ProCodeCG Kids Programming Class 8 Aug 2015 – Creating Calculator


Today we pick up where we left last week, finishing our calculator project! πŸ™‚

We have lots of kids today, including those who weren’t coming last week, so we have to jump start some of them to catch up with others πŸ˜‰

The class is roughlyΒ divided into 3 groups: Cinta and Gaga, the youngest and missed the last class so they have to catch up on turtle, looping and button in turtle. Rheino, Malik and Hikari, also young and tend to work in groups and make similar progress together, and mostly refuse typing in codes :D. And the others are older kids who have started their calculator projects and ready to continue (and willing to type the codes) πŸ˜‰

Rafli can show lots of passion, he always sit on the front copying the codes, but if it takes too long he will just give up and get distracted. Cinta seek for help to Capt. Syahna πŸ™‚

Because the class have different progress, the display should show different snippets of codes, makes the operator (Capt. Syahna) very busy changing window and scrolling up and down πŸ˜€
