IMG_3285

IMG_3286

IMG_3287

Raul was also catching up with stuff too πŸ™‚ He was working on synchronized clock via internet through wifi on board ESPectro πŸ™‚

IMG_3262

Ruben had finished multiple LEDs last week. Today he learned about RGB LED

IMG_3273

IMG_3274

IMG_3290

Under Capt. Faris’ supervision πŸ˜‰

IMG_3263 IMG_3264

IMG_3277

This cute little guy took notes! A rare scene! Kids should be taught to do this! πŸ™‚

IMG_3282

Ruben seems to have another calling too: drawing πŸ™‚

IMG_3283

IMG_3288

Ok, with Capt. Faris assistance,

IMG_3291

Ruben has also finished to make a button worked too πŸ˜‰

IMG_3309

Hello Rezky πŸ™‚

IMG_3279

IMG_3280

IMG_3284

Abdillah was given a task to create a counter with an ultrasonic sensor

IMG_3266

It worked perfectly with an Arduino πŸ™‚

IMG_3267

The ultrasonic sensor will count how many objects detected πŸ™‚

IMG_3268

Next is to make this work with ESPectro so we can send the data via cloud πŸ™‚

IMG_3269

and make LCD I2C works with ESPectro

IMG_3305

Abdillah was helping Rezky with library errors πŸ™‚

IMG_3293

Rezvan was back too πŸ™‚ Β Working with button to serial

IMG_3306

And worked nicely! Next is button with LED πŸ™‚

IMG_3307

Capt. Malik (started to have being in a pic :D) was working on air-drum project πŸ™‚

IMG_3308

We’ve got lots of project going not only in the class but also when the kids are off the class πŸ˜‰ There gonna be lots of progress next Saturday πŸ™‚ Can’t wait πŸ˜‰

 

ProCodeCG Kids Coding Camp – IoT Programming – Day #1 – 22 June 2017

Standard

Day #1 of IoT Programming πŸ™‚ We have 3 kids for this topic πŸ™‚

Today we did some ESPectro setup and configuration, and then started basics about ESPectro. We learned about LED, button and neopixel. We created some cool stuff about neopixel on board, like creating knight rider and traffic light with pedestrian button πŸ˜‰

IMG_2067

Here’s the pics of each kid with their works πŸ™‚

Our ESPectro Programming class yesterday πŸ™‚ Muhammad arrived early and set up the class, thanks so much πŸ™‚

IMG_7258

Yesterday we finishing some installation and start testing the ESPectro starting from LED, button, and then neopixel. Some had tried the wifi connection as well πŸ™‚

This is Ren (left side, with glasses) assisting Nafis to debug his program πŸ™‚

IMG_7259

Naifs was so excited that the installation was completely done and he could start exploring the development board πŸ˜‰

IMG_7262

Muhammad was catching up with the handout, he was testing the neopixel

IMG_7263

Reza creating the traffic light with neopixel and button for pedestrian crossing πŸ™‚

IMG_7264

Ren completed all the task given πŸ™‚

IMG_7265

Danesh started following handout from the beginning, from LED to button πŸ™‚ He will probably start the neopixel next week πŸ™‚

IMG_7267

Raul quickly finished his neopixel traffic light and tried the wifi connection coding

IMG_7268

Some codes was already in the example sketches, but most of them should be typed manually πŸ™‚

IMG_7270

But if you bear with it, things will work πŸ˜‰

IMG_7273

Reza was doing modification on wifi connecting code so it can detect more than one connection πŸ™‚

IMG_7279

IMG_7282//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

We will explore more about wifi connections next week πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 15 April 2017

Standard

Our class today before most of the kids showing up πŸ™‚ Very few learning ESPectro Programming today, probably because of the long weekend πŸ™‚

IMG_6788

Clarence continued his ESPectro projects, which usually different with what’s been taught in the class πŸ˜€

