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 🙂

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 7 Oct 2017

Standard

Our regular Saturday 🙂

IMG_9337

Everybody has (very serious) things to do 🙂

IMG_9344

Reza was ready to explore microservo with buttons 🙂

IMG_9338

IMG_9342

 

Reza was assigned to code the Arduino to control microservo with 2 buttons

IMG_9351

And after lots of effort and debugging

IMG_9361

… he finished the assignment. One button will turn the micro servo clockwise and the other one will turn the micro servo counter-clockwise 😉

IMG_9352

Koosha was still working on the elevator project 🙂

IMG_9354

He had lots of ideas to be implemented

IMG_9353

IMG_9359

We will use this SD-card module to store sounds for the elevator. We were going to do the read and write test but just realized that Koosha didn’t bring the memory card 😀

IMG_9362

So we tested the LCD 🙂

IMG_9370

Yeah, looking good 🙂

IMG_9372

This is going to be an awesome elevator 😉

IMG_9373

We will do more projects next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 30 Sep 2017

Standard

Our Arduino/ESPectro Programming Class today 🙂

IMG_8917

IMG_8921

Reza was getting ready to unbox his motor servo and try it for the first time

IMG_8919

The first task is to make it work

IMG_8923

the next is to activate the motor with ultrasonic

IMG_8933

And after lots of effort and debugging, it worked 😉 Nice work Reza 🙂

IMG_8959

Hyeaaay, Capt. Awa is baaack 🙂

IMG_8924

He brought new stuff: a fancy Arduino 101

IMG_8929

and a stepper 🙂

IMG_8925

Awa had lots of things in mind for the next project 🙂

IMG_8926

Awa is going to add timer to his micro servo

IMG_8931

and then create a radar with ultrasonic sensor 🙂

IMG_8956

Awa asked to be taught how to use dan read an avometer 🙂

IMG_8978

While Koosha looking around the big toolbox, Awa measure everything with the avometer 😀 Electronics and components is more interesting to this kids more than candies 😀

IMG_8979

Ozan was testing his ultrasonic motor servo

IMG_8920

Didn’t work

IMG_8934

so we asked Awa for help

IMG_8935

The ultrasonic alone was working

IMG_8936

The motor servo alone was working. But combined, it didn’t work

IMG_8938

Took some time to figure it out and we decided to change ultrasonic with button. Still didn’t work and Ozan will try again next week

IMG_8940

Vian started to work with motor servo too 🙂

IMG_8939

He was intended to create some robot crawler or something 😀

IMG_8941

While Koosha got back to his project: creating an elevator

IMG_8946 IMG_8947

IMG_8948

Koosha’s project drew Awa and Vian’s attention 🙂

IMG_8950

IMG_8951 IMG_8952

Koosha even created an animation to show how the elevator should work

IMG_8953 IMG_8954

Pretty awesome 🙂

IMG_8955

Koosha wants the elevator to play some music

IMG_8958

So we were working on making a memory board with some sounds in it to connect to Arduino and make sure the file has been read and then connect it to the speakers

IMG_8966

While Cinta was still so into her project

IMG_8981

the cryptic and complicated one, which will play different song when different button is pressed 🙂

IMG_8982

And here’s some interesting scenes about friendship and joy after the class 😉

IMG_8986 IMG_8987

IMG_8988 IMG_8989

See you next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 23 Sep 2017

Standard

Today we picked up where we left last week: making a micro servo works 🙂

IMG_8522

There were on only two kids working on Arduino/ESPectro Programming 🙂 This is Ozan

IMG_8502

He had successfully made micro servo works, and ready to add an ultrasonic sensor to activate the micro servo 🙂

IMG_8516

Nafis was working on the same thing

IMG_8519

IMG_8517

IMG_8509

IMG_8539

He added an ultrasonic to activate the micro servo and worked 😉

IMG_8538

Next week we will explore more things, and help the other kids to catch up 🙂
