ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 24 Feb 2018

Standard

It was a wet and cloudy morning but kids kept coming to the class, thanks! πŸ™‚

IMG_9657

We had a visitor today: Ibu Inge Halim –Β General Manager, Banking and Financial Markets, IBM Indonesia πŸ™‚ (on the left, in khaki blazer)

IMG_9694

Capt. BR brought her to see how kids learn and do coding πŸ™‚

IMG_9695

f594126e-f78e-45a2-ae96-759c47144561

She was amazed to see the demo of Koosha’s elevator simulation πŸ™‚

196d1e04-d5c6-4085-a9a5-17a45c2c5f77

Bu Inge took a look on what each kid was doing in the class, including Cinta’s πŸ™‚

907d67db-d016-437d-a8c6-348c5f063292

So here’s the detail of what the kids were working on today πŸ™‚

Ozan was going to control LED brightness via cloud

IMG_9658

First he had to try to control the brightness of the LED using potentiometer

IMG_9663

IMG_9664

IMG_9689

But there was some problems because the potentiometer didn’t seem to work to adjust the LED brightness

IMG_9670

We had replaced the potentiometer and it still didn’t work. Will sort this out next week and as the problem is solved we’re going to control it via MQTT Dash app from Ozan’s android phone πŸ™‚

IMG_9678

Our newcomer: Fathan πŸ™‚ *he was waiting for internet connection before he can start the lesson πŸ˜€

IMG_9659

Fathan finished learning Python with CodeCombat today

IMG_9661

And then Capt. Azriel helped him getting started with GameMaker

 

IMG_9705

Yeeay Fathan’s first game πŸ™‚

IMG_9686

Very well done, Fathan πŸ™‚ Thanks to Capt. Azriel for the assistance πŸ™‚

IMG_9698

IMG_9700

IMG_9701

IMG_9702

Nafis (in the corner) checked his MQTT Dash App to be tested today. He forgot to bring his laptop charger so we have to use another laptop to test it πŸ™‚

IMG_9660

Nafis task was to turn on/off a LED via cloud using his android phone

IMG_9690

and after several attempts, it worked πŸ™‚ With the help of Ka Ozan *because he had gone through the same thing a couple weeks ago πŸ™‚ Thanks Ka Ozan πŸ™‚

IMG_9706

Nafis satisfied look and his sister cute making faces LOL

IMG_9709

Cinta was making her idea into reality: creating a random topic generator πŸ™‚ She is going to create it in Python and then with Thunkable

IMG_9662

We also had students from Telkom University School of Economy and Business, interviewing the whole class about ProCodeCG πŸ™‚

IMG_9667

And Cinta showed them some of her most awesome works πŸ˜‰

IMG_9673

Capt. Syahna arrived and Cinta happily discuss her ideas to her because it was their ideas together to create this random topic generator πŸ™‚

IMG_9710

Capt. Faris, like usual, working on the research: data crawling and tensorflow πŸ™‚

IMG_9665

76884649-1751-4a45-bd94-edfcca7e749b

He said we need to improve the learning process because the result for certain images is like this

IMG_9696

The trend of the image recognition

IMG_9697

Vian and Ain (Ain sit on Vian’s right and we missed taking his pic today :(( ) were still doing their Minecraft Skin project together πŸ™‚

IMG_9666

Koosha worked on loads of thing πŸ˜€

IMG_9668

He determined to make his elevator simulator works πŸ™‚

IMG_9672

IMG_9676

Koosha rewrote the code

IMG_9713

IMG_9677

IMG_9680

and checked again the circuits

IMG_9681

IMG_9682

And it worked πŸ™‚ Yaaay well done!

