ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Basic Electronics – 19 June 2019

Standard

It’s been a while since the last class and we have to revisit again what we did the last class πŸ˜€

IMG_3944

IMG_3946

the first one is to check the bluetooth connection

IMG_3947

IMG_3948

successful

IMG_3949

and then testing speech to text app

IMG_3950 IMG_3951

works fine

IMG_3952

and then working on connecting speech to text to Arduino

IMG_3953

still not working

IMG_3955

no sign of text on the serial monitor 😦 we need to work more on this bluetooth connection (same thing happened with the robot project so we really need to figure this out)

ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Basic Electronics – 31 May 2019

Standard

Our project today is to create a speech recognition app in Thunkable to give command to Arduino

IMG_2278

IMG_2277

The speech to text app

IMG_2279

the code

IMG_2282 IMG_2283

now connecting to bluetooth

IMG_2284 IMG_2286

successfully paired

IMG_2287

and now combining the speech to text code with the code to connect to bluetooth

IMG_2288

the arduino and bluetooth

IMG_2291

we did some research about how to control Arduino with Thunkable

IMG_2292

making the code

IMG_2294

IMG_2295

We still cannot connect the app to bluetooth, will figure this out in the next class πŸ™‚

Fadhlan’s saga still continues πŸ˜€

IMG_2335

a brand new shiny robot πŸ™‚

IMG_2334

very neat! πŸ˜‰

IMG_2333

Fadhlan is going to test the power source for the robot today

IMG_2337

IMG_2363

IMG_2393

We are testing several codes to the robot

IMG_2362

IMG_2398

The robot now can send ultrasonic readings via bluetooth to this laptop

IMG_2399

now testing ultrasonic reading

IMG_2410

make sure the data format is correct

IMG_2411

and create a map based on the data

IMG_2412

the robot works well except one thing: we need less voltage because we have just crashed the robot because it moved to fast πŸ˜€

IMG_2415

Sam has lists to do in finishing the app

IMG_2336

after uploading all the asset to the app, Sam has to create logo for the app πŸ˜€

IMG_2347

The code is A LOT πŸ™‚ Hang on Sam, we’re going to finish this very soon πŸ™‚

IMG_2349

Al is going to finish 2 projects today

IMG_2346

One is the alien language project

IMG_2350

the code will make the green monster follow what we say πŸ™‚

IMG_2351

when we say left, it will move to the left and vice versa πŸ˜‰

IMG_2352

the next project

IMG_2402

IMG_2416

is to give tourists info about recommended places πŸ™‚ Awesome Al πŸ™‚

IMG_2417

Capt. Awa’s plan today is to test the TinyDuino

IMG_2354

while also teaching πŸ™‚

IMG_2364

This is the TinyDuino with LED module and battery module

IMG_2388

The TinyDuino is in the middle. On the left side is the battery module and on the right side is the LED module

IMG_2389

Capt. Awa is discussing TinyDuino with Koosha to figure out how it works

IMG_2414

Wibi is making a lot of progress today πŸ™‚

IMG_2355

He’s given a task to create as many structures as he can in Minecraft πŸ™‚

IMG_2382

like connecting hallway

IMG_2384

basement

IMG_2391 IMG_2392

secret passage

IMG_2395

a glass roof for the basement

IMG_2396

adding door for entering the house properly πŸ™‚

IMG_2408

Ryan is also learning the same things as Wibi

IMG_2356

only Ryan will prefer more experiments with structures πŸ˜€

IMG_2358

IMG_2383

IMG_2390 IMG_2359

Capt. Faris

IMG_2360

and his recent research

IMG_2377

a super cutting edge technology

IMG_2378

an algorithm that can make living portraits from just ONE sample picture

IMG_2379

we still finding out about the algorithm

IMG_2380

that can make Marylin Monroe, Einstein and even Monalisa talk! *scary

IMG_2381

Koosha

IMG_2372

Koosha is tinkering with MSDOS and QBASIC πŸ˜€

IMG_2385

IMG_2386

and then helping Capt. Awa with the TinyDuino

IMG_2407

we did some debugging to make it work

IMG_2404

IMG_2401

and it finally works!

IMG_2403

thanks so much Koosha! we just haven’t figuring out yet how to make the LED module works πŸ˜‰

IMG_2405

and then Koosha get back to Minecraft Arduino project πŸ™‚

IMG_1942

IMG_1948 IMG_1950

IMG_1954

before he got back to web programming: patching the problem from the previous week

IMG_1965

The problem is the calendar plug in only work for android or ios.

