ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming and Open Topics – 20 Jan 2018

Standard

Our Saturday coding class 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Cinta started to explore Python libraries for games

Untitled

Untitled

Faris helped Cinta to install and test PyGame

Untitled

The code

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Cinta is aiming to create something like this 🙂

Untitled

Awa was given another project 🙂

Untitled

to connect Minecraft to Arduino

Untitled

we tried several ways but nothing worked

Untitled

Neither this one 😦 We’re going to figure it out next time

Untitled

Ain was given a task to collaborate with Awa. Ain should create the structures in Minecraft while Awa connect it to the hardware in the real world

Untitled

Too bad it didn’t work yet so Ain continued his projects in Minecraft by creating more complex structures using Red Stone

Untitled

Untitled

Vian was still so interested in Minecraft Command Block

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

A tool to create command blocks

Untitled

And we also had Danen 🙂

Untitled

continuing his next game, Racing Car 🙂

Untitled

Under the supervision of Capt. Azriel (blue jacket)

Untitled

Untitled

The game is almost done 🙂 Danen will finish it next week 🙂

Untitled

Nafis was really busy doing a project for school: running text on a LCD

Untitled

Capt. Azriel made sure he type every single line, because you had to type to code 😀

Untitled

Al’s TLauncher needed to be updated so it took a while before he can start. Al learned more about looping and how to add different blocks in different colors in Minecraft with JavaScript

Untitled

Ozan was still debugging his work, using Nafis’ code just to find out if it work

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Capt. Faris continued our TensorFlow research

Untitled

While also helping other kids

Untitled

and exchanging ideas with Jundy 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

So much ideas and collaboration today 🙂 Can’t wait until next week 🙂

ProCodeCG Regular Coding Class – ESPectro/Arduino Programming & Open Topics – 13 Jan 2018

Standard

Our regular coding class is always open for any kids interested to learn about technology and want to be a programmer/researcher 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Awa (left) was doing a research on reading objects around for robots using ultrasonic (Capt. Fizhan on the right was just looking around LOL)

Untitled

But first Awa wanted to show his latest project with ProCodeCG LED

Untitled

Untitled

Then moved on to the next project

Untitled

ultrasonic and motor servo

Untitled

the ultrasonic worked but the motor servo wouldn’t spin 😀

Untitled

apparently two cables was switched and it worked after we reversed it 😀

Untitled

Firaas (yellow shirt) was ready to learn GameMaker 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Azriel (blue shirt) was assigned the task to teach Firaas 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

the sprite

Untitled

the wall

Untitled

the first game created by Firaas yaaay 🙂 Firaas will learn to create another game next week 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Cinta was still doing the research about creating a story generator with Python 😉

Untitled

Untitled

Cinta discussed the content of the database to create the story with another writer 😀

Untitled

And another one joining in 🙂

Untitled

These three are brilliant girls who love writing 🙂

Untitled

And Cinta’s code is a combination of Cinta’s writing and coding skill 🙂 Nice!

Untitled

For next week Cinta wanted to create a game in Python 🙂 We’ll see what game it will be 🙂

Untitled

Ain and Awa explored lots of structures with RedStone in Minecraft

Untitled

Ain created lots of things in there

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Even rockets 🙂

Untitled

and infinite rails 🙂

Untitled

Azriel was also exploring structure with RedStone in Minecraft

Untitled

He created a dispenser than can give you meat and water

Untitled

Untitled

A seven segment display

Untitled

Untitled

and more 🙂

Untitled

And we have Sulaiman joining the regular class yaay 🙂 Warming up with Minecraft Hour of Code

Untitled

Sulaiman did it very well because he’d done this with Thunkable when he was taking Creating Apps topic on the last Coding Camp 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

We download the requirement and setup the computer while Sulaiman was working with Minecraft Hour of Code, and when he finished, we’re ready to go 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Ain (wearing hat) helped Sulaiman with the setup

Untitled

Sulaiman learned to create simple structures using JavaScript code in Minecraft

Untitled

 

Untitled

 

Untitled

Next time he will write his own code and create more complex structures like this one 🙂

Untitled

Until next week 😉

 

 

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming & Open Topics – 6 Jan 2018

