ProCodeCG – Young Scientist Competition – Coaching – 20 Jan 2019


The first Young Scientist Competition Coaching to prepare the participants for the international competition πŸ™‚

Fadhlan had to present and demo his work

Time for presentation


And the robot needed some tinkering to make it work again because Fadhlan had built it from scratch


The judges

One of the judges: Pak Janto V. Sulungbudi, lend us 18650 awt batteries, he helped installing the batteries too πŸ™‚


Still not working, must be the wiring or bad wires


So we had to delay the demo until we make this work πŸ˜€


We did everything: change the power supply, add it, connect it in parallel, in serial, divide them and all, still not working. Everything on the breadboard that connected to Arduino works, but the wheels just wouldn’t.


We checked the wheels and the DC motors by giving power directly and they worked properly. we suspect the motor controller but we didn’t bring any spares.


We worked for hours. After lots cups of coffee and tea πŸ˜€


We did soldering, and unsoldering, and then it left us with one possibility: wires connecting to the dc motors. And after we changes them, it works! πŸ˜€ Fadhlan glue gunned the connecting wires to secure them and apparently it burned the wires and make them stop working (next time no glue-gunning connecting wires!)


Back to the judges


Ok the robot worked nicely, only the ultrasonic sensor didn’t give any readings. Must be the wires πŸ™‚ But at least now we know what the problem is πŸ™‚



Judges gave suggestions on what to do to upgrade the robot, and we have to make weekly reports. This is a very valuable experience and a great honour for ProCodeCG to be a part of this awesome event. We’ll be working on this for a year, if we make it to the next stage, we’ll see πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 10 Oct 2018


Yessss, we’re going to final!!!


That means after a long day of presentation and demo, Fadhlan still have to work overtime to test and improve the robot to make sure it works perfectly tomorrow πŸ™‚


And it worked nicely, successfully avoiding every obstacle in its sensor height range


We tested the robot many times with different obstacles setting, and different source of power too

Yep, finally we’re so ready for tomorrow!

ProCodeCG Kids Half-Day Coding Camp for Intermediate Day 3!

We have a problem solving competition πŸ˜‰


Kids are working in groups. This is Naufal and Ardi.Β IMG_3205 1

Hikari and Rheino are working together and discuss things.IMG_3206 1 IMG_3210 1


Malik is in the same group as Hikari and Rheino but he is given different task. They solve different problems as a group.IMG_3211 1

Nara and Rafli

Like usual, after about 2 hours we take a break and do some stretching/yoga πŸ˜‰



This is the winner of problem solving competition: Athaa – Azriel, Binar – Yumni. These two teams have got exactly the same score πŸ˜€



And finally, this is all of us!Β IMG_3233 1

See you again at ProCodeCG Kids Half-Day Coding Camp for Advanced starting tomorrow! πŸ˜‰
