ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Basic Electronics – 8 May 2019

Standard

Two missions for today: to explore sound sensor and PIR sensor

IMG_1011

we’re going to test this sound sensor to detect the beat of a music and make a LED blinking the beat 🙂

the wiring

IMG_1012

the code

IMG_1013

serial monitor

IMG_1014 IMG_1015

setting up the sensitivity of the sensor

IMG_1016

and after that, it works 🙂 *find the link of the videos on the bottom of the page

IMG_1018

PIR sensor, took some time to warm it up

IMG_1020

so far, after testing 2 PIR sensors, ultrasonic sensor is more reliable 🙂

ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Basic Electronics – 2 April 2019

Standard

Tyo couldn’t wait to continue his timer project 🙂

IMG_8822

but we have to do it step-by-step: installing and testing the components separately and make sure they are working properly before assembling them into the final project.

The first one to test is the button for setting up the timer

IMG_8824

ok buttons for setting up variables are working

IMG_8825

next is designing the view 🙂 Tyo wants to have scrolling text so we test the scrolling function

IMG_8828

this one is also working

IMG_8830

the next is to set up multifunctional button for starting and stopping the timer

IMG_8832

Tyo had to do lots of modifications to the code, and his skill and experience in Java programming comes in handy 😉

IMG_8833

Next week we’re going to put all together 🙂

ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Basic Electronics – 28 March 2019

Standard

Tyo has chosen a project for today: a timer with buttons and LCD 😉

8DD0B730-B8F8-4936-B437-B992FC9374CD IMG_8361

It requires lot so of modification from the latest work

IMG_8362

The schematic

IMG_8363

Testing and debugging

IMG_8365 IMG_8366

IMG_8367

All is working well, the button will start and stop the timer and the buzzer. Next Tyo will add another button to set up the timer and make it count down 😉

ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Basic Electronics – 21 March 2019

Standard

Today Tyo learns how to use an LCD I2C 🙂

IMG_7949

IMG_7946

IMG_7945

The “Hello World” 🙂

IMG_7947

And then we’re adding an ultrasonic sensor and will send the readings to the LCD

IMG_7951

Tyo had to combine the ultrasonic sensor code with the LCD I2C code

IMG_7952

Debugging the cables

IMG_7953

The target today is done 😉 For the next project Tyo wants to make a timer with LCD I2C and a button to start and stop it 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 14 March 2019

Standard

Our target today is to test radar readings of the robot

IMG_7558 IMG_7565

Instead of using 3 ultrasonic sensors we decide to use a micro servo and one ultrasonic sensor for the robot to navigate and reading the environment, to simplify the inputs and the data processing

IMG_7559

Fadhlan has to make sure every components have been placed correctly and working well

IMG_7560

The ultrasonic sensor is still not reading. This is the pair of degrees and distance. The distance readings are still zero

IMG_7562

the radar

IMG_7563

after we fix the ultrasonic sensor, and it reads the correct distance

IMG_7566

now the radar detects the objects around

IMG_7568

Next we will make the robot navigates and creates map 😉

Tyo’s project for today: exploring ultrasonic sensor 🙂

IMG_7539 IMG_7540

Ultrasonic sensor and buzzer

IMG_7542 IMG_7543

Modifying the code to add a LED

IMG_7545

Ultrasonic sensor, buzzer and LED

IMG_7546

Ultrasonic sensor, buzzer and LEDs that will indicate how close the obstacle is

IMG_7548

The closer the obstacle, the more LEDs are ON

IMG_7549

This is how Tyo debug the circuit 😀

IMG_7551 IMG_7553

After everything is done, we deserve some treats 😉

IMG_7556

Next week we will explore LCD 🙂

ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Machine Learning – 22 Feb 2019

Standard

Reza has started learning to create a ChatBot in Python in the last private class. Today he’s going to explore more ideas, but the result is the same, to create a chatbot for teaching people about on subjects 🙂

IMG_6219

The student management dashboard, with Reza had just been added

Projects for each students can be monitored 🙂