IMG_9684 2

IMG_9692

Then we added LCD to display the info about the elevator

IMG_9712

There were still some glitches but we will work on it next week πŸ˜‰ So far it’s been a huge progress today πŸ˜‰

IMG_9714

Azriel was given a new challenge: to create a running text in Minecraft

IMG_9674

but it was too hard so we changed it to creating elevator πŸ™‚

IMG_9675

like always, Azriel found each and every way to do it πŸ™‚

IMG_9687

The elevator

IMG_9688

that goes up πŸ™‚ We’re going to find out how to make it move in both directions πŸ˜‰

IMG_9691

That’s it for today! Will be reporting again next week! πŸ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 16 Dec 2017

Standard

Hello, welcome back to our regular ESPectro programming class πŸ™‚

IMG_4411

Ozan still had a project to do: ultrasonic counter with buzzer and LED πŸ™‚

IMG_4404

the ultrasonic and LCD work fine but the buzzer didn’t πŸ˜€

IMG_4405

And we had Nadine start learning ESPectro programming today πŸ™‚

IMG_4406

And Ozan became Capt. on duty today to help Nadine learning πŸ™‚

IMG_4407

IMG_4408

The first task is to make the LED onboard blink, and the LED on breadbroad blink πŸ™‚

IMG_4409

IMG_4412

Done! πŸ™‚

IMG_4422

And then adding more LEDs πŸ™‚

IMG_4423

IMG_4435

Worked nicely πŸ™‚

IMG_4438 2

Nadine wanted to learn how to use multimeter πŸ™‚

IMG_4439 2

She learned how to check resistor value and test LEDs πŸ™‚

IMG_4441

Look at that! This girl is so eager to learn this kind of thing πŸ™‚ Cool πŸ™‚

IMG_4442

Capt. Ozan was busy creating the code to make the LED blinking alternately πŸ™‚ Well done today, Capt! πŸ™‚ :*

IMG_4443

There’s always something new to learn and lots of progress each time πŸ™‚ See you on the next! πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG – BDV – codeMeetUp() #114 & #115 IoT Series Day #2 & #3 – 13 Nov 2017

Standard

codeMeetUp() #114 and #115 in a row πŸ™‚

IMG_1897 IMG_1898

We continued the lesson last week πŸ™‚

IMG_1899

We had this awesome kids again in this class yaaay πŸ™‚

IMG_1900

IMG_1901

Today we finished the setup and started to connect ESPectro to DHT22 temperature and humidity sensors

IMG_1902

IMG_1903 IMG_1904

IMG_1905

Took some time to download the libraries

IMG_1906

IMG_1907

We finally got the reading of the sensors

IMG_1908

IMG_1910

IMG_1912

And connect it to the cloud πŸ™‚

IMG_1911

Next week we will learn more πŸ™‚

 

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

Standard

Today ProCodeCG and BDV started Day #1 of codeMeetUp() IoT Series πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ It is available on Makestro Shop πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_1350 2

We had kids in the class too πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_1355 2

ESPectro32 is already available on Makestro Shop, to those who are interested πŸ˜‰

IMG_1356

See you next week πŸ˜‰

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

Standard

Our dose of coding every Saturday πŸ™‚

IMG_0245

Cinta spent 2 sessions continuing her Arduino schematic design and simulation using Proteus πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜€ Still not working and he has to debug it on the next class πŸ˜€

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 πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_0257 IMG_0258

Awa is fully supported by mom and sister πŸ™‚

IMG_0264

IMG_0261

And Clarence joined in πŸ˜€

IMG_0315

These two have their own connections

IMG_0314

making a great team πŸ˜€

IMG_0316

Clarence started to tinker with Parallax code πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜€ Next time he has to modify the code so the buzzer will only beep when the counter reaches some certain number πŸ™‚

IMG_0299

Capt. Awa on duty πŸ˜€ Blurred pics because he moved so fast! πŸ˜€

IMG_0324

Thanks so much Capt. Awa :* ❀

IMG_0325

See you next week πŸ™‚

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

Standard

Our regular Saturday πŸ™‚

IMG_9337

Everybody has (very serious) things to do πŸ™‚

IMG_9344

Reza was ready to explore microservo with buttons πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

IMG_9352

Koosha was still working on the elevator project πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜€

IMG_9362

So we tested the LCD πŸ™‚

IMG_9370

Yeah, looking good πŸ™‚

IMG_9372

This is going to be an awesome elevator πŸ˜‰

IMG_9373

We will do more projects next week πŸ˜‰
