IMG_2351

when we say left, it will move to the left and vice versa πŸ˜‰

IMG_2352

the next project

IMG_2402

IMG_2416

is to give tourists info about recommended places πŸ™‚ Awesome Al πŸ™‚

IMG_2417

Capt. Awa’s plan today is to test the TinyDuino

IMG_2354

while also teaching πŸ™‚

IMG_2364

This is the TinyDuino with LED module and battery module

IMG_2388

The TinyDuino is in the middle. On the left side is the battery module and on the right side is the LED module

IMG_2389

Capt. Awa is discussing TinyDuino with Koosha to figure out how it works

IMG_2414

Wibi is making a lot of progress today πŸ™‚

IMG_2355

He’s given a task to create as many structures as he can in Minecraft πŸ™‚

IMG_2382

like connecting hallway

IMG_2384

basement

IMG_2391 IMG_2392

secret passage

IMG_2395

a glass roof for the basement

IMG_2396

adding door for entering the house properly πŸ™‚

IMG_2408

Ryan is also learning the same things as Wibi

IMG_2356

only Ryan will prefer more experiments with structures πŸ˜€

IMG_2358

IMG_2383

IMG_2390 IMG_2359

Capt. Faris

IMG_2360

and his recent research

IMG_2377

a super cutting edge technology

IMG_2378

an algorithm that can make living portraits from just ONE sample picture

IMG_2379

we still finding out about the algorithm

IMG_2380

that can make Marylin Monroe, Einstein and even Monalisa talk! *scary

IMG_2381

Koosha

IMG_2372

Koosha is tinkering with MSDOS and QBASIC πŸ˜€

IMG_2385

IMG_2386

and then helping Capt. Awa with the TinyDuino

IMG_2407

we did some debugging to make it work

IMG_2404

IMG_2401

and it finally works!

IMG_2403

thanks so much Koosha! we just haven’t figuring out yet how to make the LED module works πŸ˜‰

IMG_2405

and then Koosha get back to Minecraft Arduino project πŸ™‚

IMG_2420

with this complex redstone and command block configuration πŸ˜€

ProCodeCG Research Center πŸ˜‰ Look at how many brains working on many projects πŸ™‚

IMG_1931 IMG_1932

IMG_1959

Wibi has just joined the class πŸ™‚

IMG_1916

Wibi will start to learn coding by playing Minecraft

IMG_1928 IMG_1974

Ryan has also joined the class Β and learning the same thing as Wibi. Kids in their age start learning basic programming skills by building things so they will learn about shapes, geometry, repetition, pattern etc. πŸ™‚

IMG_1917 IMG_1925

IMG_1975

Capt. Faris is working on his machine learning project while also teaching other kids πŸ™‚

IMG_1918

IMG_1941 IMG_1957

Fadhlan’s hardest task is to find out why the wheels stopped working

IMG_1919

while other components do work πŸ™‚

IMG_1936

Badi started to learn Python πŸ™‚

IMG_1920

because we need a script to update two different calendars for Pavilion19 website πŸ™‚

IMG_1935

Like usual, Badi is a fast learner πŸ™‚

IMG_1937

Badi learns turtle, shapes, and looping in Python very fast

IMG_1942

IMG_1948 IMG_1950

IMG_1954

before he got back to web programming: patching the problem from the previous week

IMG_1965

The problem is the calendar plug in only work for android or ios.

IMG_1967 IMG_1968

so the quick solution is provide links for both OS directing to different version of calendar

IMG_1972

Aidia is still working on her big project: color sorter with arduino

IMG_1921

Aidia spent 3 straight hours typing hundreds lines of code πŸ™‚

IMG_1927

we will start the wiring after Aidia finishes typing in the code πŸ™‚

IMG_1951

Capt. Awa is exploring new things like this rocket launcher simulation

IMG_1922 IMG_1946

IMG_1933 IMG_1934

while Al is working on a new machine learning project

IMG_1923 IMG_1960

recognising sounds

IMG_1969

Al is recording voice for “left” and “right” that will make a sprite turn to left or to the right

IMG_1970

Harraz wants to install Game Maker Studio 2

IMG_1915

This is good because Game Maker Studio 2 gives more libraries and features

IMG_1924

Harraz also wants to learn Minecraft Modding

IMG_1930 IMG_1949

Today he learns how to type in JavaScript codes into Minecraft πŸ™‚

IMG_1962

and make some geometry structures and buildings

IMG_1963

IMG_1964

this is so much fun πŸ™‚ Next week Harraz will type his own JavaScript code πŸ™‚

IMG_1973

Sam is working hard entering assets to his Juz’amma App

IMG_1926 IMG_1929

The app is now working very smoothly now

IMG_1938

After Sam is finished entering all the verses, we are ready to upload it to PlayStore πŸ™‚

IMG_1940

IMG_1947

Koosha is given a task to create a locker system in Minecraft

IMG_1945

IMG_1952

and next class we’re going to use this relay to control smart home appliances πŸ™‚

IMG_1958

IMG_1961

ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Basic Electronics – 24 May 2019

Standard

Alright we have decided the next project for Tyo πŸ™‚ We’ve been thinking for weeks about choosing a sound recognition project from several alternatives. We have to decide which one and how to do it.

Today we will try simpler one, option number #2 πŸ™‚

IMG_1848

We’re using BitVoicer for the speech recognition app to enable Arduino accepting voice command

IMG_1849

After inputting voice samples, then we test them

IMG_1850

After setting up BitVoicer then we will setup the Arduino

IMG_1852

We’re going to connect BitVoicer to Arduino that will control home appliances (or at least simulation of home appliances :))

IMG_1853

We still need some time to be able to operate BitVoice fluently but for now we already know the basic principles

IMG_1855

This is gonna be fun πŸ™‚ We’ll see how far we can push this project πŸ™‚

Two missions for today: to explore sound sensor and PIR sensor

IMG_1011

we’re going to test this sound sensor to detect the beat of a music and make a LED blinking the beat πŸ™‚

IMG_1010

the wiring

IMG_1012

the code

IMG_1013

serial monitor

IMG_1014 IMG_1015

setting up the sensitivity of the sensor

IMG_1016

and after that, it works πŸ™‚ *find the link of the videos on the bottom of the page

IMG_1018

PIR sensor, took some time to warm it up

IMG_1020

so far, after testing 2 PIR sensors, ultrasonic sensor is more reliable πŸ™‚
