ProCodeCG Kids Weekdays Coding Class – 18 April 2019

Standard

These two are ready to pick up where they left previous week πŸ˜‰

IMG_9806

Abil

IMG_9803

Has to begin from scratch because his usual laptop is being repaired

IMG_9807

This time the game is about solar system, blackhole, eclipse and galaxy πŸ˜€

IMG_9820

IMG_9811

IMG_9813 IMG_9818

IMG_9819

The game works but we still need to work on the storyline πŸ™‚

IMG_9823

Kinan has lots of things to be added to the game

IMG_9805

Kinan will gonna need sprites in different sizes, many rooms, many doors and portals and many other assets such as layers and animations πŸ™‚

IMG_9821

Because Kinan wants the sprite to move from one room to another, and each room will have different story and experience πŸ™‚

IMG_9814

Well, decorating is Kinan thing so this game is going to be great πŸ˜‰

IMG_9426

Hanif’s Flappy Bird project has enter the next phase

IMG_9427

We had several versions of the game to see which one working the best

IMG_9435

We’re trying every techniques and possibilities to make the game works as expected

 

IMG_9442

IMG_9449

We checked and modified every setting and finally decide we had to create another version. From scratch πŸ™‚ But at the end of this semester Hanif has achieved lots of progress.

IMG_9457

Isma’ill is now has a trash bin to be converted into a smart one πŸ™‚

IMG_9428 IMG_9431

Testing the ultrasonic sensor and the micro servo

IMG_9441

the electronics working nicely

but he had to take a break before continuing πŸ˜€

IMG_9444

Capt. Bullitt had to make sure everyone is doing their jobs πŸ™‚

IMG_9430

The trash bin is a little bit too big and we’re thinking hard to figure out how that small micro servo can open it πŸ˜€

IMG_9447

Khalis gives his support and sympathy to Capt. Bullitt who is almost giving up attaching the micro servo to the bin πŸ˜€

IMG_9453

Khalis is going to finish the game today πŸ™‚

IMG_9432

Khalis works very hard like usual, he has completed the most important features in the game πŸ™‚

IMG_9436 IMG_9438

Next semester Khalis can create new games, or improve this one. The most important thing is, Khalis had learned so much all the way πŸ™‚

IMG_9455

Until the next semester πŸ™‚

Agham has added a stop sign for the school bus so we will get socre when it reaches there

IMG_4765

IMG_4802

Agham carefully chose and edited the assets of the game

IMG_4810

The game is looking very nice, what we have to figure out next is to print score and make the bus comes from the right side of the room each time leaves the room from the left side

IMG_4817

Djalu learned how to create apps today πŸ™‚

IMG_4766

Djalu is signing up for a coding competition so we’re preparing for it

IMG_4767

Hafiz always do task in detail πŸ™‚ Look how he finds references and make the sprites as close as the real ones πŸ˜‰

IMG_4780

Finally done! We just need to add score and make the cactus appear randomly πŸ™‚ Well done Hafiz πŸ™‚

IMG_4809

Captain on Duty: Faris

IMG_4768

Faris is doing research on Machine Learning using Python Library to generated random faces

IMG_4781

The codes

IMG_4800

random process

IMG_4841

the international conference publication he’s reading today

IMG_4842

These faces are generated by an machine learning algorithm *isn’t it scary that these faces not really exist; but generated by a machine?

IMG_4843

Aidia and her big awesome project! πŸ™‚

IMG_4769

The mouse on the right will move across and when 3 ultrasonics sensors detect it, it will control the traffic light and then open the gate πŸ™‚ The awesome support from the family (the mom who created the maquette and the father bringing it to the class and bring it back after) that makes this incredible product possible πŸ™‚

IMG_4775

Aidia is a very busy little girl, she had to go right away after the class to a dance performance that’s why she looks so cute today with that hairdo and make ups πŸ™‚

IMG_4799

Sam, making great progress each time. Like always πŸ™‚

IMG_4770

Yogi is working on the same game for weeks, that amazingly looks like a real game

IMG_4786

He put HUGE effort to the game and pay attention to EVERY details

IMG_4801

The movement, the animation, the look, the feel is very real

IMG_4811

the key is that the game is not using only drag and drop coding, but mostly written codes. Β Complicated lines of codes πŸ™‚

IMG_4823

Today Yogi has successfully created what he wanted to do for weeks: make a menu controlled with arrow to select πŸ™‚ Impressive work today, Yogi πŸ™‚

IMG_4832

Here’s some of the codes

IMG_4836

IMG_4837

IMG_4838

The result is unbelievable πŸ™‚ Next to do: adding scores and fuel stats πŸ˜‰

IMG_4839

The best about this class is the kids will gather up together and help each other when needed πŸ™‚ This is when a toolbox was turned upside down and all of it contents are in the floor, kids in the class come and help πŸ™‚ Very nice πŸ™‚

IMG_4827

Can’t wait to see them again next week πŸ™‚ Until then πŸ˜‰ ❀
