ProCodeCG – Kids Private Class – Basic Electronics – 11 April 2019

Standard

This is our plan for today: creating a timer with 2 or 3 buttons πŸ™‚

IMG_9372

Tyo is so ready πŸ˜‰

IMG_9373

It requires lots of coding modifications

IMG_9375

IMG_9376

The wiring is ready but not yet the coding

IMG_9377

We added more details and features

IMG_9379

We still have to fix the information printed to the display

IMG_9380

and the third button is still not working

IMG_9383

We should add clear display in the loop so it wouldn’t get overlapped characters like this

IMG_9385

the up and down button is working well

IMG_9388

IMG_9390

We will deal with the third button on the next class πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 6 April 2019

Standard

Saturday’s Coding Squad πŸ™‚

IMG_9014

Capt. Faris is given a project to detect hoax and real news

IMG_8976

plus investigating the neural nets architecture being used by our machine learning platform

IMG_9039

The codes

IMG_9040 IMG_9052

Hafiz’s Plant vs Zombie Game is getting better and better πŸ˜‰

IMG_8977 IMG_8981

we need to add lots codes to add more features to the game

IMG_8990 IMG_8991

IMG_8993 IMG_8994

Now the game has the randomly generated points (the yellow dots)

IMG_8998 IMG_8999

it also now has flowers that can shoot peas πŸ™‚

IMG_9033

Hafiz has to repeat the process for lots of sprites

IMG_9035

and then define scoring and rules of the game. Lots of hard work but fun πŸ™‚

IMG_9053

Sulaiman is going to choose his own project today πŸ™‚

IMG_8978

We borrowed Aidia’s book to find a suitable project for Sul πŸ™‚

IMG_9004 IMG_9003

IMG_9006 IMG_9010

IMG_9012

After a while, Sul finally chose this one πŸ™‚

IMG_9013

The result πŸ™‚

IMG_9026

and then Sul started to create running text structure like Capt. Awa was doing earlier

IMG_9055

Syadad started creating games today πŸ™‚

IMG_8979

The first sprite

IMG_8986 IMG_8987

Object movement test

IMG_8989

The other sprite to be eaten by the first sprite

IMG_9005

room setup

IMG_9017

Yayyy, Syadad’s first game πŸ™‚

IMG_9037

more object arrangements and background

IMG_9042

We will add scoring in the next class πŸ˜‰

IMG_9050

Aidia is improving her sophisticated locker system design πŸ˜‰

IMG_8980 IMG_8984

Aidia added more structures to her world

IMG_8985 IMG_8988

She brought some books for references

IMG_9009

So whatever Aidia created in her world is pure her creativity; she combined lots of ideas into unique structures

IMG_9028

IMG_9034

Capt. Awa asked for a challenge and so the challenge was creating a running text structure

IMG_8983

No one has ever created this before because of it’s tricky nature. By using piston the furthest shift is 7 blocks

IMG_8995

But Awa wouldn’t be a Captain if he wasn’t qualified πŸ™‚ He brilliantly overcome the limitation by making it circular πŸ™‚

IMG_9020

The structure. Unbelievable. Impressive. Outstanding. πŸ™‚

IMG_9022

Awa tried several structures before finally found the correct one

IMG_9023

Minecraft can be used to learn many things including logic, problem solving, creativity, including mechanical structures and electronics logics πŸ˜‰

IMG_9025

Experimenting with the machine

IMG_9032

adding shield to make it waterproof πŸ˜€

IMG_9054

Andra is still going through the intro to coding πŸ™‚

IMG_9008

Today he learned about function through pattern

IMG_9018

IMG_9019 IMG_9029

And then moved on to more challenges. Next week Andra will learn visual coding with actual coding scripts πŸ™‚

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

Standard

Tyo couldn’t wait to continue his timer project πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜‰

IMG_8833

Next week we’re going to put all together πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Weekdays Coding Class – 4 April 2019

Standard

Midweek coding time πŸ˜‰

IMG_8800

Abil executing the plans from last week

IMG_8801

including adding more backgrounds

IMG_8805

IMG_8804

IMG_8808

and sprites

IMG_8810

and the list of assets keeps expanding πŸ˜€

IMG_8816

Abil’s game now is a multiplayer game πŸ™‚ We’re still figuring out how to display two different scores πŸ˜‰

IMG_8815

Kinan has great plans too

IMG_8802

Kinan made a very detailed and nice background

IMG_8806 IMG_8807

and going to make the characters being able to jump from one world to another πŸ™‚

IMG_8809 IMG_8812

She added more characters and interactions, making the game more complex but that’s good πŸ˜‰

IMG_8817

There’s no way to create a good game in a short time, we’re still going to work on this game next week πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 30 Mar 2019

Standard

Coding crowd this Saturday πŸ˜‰

IMG_8533

IMG_8555 IMG_8556

IMG_8557

Hafiz is working on Plant vs Zombie Game. It is quite difficult and takes more time to develop than the previous ones

