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

Standard

Hello, welcome back to our regular ESPectro programming class 🙂

IMG_4411

Ozan still had a project to do: ultrasonic counter with buzzer and LED 🙂

IMG_4404

the ultrasonic and LCD work fine but the buzzer didn’t 😀

IMG_4405

And we had Nadine start learning ESPectro programming today 🙂

IMG_4406

And Ozan became Capt. on duty today to help Nadine learning 🙂

IMG_4407

IMG_4408

The first task is to make the LED onboard blink, and the LED on breadbroad blink 🙂

IMG_4409

IMG_4412

Done! 🙂

IMG_4422

And then adding more LEDs 🙂

IMG_4423

IMG_4435

Worked nicely 🙂

IMG_4438 2

Nadine wanted to learn how to use multimeter 🙂

IMG_4439 2

She learned how to check resistor value and test LEDs 🙂

IMG_4441

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

IMG_4442

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

IMG_4443

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

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

Standard

codeMeetUp() #114 and #115 in a row 🙂

IMG_1897 IMG_1898

We continued the lesson last week 🙂

IMG_1899

We had this awesome kids again in this class yaaay 🙂

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 🙂

IMG_1911

Next week we will learn more 🙂

 

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 – 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 – 9 Sept 2017

Standard

Our Arduino/ESPectro Programming Class this morning 🙂

IMG_7459

Ozan was ready to modify automatic pedestrian traffic light with ultrasonic 🙂 We were going to add LCD to display information to pedestrian 🙂

IMG_7460

It worked 🙂

IMG_7478

The display will show the color of the traffic light:

red

IMG_7479

yellow

IMG_7481

green. Ozan had to change all the text into some info for pedestrian so they will know when to cross and how many times left 🙂

IMG_7482

Nafis

IMG_7462 2

and Rezky were working on the same project as Ozan

IMG_7463

These two like to work together

IMG_7468

helping each other finding bugs and make the schematics 🙂

IMG_7476

IMG_7503

and worked 🙂

IMG_7477

We just had Uben back! His usual laptop was in repair so he brought another one. We spent some time to install and setup everything 🙂

IMG_7487

Uben was told to create ultrasonic counter

 

IMG_7510

Uben likes to assemble things like this 🙂

IMG_7515

Too bad we didn’t had time to type in the code and compile it. Going to do it next week! 🙂

IMG_7519

Next week we will explore projects with micro servo! 😉