IMG_1967 IMG_1968

so the quick solution is provide links for both OS directing to different version of calendar

IMG_1972

Aidia is still working on her big project: color sorter with arduino

IMG_1921

Aidia spent 3 straight hours typing hundreds lines of code πŸ™‚

And when he was busy soldering the robot, the seat of the chair fell πŸ˜€ Glad he wasn’t hurt and nothing was broken πŸ™‚

IMG_0757

The batteries (that later sparks because the switch got short-circuited)

IMG_0780

So Fadhlan has to fix the switch and check why one wheel doesn’t work

IMG_0798

Sam has got serious things to do with the Juz’amma app

IMG_0741

IMG_0747

He now can store data in local storage but not yet with local database

IMG_0762

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 30 Mar 2019

Standard

Coding crowd this Saturday πŸ˜‰

IMG_8533

IMG_8555 IMG_8556

IMG_8557

Hafiz is working on Plant vs Zombie Game. It is quite difficult and takes more time to develop than the previous ones

IMG_8509

Preparing the sprites

IMG_8505

the assets

IMG_8506

each sprite is carefully designed πŸ™‚

IMG_8528 IMG_8534

the background

IMG_8535

IMG_8554

Testing plant placing

IMG_8560

The objects are now placed neatly in the room πŸ˜‰

IMG_8561

More objects added πŸ™‚ Nice! Next is to add scoring and spawning the zombie randomly πŸ™‚

IMG_8587

Sam’s work is getting harder and harder to do since the target is to release this app to PlayStore

IMG_8507

We need to think how to manage the screens and the size of the app

IMG_8520

We are discussing the screen flow and the best UI/UX design especially to show the user the progress of memorizing the Juz’Amma

IMG_8523

we just realized that Sam’s app has too many screens and that makes the app size grows. The more the screens, the harder it is to manage

IMG_8524

Capt. Faris had his own app developed with Android Studio, and he shared his architecture to us

IMG_8529

it is time to throw in database πŸ˜‰ and the trick is to create limited screen, and reload the view from the database

IMG_8530

so Sam has to learn about accessing TinyDB πŸ˜€

IMG_8545

It leaves him like this LOL

IMG_8583

Fadhlan, stop eating the candy and start to work! πŸ˜€

IMG_8508

We have to work on this: testing the right and left motor plus the controller, and make it navigates

IMG_8519

Working hardddd there you go πŸ˜€

IMG_8536

IMG_8537

Capt. Awa helped us testing the robot *and ran away when the robot was activated because it refuse to avoid obstacles LOL but at least we know that button, LED, buzzer, wheels, are working and we just need to check the ultrasonic before adding compass and bluetooth module πŸ˜€

IMG_8569

Capt. Faris and his research πŸ˜€ He was given a challenge to learn how to prevent shoplifting with camera object detection

IMG_8510 IMG_8525 IMG_8546

Capt. Awa, brought new toys!

IMG_8511

The new stuffs have the same size as a coin!

IMG_8512

wowww, modules for TinyDuino

IMG_8513

IMG_8514

IMG_8515

But we still couldn’t get these little mates to work :(( We suspected the USB-UART driver or probably the port

IMG_8526

So Capt. Awa explored another thing: basic electronics simulation

IMG_8542 IMG_8550

IMG_8553 IMG_8558

and then helping us with the robot

IMG_8570

the robot was going in circles so Capt. Awa helped us switching the polarity πŸ™‚

IMG_8572

Testing is done for today (too many things being hit by the robot LOL)

IMG_8574

Badi’s website is ready to be uploaded to public πŸ™‚ Today Badi will buy domain and hosting and upload it

IMG_8521

We’re searching for the best option, and after we got one, Pavilion19 will have a website πŸ™‚

IMG_8540

Aidia is so excited about her Minecraft Project today πŸ™‚

IMG_8517

She brought lots of books for references πŸ™‚

IMG_8518

IMG_8538

IMG_8559

Aidia does both design and mechanical structures in Minecraft

IMG_8564

IMG_8566

Look at this: she created a locker system below a beautiful building she designed πŸ˜‰ How nice!!!

IMG_8584

Inside the locker corridor πŸ™‚ Next week we’re going to add button to get a specific locker sent to a specific person πŸ˜‰

IMG_8585

Al is going to make another animation, yaaay πŸ™‚

IMG_8522 IMG_8527

He’s getting better πŸ™‚

IMG_8541

Al finds references on the internet to get more ideas

IMG_8551

And he created animation for educational purposes like this one πŸ™‚

IMG_8552

IMG_8589

We have a newcomer: welcome Andra πŸ™‚

IMG_8543

Like the others, Andra had to go through the intro to programming

IMG_8549 IMG_8563

One challenge down

IMG_8565

Now another one, and Andra can do it very quickly with lots of excitement πŸ™‚

IMG_8567

IMG_8580

Yogi came with the same problem from the last class: displaying a score that follows the object πŸ™‚

IMG_8547

This one worked for Game Maker Studio 2 but not with version 1 so we tried so many ways and still couldn’t figure it out. Don’t worry Yogi we’ll work it out

IMG_6283

Syadad is now ready for a code combat πŸ˜‰

IMG_8562

Syadad is very excited with this challenge, especially because now he has a friend: Andra πŸ™‚

IMG_8568

Next week Syadad will be ready for creating games yaay!!!
