Our Arduino/ESPectro Programming Class this morning πŸ™‚

IMG_7459

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

IMG_7460

It worked πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_7476

IMG_7503

and worked πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_7487

Uben was told to create ultrasonic counter

 

IMG_7510

Uben likes to assemble things like this πŸ™‚

IMG_7515

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

IMG_7519

Next week we will explore projects with micro servo! πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Coding Camp – Arduino Programming Day #2 – 6 Jan 2017

Standard

Arduino Programming Day #2 πŸ™‚ We learned about sensors πŸ™‚

IMG_0305

The first sensor is LDR (Light Dependent Resistor)

IMG_0306

Capt. Fizhan makes his own schematic too

IMG_0308 IMG_0309

Done and works well πŸ™‚

IMG_0310

“Don’t take my pic” gesture of every captain is a common thing in our classes πŸ˜€

IMG_0311

Salman might look so small but he can follow the lesson πŸ™‚ The only obstacle is that he has to deal with lots of typing (which is not his fault πŸ˜€ )

IMG_0312

Kiran is very quiet but persistence πŸ™‚ She constantly finished the task one by one with very few errors. This girl has got a brain wiring that works like electronics πŸ™‚

IMG_0313

Capt. Syahna before unloading her laptop and thick book πŸ˜€

IMG_0314

Salman’s Dad is being productive too πŸ™‚ He moved his office to this corner with kids carpet and little smiley table πŸ™‚

IMG_0315

Capt. BR moves his office too πŸ˜€

IMG_0324

Capt. Awa and mom also moved their office to the class πŸ™‚ Yeaay the more the merrier πŸ™‚

IMG_0347

IMG_0316

Next we add LED to the LDR schematic so that when LDR receives low light, the LED will light up πŸ™‚

IMG_0317

The schematic is a little bit tricky

IMG_0319

It took some time to make it work

IMG_0320

IMG_0325

Still not working

IMG_0326

Need some debuggin

IMG_0333

almost giving up

IMG_0334

He changed the LED and Capt. Zaki came for some help

IMG_0329

and it finally worked πŸ™‚

IMG_0335

Salman is still working on his

IMG_0321

and so is Kiran

IMG_0322

There was some errors

IMG_0323

Capt. Zaki come to debug

IMG_0327 2

and also Capt. BR

IMG_0330

Took some time to figure it out

IMG_0331

And it finally worked πŸ™‚

IMG_0332

Salman’s worked too πŸ™‚

IMG_0338

Next is buzzer πŸ™‚

IMG_0336

This one is quite easy πŸ™‚

IMG_0337

Capt. Fizhan helped Salman with the schematic because the buzzer wouldn’t work

IMG_0339

IMG_0340

After we got that one worked, we continued to ultrasonic sensor πŸ™‚

IMG_0341

IMG_0342 IMG_0343

Capt. Awa helped Kiran to find the correct source of code for ultrasonic sensor

IMG_0344

while Capt. Zaki working on Salman’s

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 24 Dec 2016

Standard

YesterdayΒ we learned a new component: seven segment πŸ™‚ This class started at 1 pm because there was another schedule in the morning. Not so many kids could make it to the class, but we had enough to start the class πŸ™‚

IMG_9120

Nafis was back after several weeks πŸ™‚ Welcome back Nafis πŸ™‚

IMG_9121

Farrell was ready to explore his new TFT display and connect it to a gyroscope πŸ™‚ He needs toΒ figure out how to makeΒ itΒ work before displaying the data readings from gyroscope.

IMG_9124 2

Nafis’ mom is an electrical engineer, so he really had a great help there πŸ™‚

IMG_9127

Capt. Fizhan helped Nafis to get started πŸ™‚

IMG_9131

We use common anode seven segment to display numbers from 0 to 9. Renald used common cathode one and it worked as well πŸ™‚

IMG_9132

Rezandra missed several classes, and it was great to see him in class again yesterday πŸ™‚

IMG_9135

Ren finished his really quick and started to explore how to input the number from serial monitor πŸ™‚

IMG_9136

And our Lead Captain was back too, Capt. Zaki πŸ™‚ He was really busy during his first year in high school, now he is catching up with the class to be able to assist the upcoming kids coding camp πŸ™‚ Farrell asked lots of technical things to Zaki πŸ™‚

IMG_9137

Captain Malik! πŸ™‚

IMG_9138

IMG_9143

Ren’s working nicely

IMG_9145 2

While Capt. Malik preferred to tinker with his new 8×8 dot matrix LED πŸ˜€

IMG_9147

Ok it worked and there’s so much thing we can do with this thing πŸ™‚

IMG_9149

Malik drew this cute creature

IMG_9150

Or smiley

IMG_9153

The next challenge for Malik is to make this object shift from left or right πŸ™‚

And the next challenge for the class is to enter a number from 0 – 9 from the serial monitor to be displayed on seven segment πŸ™‚

