ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 11 June 2016 – Thunkable


Today we learned new things and we got newcomers too πŸ™‚ We got Tyo and Muhammad joining the class πŸ™‚


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™‚

While Prudence and Clarence picking up where they left on Python CodeAcademy 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 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™‚

While these guys working in groups on Reza’s computer πŸ™‚


So everybody’s got their thing to do πŸ™‚ It might be different topics in different languages but they’re all doing some coding! 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


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

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™‚


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 πŸ˜€


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

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 πŸ™‚


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

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

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


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

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


Reza was very serious doing his work πŸ™‚

And so was Rezandra πŸ™‚


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