Standard

Hello Saturday class 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

We had a newcomer: Firaas 🙂

Untitled

There was a problem with Firaas’ laptop: it wouldn’t let browser to browse 😀 Capt. Azriel (green shirt) tried to help

Untitled

Capt. Faris (dark grey ProCodeCG jacket) and Capt. Ain (grey shirt) helped too

Untitled

It took 3 captains and we still couldn’t figure it out 😀

Untitled

So we took different laptop and let Firaas started learning basic programming with Minecraft Hour of Code peacefully 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Yep, it’s done! 🙂

Untitled

and then Blockly Games

Untitled

Next, CodeCombat 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Ain helped

Untitled

Firaas learned for 3 straight hours 🙂

Untitled

So he deserved some Minecraft time 5-10 mins before the class ended 🙂

Untitled

Ain learned a new thing: BlocklyCraft 🙂 A drag-and-drop Minecraft Modding programming 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Faris gave Ain a jump start 🙂

Untitled

Ain will be given the task to explore BlocklyCraft 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Nafis was assigned to debug his project all over again 😀

Untitled

start from scratch

Untitled

ready to test

Untitled

the LCD didn’t work

Untitled

but the ultrasonic sensor worked

Untitled

trying to make LCD works

Untitled

Untitled

it did, and counting 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

then we added buzzer, and it worked 🙂 we still hadn’t time to figure out how to make it beep when it counts 🙂

Untitled

Cinta was doing another challenge in Python

Untitled

Untitled

Creating a Hangman game 🙂

Untitled

These girls collaborating to create the questions 😀

Untitled

Untitled

The result

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

And for the next session, Cinta wanted to do some Minecraft Modding 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

While Azriel had a bad headache LOL

Untitled

We were trying to figure out this code to create a triangle in Minecraft using BlocklyCraft

Untitled

We had tried every possible ways

Untitled

And yet it still didn’t work

Untitled

And kept giving us false result :((

Untitled

Untitled

So we called Faris for help

Untitled

And he found out that something was wrong with the converter and it kept crashing the server

Untitled

Apparently the converter from Blockly to JavaScript didn’t work smoothly.

Untitled

So we assigned another task to Azriel: creating structures with RedStone

Untitled

And our research, conducted by Capt. Faris had shown lots of progress

Untitled

now the algorithm can count objects

Untitled

So we add another data sets

Untitled

we used bigger data set for higher precision

Untitled

comparison of left: larger dataset, right: smaller dataset

Untitled

the counting

Untitled

Untitled

the dataset

Untitled

how to change dataset

Untitled

we need place to run the training because the last time we tried, Google Cloud Engine didn’t work 😦

Untitled

Will be reporting again next week 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 11 Nov 2017

Standard

Hello from our kids regular coding class 🙂

IMG_1715

Today we only had one kid doing ESPectro Programming: Ozaaaaan 🙂 😉

IMG_1718

Ozan had to continue his project: ultrasonic with buzzer and LED 🙂

IMG_1719

We changed the plan a bit: the buzzer will beep each time the ultrasonic detects something, not when the counter reaches a certain number

IMG_1721

Ozan had to rewrite the code by combining several files together 🙂

IMG_1722

It didn’t work so Ozan had to try ultrasonic only with buzzer, without LCD to see if it works. Then attaching the LCD after that 😀

IMG_1733

Hang on Zan, you can do it! LOL 😀

IMG_1740

We still have next week! 😉

ProCodeCG – BDV – codeMeetUp() #113 IoT Series Day #1 – 6 Nov 2017

Standard

Today ProCodeCG and BDV started Day #1 of codeMeetUp() IoT Series 🙂

ProCodeCG - codeMeetUp() #113 - ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #113 - IoT Weather Programming Series 1:4 - small

Today we learned some intro about IoT, take a look at some devboards and sensors

IMG_1346 IMG_1347

We used devboard from DyCodeX: ESPectro ver 3 🙂 It is available on Makestro Shop 🙂

IMG_1348

and then started to install Arduino IDE, drivers and ESPectro Libraries

IMG_1349

As usual, the beginning is always painful because it takes time to download the libraries, and do the setting 🙂

IMG_1350 2

We had kids in the class too 🙂

IMG_1351 2

IMG_1357

Everybody seemed to have fun, despite of the obstacles (different on every OS :D)

