ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 7 Sept 2019

Standard

Time to be productive and make progress πŸ˜‰ Every kids in our regular class have their own target and we make sure that they are making progress each week πŸ˜‰

Ara is still preparing for upcoming Young Scientist Competition. He has prepared an extended abstract, a poster and of course has also finished the code

IMG_0449

what Ara should be doing is to test the steps and try different wifi to get empirical data and measurement

IMG_0471

IMG_0482

Today Ara is trying to be an Evil Twin, to see how difficult it is to set up the attack

IMG_0486

IMG_0496 IMG_0507

Aidia is starting a new project: hand gesture recognition πŸ˜‰

IMG_0450 IMG_0452

the code is very long, so Aidia took several breaks while typing it. And not yet finished, so we’re going to finish it next week

IMG_0463

Aidia said she wanted to do the schematic first

IMG_0478

IMG_0480

The schematic is ready πŸ™‚ After the code is finished, we’re going to test it πŸ˜‰

IMG_0487

Fadhlan, with SNAPBOT I and SNAPBOT II πŸ˜‰

IMG_0453

Fadhlan is developing SNAPBOT II with basic configurations before we add an optical mouse for drawing the map

IMG_0457

but before he started, he helped Aidia to solder the gesture sensor πŸ˜‰ Thanks so much, buddy πŸ™‚

IMG_0465

Fadhlan now needs the workspace twice as big since now there are two robots to be constructed πŸ˜€

IMG_0524

Baran is going to continue intro to programming

IMG_0454

by doing challenges with higher level of difficulties

IMG_0470

IMG_0485

this challenge is not only teaching about geometric shapes but most importantly is about loop and nested loop

IMG_0498

IMG_0503

then Baran can continue to learn some Python with CodeCombat

IMG_0534

IMG_0535 IMG_0536

Techa is probably younger than Baran, but he can keep up with the lessons πŸ™‚

IMG_0455

after finishing maze puzzles

IMG_0459

IMG_0464

Techa also learns about geometric shapes, angles, loop and nested loop

IMG_0499

IMG_0500 IMG_0502

and then: Python coding with Code Combat πŸ™‚

IMG_0527 IMG_0529

Sam is figuring out how to activate his Object Recognition App for the Blind with voice

IMG_0456 IMG_0461

IMG_0462 IMG_0490

and he also working on the Juz’amma. Next week Sam will be given new project πŸ™‚

IMG_0515

Ihsan starts to learn basic electronics because he is interested to build his own robot

IMG_0458

IMG_0460

the first project: LED

IMG_0474

IMG_0476 IMG_0488

and then more LEDs

IMG_0491 IMG_0492

then RGB LED

IMG_0501 IMG_0508

and then LED and button

IMG_0517

Hafiz is performing more test to his machine learning project

IMG_0467

IMG_0475 IMG_0497

IMG_0504

and since there were so much troubles with synchronization between the learning system with the Scratch, we decided to develop the system using App Inventor

IMG_0523

Kinan is still developing her Agario Game πŸ™‚

IMG_0468 IMG_0477

IMG_0484 IMG_0512

IMG_0532

Yogi is still figuring out how to make a code to enable a moving car to stop when we click left button mouse and move when we click again

IMG_0494

IMG_0493 IMG_0510

IMG_0511

we have to find a work around for this one

IMG_0528

Koosha

IMG_0495

connecting via remote to his server at home

IMG_0505

IMG_0513

He is configuring a port forwarding

IMG_0514

to be able to connect to a Minecraft Server πŸ˜€

IMG_0519

Fab is continuously making good progress πŸ™‚

IMG_0520

IMG_0526 IMG_0506

he can solve most of the difficult problems by himself. Just give him a simple hint and he will finish it πŸ™‚

IMG_0516 IMG_0522

after this Fab will learn some Python programming before he can start creating his own game πŸ™‚

IMG_0533

IMG_7874

today we had to fix this error. Pavilion19’s website is down because the hosting is rerouting the IP address

IMG_7877

we had to report the error to the hosting admin

IMG_7908

too busy to get off the chair πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ D

IMG_7915

IMG_7916

we sent emails, called the call center, to finally make the website up again. The problem remaining is that we still had to wait to get cpanel activated again

IMG_7918

Fadhlan is going to continue compas calibration

IMG_7875

compass data readings

IMG_7895

comparing the empirical data

IMG_7896

and then uploaded the obsctacle avoiding + mapping code and test the robot

IMG_7919

IMG_7920 IMG_7936

everything seems to work normally but we ran out of time, the robot ran out of battery and so did the laptop πŸ˜€