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 10 Dec 2016

Standard

Helloooo from ProCodeCG Kids Regular Class today πŸ™‚

Muhammad (the one with headphone) and Ozan (the one showing the back) came the earliest he helped setting up the room πŸ™‚ Thanks so much πŸ™‚

IMG_8150

We had a new kids today: welcome Vallo πŸ™‚

IMG_8151

Part of setting up before the class start πŸ˜€

IMG_8152

Captain on duty today: Capt. Awa πŸ™‚ He was in charge to give Vallo an intro to Arduino πŸ™‚

IMG_8154

Today we created a battery tester πŸ™‚ The schematic looked very technical but the kids learned to understand it πŸ™‚

IMG_8155

Awa is a dedicated an happy captain! Challenge for him means happiness, no worries and no stress πŸ˜‰

IMG_8159

Vallo and his father had just installed the Arduino IDE

IMG_8160

Areli had the code ready from the handout and ready to make the schematic

IMG_8161

Capt. Malik was so ready to do the project πŸ™‚

IMG_8162 2

Muhammad was excited to about the project πŸ™‚

IMG_8164 2

Welcome back Rheino! πŸ™‚ He had missed weeks of classes so he had to catch up very quickly about the project today πŸ™‚

IMG_8165

This one is doing his school project πŸ™‚

IMG_8167

Ozan was a bit shocked to see the schematic, but he finally got it πŸ™‚

IMG_8168

Rheino tried very hard

IMG_8169

he had to cope up πŸ™‚

IMG_8172

Awa was very patient helping Vallo with the code πŸ™‚

IMG_8173

While Areli’s worked πŸ™‚ Yeaay, the battery tester showed the correct value of the battery πŸ™‚ The status is high since it is a new one πŸ™‚

IMG_8176

Capt. Awa and Vallo. No one would believe kids could do amazing things like this if they have never seen what happens in ProCodeCG Kids Coding Class πŸ™‚

IMG_8184

Muhammad is so happy to finally be able to make his battery tester work πŸ™‚ There was some compiling problem saying that the Arduino IDE missing a readme.txt file so Jundy’s Dad helped Muhammad and it compiled πŸ˜€

IMG_8187

Fizhan interrogated Rhei for not coming to the class for a while πŸ˜€

IMG_8204

Next week we will add ProCodeCG LED to this project πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 26 Nov 2016

Standard

Okay today we created something more complicated, a schematic with ultrasonic sensor, LEDs (and resistors of course πŸ˜‰ and buzzer πŸ™‚

IMG_7252

Ozan had a headache already? πŸ˜€

IMG_7253

Darrell was getting ready to catch up after several weeks off from the class πŸ™‚
IMG_7256

Hello Zahran, Muhammad and Ren (these three are always together πŸ˜€ ), are you ready for the new schematic today? πŸ˜‰

IMG_7257

AreliΒ needed to check his LCD code and made sure it works just fine πŸ™‚
IMG_7262 IMG_7263

Farrell was so determined to continue his gyroscope project πŸ™‚

IMG_7265

Today’s schematic is quite complex so it took kids some time to prepare the components πŸ˜€

IMG_7267

The schematic requires patience and concentration. Very good for the kids to sharpen their logic and problem solving skill.
IMG_7268

Arduino programming stimulates the kids visually and non-visually. They have to make both the hardware and software work.

IMG_7269

And after a while, Reza showed up (and forgot to bring his toolkit LOL so he can use the big toolbox for this time πŸ˜€ )
IMG_7270

Farrell needed to downloaded the gyroscope library (MPU6050) before getting started

IMG_7272

This scene is what makes Saturday is worth waiting for πŸ™‚

IMG_7273

Ren’s finished it first (like usual) πŸ™‚

IMG_7274

With only 3 LEDs but it worked (3 more LED will be added later if he’s not bored because he ‘d done this one at home so it’s better for him to move to the next lesson :D)
IMG_7276

Reza’s finally worked. The ultrasonic sensor he was using wasn’t working properly so when it was replaced with Ren’s, it worked just fine (we have to claim the sensor to the store and claim for a new one πŸ˜‰ )

IMG_7284

Zahran’s worked too πŸ™‚
IMG_7285

This one is Muhammad’s πŸ™‚

IMG_7286

Farrell’s gyroscope schematic didn’t work because some wirings got mixed up. He fixed it
IMG_7288

and it worked, yeaaay!

IMG_7290 2

Since Reza had finished his, helped by Ren, he helped Darrell
IMG_7291

Darrell wasn’t really in the mood doing the schematic because it was quite complicated, and it took extra effort to check it πŸ˜€

IMG_7292

Yeeeayy, Ozan’s worked πŸ™‚
IMG_7296

Ok we’ve done a great job today, and ready to do more next week πŸ˜‰