IMG_1352 IMG_1353

IMG_1354

The first group successfully installed ESPectro library and make the LED blinks, plus turned neopixel off. They were given task to make neopixel blink but time was up so we had to continue next week 🙂

IMG_1355 2

ESPectro32 is already available on Makestro Shop, to those who are interested 😉

IMG_1356

See you next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming

Standard

Our Arduino/ESPectro Programming class today 🙂

IMG_0708

IMG_0728 1

One of our extension cable didn’t work so Capt. Awa opened and checked it with voltmeter 🙂

IMG_0715

He found the source of problem and fixed it 🙂

IMG_0716

Took extra patience and some amount of perseverance to do this kind of job 😀

IMG_0717

IMG_0724

It took lots of positions too 😀

IMG_0725

And finally after several testing, Capt. Awa officially announced that the extension cable was working properly and ready to be used. Thanks so much Capt.!

IMG_0733

After got his technical support job done, Capt. Awa got back to his sonar project 🙂 He was experimenting with Parallax
IMG_0711//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0722

and its standard servo 🙂

IMG_0723

the ultrasonic was mounted on top of the servo

IMG_0778

Capt. Awa teamed up with Clarence because Clarence will develop the code to display the reading from Awa’s sonar system to a TFT display

IMG_0734 1

IMG_0735 1

A really great teamwork 🙂

IMG_0756

Clarence also has his own project, sorting algorithm visualization

IMG_0741

He added more features including serial monitor commands to run the sorting using any chosen algorithm

IMG_0770//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0771//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0755

IMG_0772

Then he started working on ultrasonic

IMG_0790

and the reading worked just fine

IMG_0787

IMG_0788

IMG_0789

Next is to add micro servo  🙂

IMG_0792

Ozan was still struggling with adding buzzer to ultrasonic counter

IMG_0727

The ultrasonic counter worked fine until he added a buzzer 😀

IMG_0720

We’ve done lots of debugging and try-and-retry attempts but it still didnt’ work 🙂 Have to try again next week 🙂
IMG_0730

IMG_0777//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

After the class: kids just wouldn’t stop 😀

IMG_0798

Friendship scenes after the class 🙂

IMG_0800

IMG_0795

Capt. Fizhan (corner) was given a project to design a logo for Bu Rieny (Coding Mom Batch-3) with Wibi (middle) and Ozan (right) accompanying 🙂

IMG_0796

Will be reporting more excitement next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro – 21 Oct 2017

Standard

Our dose of coding every Saturday 🙂

IMG_0245

Cinta spent 2 sessions continuing her Arduino schematic design and simulation using Proteus 🙂

IMG_0243

She tried several designs and with different components

IMG_0286//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0249

Proteus provides library of components so it is very helpful 😉

IMG_0277

Nafis was back after a while, and he was working on adding buzzer and LED to ultrasonic counter

IMG_0250 IMG_0252

Nafis refused to connect and test the components one by one; instead he put all components and compile to see what happened 😀 Still not working and he has to debug it on the next class 😀

IMG_0274

Nafis little sister, Nayla liked to play with the components (she refuse to be photographed :D)

IMG_0254

IMG_0266

Awa came with a new toys: Arduino Parallax 😀

IMG_0256

IMG_0284//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Awa was given a task to create a radar with ultrasonic and microservo and he started with this one 🙂

IMG_0257 IMG_0258

Awa is fully supported by mom and sister 🙂

IMG_0264

IMG_0261

And Clarence joined in 😀

IMG_0315

These two have their own connections

IMG_0314

making a great team 😀

IMG_0316

Clarence started to tinker with Parallax code 🙂 He was previously given a task to process data from sonar reading and display it to a TFT screen

IMG_0317

Reza was doing the same thing as Nafis but he did it differently: he puts one component at a time and tests it one by one

IMG_0259

IMG_0282

Reza is one very focus and determined kid 🙂

IMG_0318

He kept trying

IMG_0319

IMG_0322

And the time’s up when he was almost finished. The buzzer won’t stop beeping 😀 Next time he has to modify the code so the buzzer will only beep when the counter reaches some certain number 🙂

IMG_0299

Capt. Awa on duty 😀 Blurred pics because he moved so fast! 😀

IMG_0324

Thanks so much Capt. Awa :* ❤

IMG_0325

See you next week 🙂