IMG_7937

and also the engineer πŸ˜€ so we just called it a day πŸ˜€

IMG_7948

Adit is back πŸ™‚ after a looong time πŸ™‚

IMG_7911

Faiz is ready to explore sensors today πŸ™‚

IMG_7879

Today it’s ultrasonic sensor πŸ™‚

IMG_7883

And Faiz wanted to learn the code line by line. He asked the meaning of each line πŸ™‚

IMG_7890 IMG_7910

the ultrasonic readings πŸ™‚

IMG_7961

next class we will learn some other sensors before finally assemble the robot πŸ™‚

IMG_7962

Hafiz couldn’t access the machine learning server today

IMG_7885

so we changed plan into creating apps with Thunkable

IMG_7917

Hafiz learned how to create an app to recognize objects

IMG_7926 IMG_7958

The app has successfully detect objects, and Hafiz had successfully added text to voice module to the app πŸ™‚ Great progress today, Hafiz πŸ˜‰

IMG_7969

ProCodeCG Creating Games Private Class – Day #5 – 15 June 2019

Standard

On our last day we learned to create games with Game Maker Studio 2. When the time comes and we want to upload our game to App Store or PlayStore, we just need to upgrade the version πŸ™‚

Zaaka ported his old game to GMS 2 right away πŸ™‚

IMG_3590

After completing the registration

IMG_3593

Zaaka learned very fast to use a very different version of Game Maker πŸ™‚

IMG_3594

IMG_3624

IMG_3612

IMG_3608

IMG_3617

IMG_3614

IMG_3610

the game is done πŸ™‚

IMG_3619

Kishan wanted to finished the last game before upgrading πŸ™‚

IMG_3591

IMG_3603

he added this code to make the bullet in his shooting game shoot to the where the mouse is pointing

IMG_3595

and then he install Game Maker Studio 2

IMG_3592

IMG_3609

and started re-creating the game

IMG_3613

IMG_3615

IMG_3621

IMG_3616

the new game in GMS 2 but still need improvements because there are some different syntax and commands

IMG_3618

but the most important thing is that these kids have learned so much in 5 days πŸ™‚ Hoping to see you guys very soon πŸ™‚

IMG_3589

ProCodeCG Creating Games Private Class – Day #2 – 23 May 2019

Standard

Day #2. We start to think about what games to make πŸ˜‰

IMG_1778 IMG_1784

IMG_1777

This is how we do brainstorming and designing the game πŸ™‚

IMG_1779

IMG_1781

IMG_1782

IMG_1790

IMG_1791

IMG_1794

We have LOTS of ideas but we will choose one to create today: Matching Game. The game will be about matching pictures or cards. The codes:

IMG_1780

IMG_1785

IMG_1786 IMG_1789

The prototype of the game πŸ™‚ We took a lot of time to figure out how to identify same objects without too many complicated stuff πŸ™‚

IMG_1792

Great, at least it works now. The main logics have been coded, the hard work is now on creating assets πŸ˜€

IMG_1793

Creating games, even the simplest ones need hard work, persistency and experience.

IMG_1783

There’s no such things as shortcut πŸ™‚ We have to spend time and work πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 16 Dec 2017

Standard

Our open topics class πŸ™‚ Let’s see how many topics do we have today πŸ˜‰

IMG_4455

Capt. Faris, ready to continue our research about TensorFlow etc. πŸ™‚

IMG_4410

IMG_4414

We’re researching how to recognize certain object in real time with a camera πŸ™‚

IMG_4424

Yep it works πŸ˜‰

IMG_4425

It certainly recognizes persons

IMG_4426

and cellphone

IMG_4428

IMG_4429

Nice! Now we are going to add more objects and train it to be able to recognize the new objects πŸ™‚

IMG_4430

Ain was busy working on his assignments (while also preparing for kids coding camp because he’s going to be captain on duty ;))

IMG_4413

Ain had successfully created a simulation of wheels going up and down slopes πŸ™‚

IMG_4417

IMG_4418

And a simulation of some round objects falling into some surface

IMG_4452

We’re trying to simulate molecule behavior πŸ™‚

IMG_4453

Captains bonding before the class πŸ˜€

IMG_4416

Capt. Cinta was so busy catching up with Python programming

IMG_4421

She go through all the examples in the handout and ready to be given a new projectΒ  πŸ™‚

IMG_4419

Emma is back πŸ™‚ She is the only one in the class learning C/C++ for AI programming πŸ™‚ She was also given a task to explore Python AI Library as a comparison and just in case we need her to help us with the TensorFlow project πŸ™‚