IMG_8509

Preparing the sprites

IMG_8505

the assets

IMG_8506

each sprite is carefully designed πŸ™‚

IMG_8528 IMG_8534

the background

IMG_8535

IMG_8554

Testing plant placing

IMG_8560

The objects are now placed neatly in the room πŸ˜‰

IMG_8561

More objects added πŸ™‚ Nice! Next is to add scoring and spawning the zombie randomly πŸ™‚

IMG_8587

Sam’s work is getting harder and harder to do since the target is to release this app to PlayStore

IMG_8507

We need to think how to manage the screens and the size of the app

IMG_8520

We are discussing the screen flow and the best UI/UX design especially to show the user the progress of memorizing the Juz’Amma

IMG_8523

we just realized that Sam’s app has too many screens and that makes the app size grows. The more the screens, the harder it is to manage

IMG_8524

Capt. Faris had his own app developed with Android Studio, and he shared his architecture to us

IMG_8529

it is time to throw in database πŸ˜‰ and the trick is to create limited screen, and reload the view from the database

IMG_8530

so Sam has to learn about accessing TinyDB πŸ˜€

IMG_8545

It leaves him like this LOL

IMG_8583

Fadhlan, stop eating the candy and start to work! πŸ˜€

IMG_8508

We have to work on this: testing the right and left motor plus the controller, and make it navigates

IMG_8519

Working hardddd there you go πŸ˜€

IMG_8536

IMG_8537

Capt. Awa helped us testing the robot *and ran away when the robot was activated because it refuse to avoid obstacles LOL but at least we know that button, LED, buzzer, wheels, are working and we just need to check the ultrasonic before adding compass and bluetooth module πŸ˜€

IMG_8569

Capt. Faris and his research πŸ˜€ He was given a challenge to learn how to prevent shoplifting with camera object detection

IMG_8510 IMG_8525 IMG_8546

Capt. Awa, brought new toys!

IMG_8511

The new stuffs have the same size as a coin!

IMG_8512

wowww, modules for TinyDuino

IMG_8513

IMG_8514

IMG_8515

But we still couldn’t get these little mates to work :(( We suspected the USB-UART driver or probably the port

IMG_8526

So Capt. Awa explored another thing: basic electronics simulation

IMG_8542 IMG_8550

IMG_8553 IMG_8558

and then helping us with the robot

IMG_8570

the robot was going in circles so Capt. Awa helped us switching the polarity πŸ™‚

IMG_8572

Testing is done for today (too many things being hit by the robot LOL)

IMG_8574

Badi’s website is ready to be uploaded to public πŸ™‚ Today Badi will buy domain and hosting and upload it

IMG_8521

We’re searching for the best option, and after we got one, Pavilion19 will have a website πŸ™‚

IMG_8540

Aidia is so excited about her Minecraft Project today πŸ™‚

IMG_8517

She brought lots of books for references πŸ™‚

IMG_8518

IMG_8538

IMG_8559

Aidia does both design and mechanical structures in Minecraft

IMG_8564

IMG_8566

Look at this: she created a locker system below a beautiful building she designed πŸ˜‰ How nice!!!

IMG_8584

Inside the locker corridor πŸ™‚ Next week we’re going to add button to get a specific locker sent to a specific person πŸ˜‰

IMG_8585

Al is going to make another animation, yaaay πŸ™‚

IMG_8522 IMG_8527

He’s getting better πŸ™‚

IMG_8541

Al finds references on the internet to get more ideas

IMG_8551

And he created animation for educational purposes like this one πŸ™‚

IMG_8552

IMG_8589

We have a newcomer: welcome Andra πŸ™‚

IMG_8543

Like the others, Andra had to go through the intro to programming

IMG_8549 IMG_8563

One challenge down

IMG_8565

Now another one, and Andra can do it very quickly with lots of excitement πŸ™‚

IMG_8567

IMG_8580

Yogi came with the same problem from the last class: displaying a score that follows the object πŸ™‚

IMG_8547

This one worked for Game Maker Studio 2 but not with version 1 so we tried so many ways and still couldn’t figure it out. Don’t worry Yogi we’ll work it out

IMG_6283

Syadad is now ready for a code combat πŸ˜‰

IMG_8562

Syadad is very excited with this challenge, especially because now he has a friend: Andra πŸ™‚

IMG_8568

Next week Syadad will be ready for creating games yaay!!!

IMG_8123

Sam is still working on adding more features and improving the UI/UX of his Juz’amma App πŸ™‚

IMG_8069

IMG_8082

We’re finding ways to give user the info about how many verses have been memorized

IMG_8088

There are some alternatives: with progress bar, with checklist, or numbers

IMG_8089

For now each verse has a check list, the next is how to show the summary πŸ˜‰

IMG_8129

Badi has made excellent progress!
