IMG_5738 IMG_5739

Isma’ill worked in team with Faisal πŸ™‚

IMG_5716

Isma’ill do the coding and Faisal do the wiring

IMG_5725

Their project today is to use an LDR sensor to activate a LED. When it is dark then the LED will be activated and it will be off when there is light

IMG_5733

The code

IMG_5750

The next project is LCD πŸ™‚

IMG_5776

ok this also worked, next time we will display sensor readings

IMG_5780

Faisal worked in team with Isma’ill πŸ™‚ He’s responsible to do the wiring

IMG_5717

teamwork

IMG_5741

testing the circuit and worked nicely

IMG_5742

next project is LCD

IMG_5782

that worked fine as well πŸ™‚

IMG_5781

Hanif made huge progress today πŸ™‚

IMG_5722

IMG_5718

He keeps adding improvements to the game

IMG_5726

including awesome animations πŸ™‚

IMG_5727

We tried every possible ways to improve the game, this time to add score that follows the object

IMG_5757

the drag and drop view

IMG_5762

the code. The score is showing now but it still not the way we wanted it πŸ˜€ Going to fix it next week πŸ˜‰

IMG_5775

Shaby will learn programming with CodeCombat today

IMG_5719

It is like playing game but it is teaching us how to solve challenges with lines of codes

IMG_5735

We have to type in the code on the right windows and see how it works on the left window

IMG_5748

Capt. Bullit helped Shaby to get through the more difficult levels

IMG_5759

How Shaby has gone so far πŸ™‚ Excellent progress πŸ™‚

IMG_5764

Captain on Duty: Capt. Bullitt. He’s getting better at teaching and controlling the class now πŸ˜‰

IMG_5720

Khalis continued his Blockly journey

IMG_5721

Today is to learn how to bring that bird back to the nest after hunting some worms πŸ™‚

IMG_5744

This teaches about direction in angles and x y axis

IMG_5745

Surprisingly, Khalis already knows how to modify the script (in HTML/JavaScript) to change the appearence on the browser πŸ™‚

IMG_5752

He opened View Page Source and modify the code to see the result on the browser πŸ™‚

IMG_5753

Like this one, the “tujuh” word was supposed to be a number πŸ™‚ So this kid already know where to modify πŸ˜€ Next time he can start to learn web programming πŸ˜‰

IMG_5756

IMG_5763

The next topic is to learn coding with music πŸ™‚

IMG_5772

Khalis had to put the right notes to get the right song πŸ™‚

IMG_5774

Andra finished all the levels of CodeCombat today πŸ™‚

IMG_5734

He is certainly very good in coding and challenges πŸ™‚

IMG_5736

Andra can figure out almost all of the challenges given

IMG_5737

including those difficult ones

IMG_5749

He understands the code line by line πŸ™‚

IMG_5760

And kept going on until he finished all the levels

IMG_5761

IMG_5769

Arsa was also learning with Blockly but he chose the Pond

IMG_5747

this teaches about distance and angles and looping πŸ™‚

IMG_5746

He also tried Turtle

IMG_5755

and went back to the opening puzzle

IMG_5765

Before he finally very interested in creating animation πŸ™‚

IMG_5766

In this section we are supposed to copy the shapes and make it moves

IMG_5767

Once we get the shapes right, we can code it to make animations, like a movie

IMG_5768

We also have to put the duration of each move

IMG_5770

Very challenging and interesting and Arsa made lots of progress he must be proud of today πŸ˜‰

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™‚

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˜‰ ❀