IMG_4415

While J still stuck in finding ways to create a running text in Minecraft

IMG_4451

So he created something else instead πŸ™‚

IMG_4431 IMG_4432

IMG_4433 IMG_4434

J was still figuring out how to solve the problem with piston limit πŸ™‚

IMG_4436

While Azriel started to learn RedStone

IMG_4437

Azriel created automatic door with pressure plate and with lever πŸ™‚ There’s so much things to explore with this new skill πŸ™‚

IMG_4461

And now we have two web programmers: Nadine

IMG_4444

and Nanin πŸ™‚

IMG_4445

They both started to learn HTML and createΒ  their own website design πŸ™‚

IMG_4446 IMG_4447

IMG_4448

They look so happy πŸ™‚

IMG_4454

These girls type their own code and make some changes to the color, background, size and fonts πŸ™‚

IMG_4456

And they help each other, of course πŸ™‚

IMG_4458

Vian πŸ™‚ Got some help from Ain to make what’s in his head reality πŸ™‚

IMG_4449

IMG_4462

And these two little bros of Ain were playing with Ain’s work πŸ˜€

IMG_4464

Lots of topics and progress as always! πŸ™‚ Can’t wait until the next class πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 9 Dec 2017

Standard

Our open topics class today πŸ™‚

IMG_3911

IMG_3890

Ain came up today with a breakthrough: creating some physics simulation using GameMaker Studio πŸ™‚

IMG_3882

IMG_3881

We’re going to see if this tools can make better physics simulation than our GameMaker Lite πŸ™‚

IMG_3876

The workspace

IMG_3877

The performance graph

IMG_3878

Creating objects

IMG_3885

Ain was given challenge to simulate a car running down the hill for the next class πŸ˜€

IMG_3899

Capt. Cinta is back πŸ™‚ As happy as usual, coding while singing πŸ˜€

IMG_3883

Today Cinta said she missed Python coding so she decided to code in Python again yaaay! We created some games in Python not so long ago and Cinta wants to recreate it πŸ™‚

IMG_3889

IMG_3893

IMG_3894

This is what we call “happy coding face” πŸ˜€

IMG_3896

So glad that finally someone of our kids working on Python again πŸ™‚

IMG_3904

And for the second session Cinta explored Minecraft and startet to build things in there

IMG_3912

Cinta was challenged to create running text in Minecraft πŸ˜‰

IMG_3913

IMG_3914

Meanwhile, Capt. Faris was given a task to do some research with Python Pandas and Tensorflow πŸ™‚

IMG_3891

Faris has been very reliable about whatever tasks given to him

IMG_3897

We had some problems with plotting data with Matplotlib earlier, and Faris should fix that

IMG_3903

He even tried Jupyter to make it work

Bildschirmfoto 2017-12-09 um 9.51.56 AM

The data had been gathered and displayed but cannot be plotted

IMG_3906

IMG_3923

It worked on Faris’ laptop but not on Mac

IMG_3909

After some investigation and virtualenv testing, plus exploring directory and so on, Faris triumphantly discovered how make it work: using python3 πŸ˜€

Yas! The data plot is come into view finally πŸ™‚ Thanks Faris πŸ™‚

 

IMG_3922

IMG_3910

Ajil is a persistent and focus kid. He started to create games in Minecraft πŸ™‚

IMG_3916

He had to write long lines of code πŸ™‚

IMG_3924

IMG_3925

IMG_3925

IMG_3934

IMG_3933

And we finally make Guessing Game work in Minecraft (Capt. Faris helped a lot)

IMG_3935 2

Well done, Ajil, we’re going to make more games next week πŸ™‚

IMG_3936

Vian was doing projects with Ain

IMG_3917

They’re discussing all the time πŸ˜€

IMG_3918

Vian was being supported by the whole family (Tetru wasn’t there): Ain, Empati and Tiga (they’re all brothers) πŸ˜€

IMG_3931

While Capt. Azriel teamed up with Jundy

IMG_3930

IMG_3915

Jundy was thinking about how to make running text in Minecraft

IMG_3937

He was experimenting with piston

IMG_3938

The problem is apparently piston only has limited number of blocks to push

IMG_3939

So we probably should come up with something else

IMG_3940

Jundy tried many possibilities

IMG_3942

IMG_3944

And make simulations to see how far a piston would push a block

IMG_3945

But still didn’t work and we will think about another way doing it next week πŸ™‚

IMG_3947

Captains doing research (proud :))

IMG_3892IMG_3895

IMG_3943

So proud to have these kids πŸ™‚ See you again next week πŸ™‚