IMG_6787

Ren catching up with what he missed next week πŸ™‚

IMG_6798

He finished button and button to serial

IMG_6781

And neopixel coding. He will continue the neopixel traffic light next week πŸ™‚

IMG_6780

After a month, Nafis was back πŸ™‚

IMG_6784

We needed to install libraries and drivers before we get started πŸ™‚

IMG_6791

Lucky that we have a handy handout we can always refer to! πŸ™‚

IMG_6789

We will start IoT Programming very soon, as soon as each kid’s infrastructure is ready πŸ™‚

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 25 Feb 2017

Standard

Our regular awesomeness πŸ˜‰

IMG_3479

Capt. Awa had finished the task to be done today (he had already made a video :D), so he was ready to assist the class today πŸ˜‰

IMG_3480

Today we had two tasks: creating stopwatch with 2 buttons and smart lamp with RGB LED πŸ˜‰ Β This is a Captain Meeting, discussing what to be delivered in class and making sure that the schematic works fine πŸ˜‰

IMG_3543

Friendship in class πŸ˜‰ Hello welcome back Farrell πŸ˜‰

IMG_3481

Farrell’s SSTV Project has to wait (due to the expensive components :D) so Farrell should stick with what’s given in the class πŸ™‚

IMG_3507

Clarence made lots of progress with the TFT LCD πŸ˜‰ He created lots of screen effects and cool modifications πŸ˜‰

IMG_3482 2

Clarence was curious on how to use button. Lucky that we did a project with buttons today, so Clarence can follow the class while doing his own project πŸ˜‰

IMG_3493

Clarence made stopwatch with one button instead of two πŸ™‚ and send the output to the screen πŸ™‚

IMG_3505

He kept modifying the code and make the stopwatch works with nice display πŸ™‚

IMG_3523

Next target is to display the stopwatch in analog πŸ™‚

IMG_3516

Capt. Awa (middle) assisting Areli (left) and Nafis (right)

IMG_3484 2

We had a kid sitting in the class today πŸ™‚ His name is Ansyah πŸ˜‰

IMG_3485

Nice view πŸ˜‰

IMG_3486

Capt. Awa was very busy making sure everybody had got it right πŸ˜€

IMG_3487

Impressive dedication, Areli πŸ™‚

IMG_3488

Got the feeling that soon Areli’s box should be replaced with bigger one πŸ˜€

IMG_3500

Zahran was back πŸ™‚

IMG_3489

After a while, Zahran came back to catch up πŸ˜‰

IMG_3501

Nafis was really happy today for some reasons: we didn’t use seven segments and he had lots of friends πŸ™‚

IMG_3490 2

Capt. Awa assisting Ozan (on the back) and Farrell (in the corner)

IMG_3492

Whoaaaa, why so serious, Capt. Reza? πŸ˜€

IMG_3494

IMG_3496

Ren finishedΒ his job easily, like always πŸ™‚

IMG_3497

Ozan doing his schematic under very close supervision of Capt. Awa :

IMG_3508

And it worked, yay! (They use jacket slave to cover the LDR entirely so the RGB LED will light up πŸ˜€

IMG_3511

Next week we’ll do more interesting projects πŸ˜‰ See you then πŸ™‚

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 28 Jan 2017

Standard

Hello Saturday! Today is a holiday but we got this room fully packed with kids eager to learn πŸ™‚ *this pic wasΒ earlier today before all kids showed up πŸ™‚

IMG_1602

Yaaay, we got Capt. Reza getting prepared πŸ™‚

IMG_1606

We made a roll-the-dice schematic today πŸ™‚ With 7 LEDs and 1 button, we roll the dice by pressing the button and 6 LEDs will light up in random while 1 LED in the middle tells us when it’s “rolling” πŸ™‚ Pretty fun!

