We tried Thunkable, a spin out of AppInventor to create apps and deploy it to Android phones πŸ™‚ This is a part of Coding Camp’s preparation, we tested all materials for Coding Camp in Regular Classes so we can find out any troubles that might occurs beforehand.

Awa, the youngest one was given another task: creating games with Kodu πŸ™‚

So most of the kids worked on Thunkable

The apps created with Thunkable can be run on Android phones or if the kids don’t have smartphones, they can download the .apk and run the apps on this simulator, KoPlayer πŸ™‚ Thanks to Faris for recommending this useful simulator πŸ˜‰

Muhammad, our newcomer seemed to love working on CodeCombat πŸ™‚ He learned about sequence and loops today πŸ™‚

And here’s our lead captain keeping up with Coding Camp preparation πŸ˜‰

And another captain: Malik was working on an unbelievable project in Java! Pure Java (no Greenfoot) with Eclipse as the IDE.

And this captain, Faris, has gone very far on codeSaya.com. He started to learn OOP in Python πŸ˜€

These two, Prudence and Clarence were bored with CodeAcademy so they were tinkering around with HTML and JavaScript πŸ™‚

We still have a week for Coding Camp preparation, and we make sure all Captains are ready! This Lead Captain has to make sure everything goes right πŸ˜‰

Next week we will learn about LUA πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 4 June 2016 – Morse Code in Python

Standard

Kids said that they wereΒ bored with Greenfoot and Java so we decided to go back learning Python again today πŸ™‚
IMG_3342

We created a code to translate alphabet and numbers with morse code πŸ™‚ It was similar to our substitution cipher but this one is a bit tricky because one alphabet will be translated to more than just one character πŸ™‚

IMG_3343

Only Malik was given the task to modify the morse code because the others apparently in the mood of competition and chose to continue their Python quest on codesaya.com πŸ˜€

IMG_3347

Not all the kids were bored with Greenfoot πŸ™‚ Pru still had lots of things in mind to do with Java πŸ™‚
IMG_3344

And we have Rezandra back! He said we wanted to learn Python today and since the morse code is too advanced, he was given the task to learn from codesaya.com πŸ™‚

IMG_3345

And we had Reza back too πŸ™‚ (the kid unpacking his backpack)
IMG_3346

Roni was working on his Python quest on CodeCombat.com πŸ™‚ He understood real quick and seemed to be more involved and serious in coding now πŸ™‚
IMG_3348

Clarence (kid in white t-shirt) was still happy playing around with Greenfoot πŸ˜€

IMG_3349

Malik finally joined codesaya.com along with Reza and Rezandra after he finished the morse code πŸ™‚
IMG_3350

While this little one, Awa, decided his own topic for today, Angry Bird at code.org πŸ˜€

IMG_3351

Reza was very serious doing his work πŸ™‚
IMG_3352

And so was Rezandra πŸ™‚

These are some screenshot of the morse code today πŸ™‚
