ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming

Standard

Our Arduino/ESPectro Programming class today 🙂

IMG_0708

IMG_0728 1

One of our extension cable didn’t work so Capt. Awa opened and checked it with voltmeter 🙂

IMG_0715

He found the source of problem and fixed it 🙂

IMG_0716

Took extra patience and some amount of perseverance to do this kind of job 😀

IMG_0717

IMG_0724

It took lots of positions too 😀

IMG_0725

And finally after several testing, Capt. Awa officially announced that the extension cable was working properly and ready to be used. Thanks so much Capt.!

IMG_0733

After got his technical support job done, Capt. Awa got back to his sonar project 🙂 He was experimenting with Parallax
IMG_0711//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0722

and its standard servo 🙂

IMG_0723

the ultrasonic was mounted on top of the servo

IMG_0778

Capt. Awa teamed up with Clarence because Clarence will develop the code to display the reading from Awa’s sonar system to a TFT display

IMG_0734 1

IMG_0735 1

A really great teamwork 🙂

IMG_0756

Clarence also has his own project, sorting algorithm visualization

IMG_0741

He added more features including serial monitor commands to run the sorting using any chosen algorithm

IMG_0770//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0771//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0755

IMG_0772

Then he started working on ultrasonic

IMG_0790

and the reading worked just fine

IMG_0787

IMG_0788

IMG_0789

Next is to add micro servo  🙂

IMG_0792

Ozan was still struggling with adding buzzer to ultrasonic counter

IMG_0727

The ultrasonic counter worked fine until he added a buzzer 😀

IMG_0720

We’ve done lots of debugging and try-and-retry attempts but it still didnt’ work 🙂 Have to try again next week 🙂

After the class: kids just wouldn’t stop 😀

IMG_0798

Friendship scenes after the class 🙂

IMG_0800

IMG_0795

Capt. Fizhan (corner) was given a project to design a logo for Bu Rieny (Coding Mom Batch-3) with Wibi (middle) and Ozan (right) accompanying 🙂

IMG_0796

Will be reporting more excitement 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 – 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 – 23 Sep 2017

Standard

Today we picked up where we left last week: making a micro servo works 🙂

IMG_8522

There were on only two kids working on Arduino/ESPectro Programming 🙂 This is Ozan

IMG_8502

He had successfully made micro servo works, and ready to add an ultrasonic sensor to activate the micro servo 🙂

IMG_8516

Nafis was working on the same thing

IMG_8519

IMG_8517

IMG_8509

IMG_8539

He added an ultrasonic to activate the micro servo and worked 😉

IMG_8538

Next week we will explore more things, and help the other kids to catch up 🙂

 

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! 😉

ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #93 – TuringSense – 6 Feb 2017

Standard

Today, Pak Bullitt Sesariza, Director of TuringSense Asia Lab shared to us about one of cutting-edge technology being developed by TuringSense 🙂

We had cute small guests

IMG_2192

and grown-ups too. All very curious about the topic today 🙂

IMG_2193

Preparations took a while 🙂

IMG_2194

Because the monitor wouldn’t cooperate with Pak Bullitt’s Macbook 🙂

IMG_2195

Pivot is a product by TuringSense

IMG_2196

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

Standard

Arduino Programming Day #2 🙂 We learned about sensors 🙂

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 🙂

IMG_0310

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

IMG_0311

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

IMG_0312

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

IMG_0313

Capt. Syahna before unloading her laptop and thick book 😀

IMG_0314

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

IMG_0315

Capt. BR moves his office too 😀

IMG_0324

Capt. Awa and mom also moved their office to the class 🙂 Yeaay the more the merrier 🙂

IMG_0347

IMG_0316

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

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 🙂

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 🙂

IMG_0332

Salman’s worked too 🙂

IMG_0338

Next is buzzer 🙂

IMG_0336

This one is quite easy 🙂

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 🙂

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

IMG_0345

😀

IMG_0346

IMG_0348

This is how Capt. Awa looks like when he cannot decide where to put a new sticker: on his laptop or on his toolbox 😀

IMG_0349

Salman’s ultrasonic didn’t work because some wirings are still not correct

IMG_0351

after some re-wiring, it worked 🙂

IMG_0352

Captain Corners 😀

IMG_0353

Capt. Awa assisting Salman. They’re in the same age 🙂 So cute 🙂

IMG_0354

Capt. Awa testing Kirana’s potentiometer with LED

IMG_0355

Salman is still tinkering with his ultrasonic with buzzer

IMG_0356 IMG_0357

IMG_0358

After checking on everybody Capt. Awa decided to do some experiment with a relay 🙂

IMG_0359

The last task for today is temperature and humidity sensor

IMG_0360

Kiran has made it work

IMG_0361

Salman will catch up on that one tomorrow 🙂

IMG_0362 2

We have gone through all of this today! Yaay

IMG_0350

This is a picture of Capt. Awa cleaning up the room LOL He ran away 😀

IMG_0363

Some games before going home 🙂

IMG_0364

Some screenshots 🙂