IMG_1607

Farrell was still so into his SSTV project but still waiting for the components (needs approval from parents to buy them πŸ˜€ ) so he probably will continue his gyroscope project πŸ™‚

IMG_1608

Hello Raul, hopefully today the schematic will work just fine! πŸ™‚

IMG_1610

The captains πŸ™‚

IMG_1611

Kids occupied with their own things πŸ™‚

IMG_1612

Rafi was working on RGB LED schematic today πŸ™‚

IMG_1613

Ozan thought the schematic was a bit cryptic so he gave us that look πŸ˜€

IMG_1615

Halfway to finish the schematic πŸ™‚

IMG_1616

Whoaaa today is Raul’s lucky day! The schematic worked immediately (with no errors :D) Impressive work πŸ™‚

IMG_1618

This is what Ozan looks like when he doesn’t want to be in a pic πŸ˜€

IMG_1619

Rheino was copying Raul’s schematic from the breadboard πŸ™‚

IMG_1621

Rafi was typing the code

IMG_1623

Come on Farrell you need to move on for a while from SSTV. Let’s do Air Drum prototyping instead πŸ™‚

IMG_1629

Capt. Malik arrived

IMG_1630

Malik is working on Air Drum Project but we have problem with the libraries that won’t work on his laptop

IMG_1633

We had the libraries reinstalled, download more libraries and copy it to different Arduino libraries folder and still didn’t work :((

IMG_1637

Captain’s discussion πŸ™‚

IMG_1632

So how are you doing with that schematic Rheino? πŸ˜€

IMG_1634

Rafi was pretty happy to see his RGB LED worked πŸ˜‰

IMG_1640

It took a while to finish the schematic πŸ™‚

IMG_1627 2//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

And finally, Capt. Reza’s worked too πŸ˜‰ Look at that smile! Handsome guy πŸ™‚

IMG_1641

The closer look at Reza’s roll-the-dice schematic πŸ™‚ He helped Rheino and Ozan with this one πŸ™‚

IMG_1646

We will do more interesting schematic next week for sure! πŸ™‚

IMG_1203

Capt. BR should lecture Farrell about information theory πŸ™‚

IMG_1204

While Ren, as usual, try the latest lesson and test whether it works or not πŸ˜€ It is schematic to light up LEDs alternately using two buttons and a shift register πŸ™‚

IMG_1206

Abit had just joined our reguler class (he joined our coding camp last month :)). Abit is a fast learner πŸ™‚

IMG_1207

Hello Areli! It’s really nice to have you back! Please be patient with this complicated schematic and long codes πŸ™‚

IMG_1208

Capt. Malik was given a task to explore gyro for creating air drum prototype πŸ™‚

IMG_1209

The view of: Vallo having headache and Ren seriously typing the code from the manual on his android phone πŸ™‚

IMG_1210

Raul (black shirt) was upset about his not working seven segment with two buttons last week. Today he created the schematic of seven segment that shows numbers entered from Arduino serial monitor

IMG_1211

And it worked yaaay πŸ™‚ Raul is so happy πŸ™‚

IMG_1212

Abit and his multiple LED πŸ™‚ He looks bored with that hand under the chin but he’s actually very excited πŸ™‚

IMG_1213

Farrell and his SSTV, Β reading radio signal and convert it into data

IMG_1214

Ren’s schematic works just fine πŸ™‚

IMG_1215

Well done Ren, thanks! πŸ™‚

IMG_1216

Ozan’s seven segment with serial input monitor works too πŸ™‚

IMG_1217

Rafi started from the very beginning about Arduino today, to make sure he understands the required theory to get started πŸ™‚

IMG_1219

Clarence came up with his wifi and Espectro project πŸ™‚

IMG_1220

Areli and his schematic. Kids tend to dislike seven segments wiring because it looks complicated with all the wirings πŸ™‚

IMG_1224

The class

IMG_1225

Capt. BR teaches Vallo about components and how they actually work

IMG_1227

And Vallo starts the seven segment with two buttons schematic

Rafi looks so excited about his multiple LEDs πŸ™‚

IMG_1229

Capt. BR shows Vallo how to use ProCodeCG Button πŸ™‚

IMG_1230

Heeey, Capt. Reza glad to have you back! Reza is a very focus and persistent kid. He wouldn’t stop until he makes it work πŸ™‚

IMG_1240

This isΒ Farrell and Clarence in a deep discussion about SSTV etc πŸ˜€

IMG_1241

The should do this project together πŸ˜€

IMG_1243

The signal encoding πŸ™‚

IMG_1244
