Cinta spent two sessions working on PCB design and simulation using Proteus πŸ™‚

IMG_9733

She was very excited πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_9806

An awesome way to simulate πŸ™‚ Next lesson Cinta will be given task to simulate a Tic Tac Toe on Arduino πŸ˜‰

IMG_9839

Helloooo Ruben was back πŸ™‚

IMG_9738

This was where we left: creating and ultrasonic counter πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_9763

IMG_9764

And then Ruben was given this: adding buzzer and lamp to the previous one πŸ™‚ So that when the counter reaches certain number, the buzzer will be active and so will the LED πŸ™‚

IMG_9765

IMG_9774

IMG_9779

IMG_9784

Ruben likes to assemble things πŸ™‚

IMG_9785

The LED worked but not yet the buzzer πŸ™‚

IMG_9820

Will work on it next week πŸ˜‰

IMG_9829

Koosha had a new project πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_9827

IMG_9828

Excellent idea! πŸ™‚

IMG_9840

He still has to add more resistors and wires and also the coding, and we will continue working on it next week πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 7 Oct 2017

Standard

Our regular Saturday πŸ™‚

IMG_9337

Everybody has (very serious) things to do πŸ™‚

IMG_9344

Reza was ready to explore microservo with buttons πŸ™‚

IMG_9338

IMG_9342

 

Reza was assigned to code the Arduino to control microservo with 2 buttons

IMG_9351

And after lots of effort and debugging

IMG_9361

… he finished the assignment. One button will turn the micro servo clockwise and the other one will turn the micro servo counter-clockwise πŸ˜‰

IMG_9352

Koosha was still working on the elevator project πŸ™‚

IMG_9354

He had lots of ideas to be implemented

IMG_9353

IMG_9359

We will use this SD-card module to store sounds for the elevator. We were going to do the read and write test but just realized that Koosha didn’t bring the memory card πŸ˜€

IMG_9362

So we tested the LCD πŸ™‚

IMG_9370

Yeah, looking good πŸ™‚

IMG_9372

This is going to be an awesome elevator πŸ˜‰

IMG_9373

We will do more projects next week 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_3265

Rezky fixed what didn’t work the last time

IMG_3275

He redid the button and button to serial section, and both worked nicely!

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

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™‚

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™‚
