ProCodeCG Kids Coding Camp – Creating Apps – Day #3

Standard

Creating Apps, the last day!

Today we did some improvements to our previous guessing number game. Now we add a label text giving a clue whether the guess is too small or too big.

99 is to big

while 30 is too small

and 60 is the correct answer! 🙂 the number is generated randomly each time.

We created new blocks and deactivated the old one (a very cool visual of commenting out the code ;))

Then we add a number of try to the code

Now we can see how many tries it takes to guess the correct number

The next is creating an app to determine whether a number is even or odd

We also tried how to connect to Google Maps

Thunkable gives access to latitude and longitude from Google Maps

The last one is creating an app to determine how old are you by entering your birthday date

Bildschirmfoto 2016-07-02 um 12.24.19 PM

We did lots of trial and modifications
Bildschirmfoto 2016-07-02 um 1.15.35 PM

We use DatePicker to get the birthday date input

Bildschirmfoto 2016-07-02 um 1.27.12 PM

The app still need to be improved, too bad we were running out of time!

This is the class in the morning, before more kids showing up

Kids are very happy to play the apps on their own smartphones

Everyone has different version of code. This is Capt. CG’s
IMG_5644

And this is Capt. Zaki’s. Looks totally different 😀

Break time
IMG_5646 IMG_5647

Kids are kids. They played hide and seek during break time 😀
IMG_5648

And after that, we still struggling to make the code work 😀

IMG_5649

Because today’s topic is advanced apps in Thunkable, most of the kids got headache LOL
IMG_5652

The block of code was too long
IMG_5653

And lots of logics to be figured out

IMG_5654

We didn’t have time to finalize the code and had to pack up
IMG_5655

And say goodbye to the last day of ProCodeCG Coding Camp!

But don’t worry we’ll be back in six month! 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Coding Camp – Creating Apps – Day #1

Standard

First day of Creating Apps! 🙂

Today we learn how to create android apps with Thunkable

Thunkable is a spin off of App Inventor. It is a very friendly tools to create mobile apps

Bildschirmfoto 2016-06-30 um 9.56.10 AM

And after the apps ready, it can be exported using QR Code or as .apk to be downloaded to computer, and run with a simulator.

Bildschirmfoto 2016-06-30 um 9.41.18 AM

As the beginning, we create a button that will display a picture when it is clicked
Bildschirmfoto 2016-06-30 um 10.00.50 AM

Thunkable use drag and drop coding (very similar to Blockly)

Bildschirmfoto 2016-06-30 um 10.06.49 AM

A recommended simulator is KoPlayer (for PC) or BlueStacks (for Windows and Mac). This is how the app looks like on BlueStacks for Mac
Bildschirmfoto 2016-06-30 um 10.30.18 AM

The next app we created is a login form

How it looks like on BlueStacks
Bildschirmfoto 2016-06-30 um 1.24.18 PM

If we enter the correct user id and password, it will go to the next screen

Bildschirmfoto 2016-06-30 um 1.24.23 PM

Then we add some back button
Bildschirmfoto 2016-06-30 um 1.39.23 PM

And some time picker too
