ProCodeCG Regular Coding Class – ESPectro/Arduino Programming & Open Topics – 13 Jan 2018

Standard

Our regular coding class is always open for any kids interested to learn about technology and want to be a programmer/researcher 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Awa (left) was doing a research on reading objects around for robots using ultrasonic (Capt. Fizhan on the right was just looking around LOL)

Untitled

But first Awa wanted to show his latest project with ProCodeCG LED

Untitled

Untitled

Then moved on to the next project

Untitled

ultrasonic and motor servo

Untitled

the ultrasonic worked but the motor servo wouldn’t spin 😀

Untitled

apparently two cables was switched and it worked after we reversed it 😀

Untitled

Firaas (yellow shirt) was ready to learn GameMaker 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Azriel (blue shirt) was assigned the task to teach Firaas 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

the sprite

Untitled

the wall

Untitled

the first game created by Firaas yaaay 🙂 Firaas will learn to create another game next week 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Cinta was still doing the research about creating a story generator with Python 😉

Untitled

Untitled

Cinta discussed the content of the database to create the story with another writer 😀

Untitled

And another one joining in 🙂

Untitled

These three are brilliant girls who love writing 🙂

Untitled

And Cinta’s code is a combination of Cinta’s writing and coding skill 🙂 Nice!

Untitled

For next week Cinta wanted to create a game in Python 🙂 We’ll see what game it will be 🙂

Untitled

Ain and Awa explored lots of structures with RedStone in Minecraft

Untitled

Ain created lots of things in there

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Even rockets 🙂

Untitled

and infinite rails 🙂

Untitled

Azriel was also exploring structure with RedStone in Minecraft

Untitled

He created a dispenser than can give you meat and water

Untitled

Untitled

A seven segment display

Untitled

Untitled

and more 🙂

Untitled

And we have Sulaiman joining the regular class yaay 🙂 Warming up with Minecraft Hour of Code

Untitled

Sulaiman did it very well because he’d done this with Thunkable when he was taking Creating Apps topic on the last Coding Camp 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

We download the requirement and setup the computer while Sulaiman was working with Minecraft Hour of Code, and when he finished, we’re ready to go 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Ain (wearing hat) helped Sulaiman with the setup

Untitled

Sulaiman learned to create simple structures using JavaScript code in Minecraft

Untitled

 

Untitled

 

Untitled

Next time he will write his own code and create more complex structures like this one 🙂

Untitled

Until next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming & Open Topics – 6 Jan 2018

Standard

Hello Saturday class 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

We had a newcomer: Firaas 🙂

Untitled

There was a problem with Firaas’ laptop: it wouldn’t let browser to browse 😀 Capt. Azriel (green shirt) tried to help

Untitled

Capt. Faris (dark grey ProCodeCG jacket) and Capt. Ain (grey shirt) helped too

Untitled

It took 3 captains and we still couldn’t figure it out 😀

Untitled

So we took different laptop and let Firaas started learning basic programming with Minecraft Hour of Code peacefully 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Yep, it’s done! 🙂

Untitled

and then Blockly Games

Untitled

Next, CodeCombat 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Ain helped

Untitled

Firaas learned for 3 straight hours 🙂

Untitled

So he deserved some Minecraft time 5-10 mins before the class ended 🙂

Untitled

Ain learned a new thing: BlocklyCraft 🙂 A drag-and-drop Minecraft Modding programming 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Faris gave Ain a jump start 🙂

Untitled

Ain will be given the task to explore BlocklyCraft 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Nafis was assigned to debug his project all over again 😀

Untitled

start from scratch

Untitled

ready to test

Untitled

the LCD didn’t work

Untitled

but the ultrasonic sensor worked

Untitled

trying to make LCD works

Untitled

Untitled

it did, and counting 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

then we added buzzer, and it worked 🙂 we still hadn’t time to figure out how to make it beep when it counts 🙂

Untitled

Cinta was doing another challenge in Python

Untitled

Untitled

Creating a Hangman game 🙂

Untitled

These girls collaborating to create the questions 😀

Untitled

Untitled

The result

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

And for the next session, Cinta wanted to do some Minecraft Modding 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

While Azriel had a bad headache LOL

Untitled

We were trying to figure out this code to create a triangle in Minecraft using BlocklyCraft

Untitled

We had tried every possible ways

Untitled

And yet it still didn’t work

Untitled

And kept giving us false result :((

Untitled

Untitled

So we called Faris for help

Untitled

And he found out that something was wrong with the converter and it kept crashing the server

Untitled

Apparently the converter from Blockly to JavaScript didn’t work smoothly.

Untitled

So we assigned another task to Azriel: creating structures with RedStone

Untitled

And our research, conducted by Capt. Faris had shown lots of progress

Untitled

now the algorithm can count objects

Untitled

So we add another data sets

Untitled

we used bigger data set for higher precision

Untitled

comparison of left: larger dataset, right: smaller dataset

Untitled

the counting

Untitled

Untitled

the dataset

Untitled

how to change dataset

Untitled

we need place to run the training because the last time we tried, Google Cloud Engine didn’t work 😦

Untitled

Will be reporting again next week 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro/Arduino Programming & Open Topics – 30 Dec 2017

Standard

This is how we spend our holiday 🙂

IMG_5836

Ozan

IMG_5811

and Nafis is catching up with their ultrasonic counter with buzzer and LED project

IMG_5816

The debugging took weeks, we probably will change the project just to clear our head and will get back to it later 😀

IMG_5817

Ozan even had to compare his code line by line with Nafis’

IMG_5823

IMG_5830

IMG_5831

Cinta started a new project:

IMG_5819

The project is a textbased advanture game

IMG_5833

we design the flow of the story

IMG_5832

the code

IMG_5858 3

IMG_5859

IMG_5860

Azriel, got a new task: to explore BlocklyCraft: to code in Minecraft with drag-and-drop 🙂

IMG_5829

Capt. Faris helped Ajil getting started 🙂

IMG_5835

IMG_5837

Now we can do Minecraft Modding just by drag-and-drop 🙂

IMG_5838

IMG_5839

this is how to create wall with certain width and length from cobblestone

IMG_5841

we compile the blocks from the browser, localhost:7070

IMG_5842

and then run the code on Minecraft by typing /jsp <name of the code>

IMG_5843

how to create a paddock

IMG_5845

with horses 😀

IMG_5853

IMG_5857

a two floors building

IMG_5861

 

IMG_5862

IMG_5874 3

we also can code in JavaScript (like with ScriptCraft) and in XML too 🙂

IMG_5876

We really annoyed by this “Mouvement” block and we decided to change it

IMG_5877 2

so we modified the file 😀

IMG_5879

so now it’s correctly displayed “Movement” 😉

IMG_5880

the file is in this directory

IMG_5881

IMG_5882

lots of progress today, Azriel 🙂

IMG_5883

so now the platform is ready, Azriel is given task to explore more! 😉

IMG_5884

IMG_5867 3

Capt. Faris is working hard on our TensorFlow research

IMG_5821

IMG_5824

He’s running a TensorFlow training on Google Cloud Engine

IMG_5871

 

IMG_5888

the library we’re using

IMG_5905

Looking forward to the next class 🙂 Expecting more kids to come so we can do more research and projects 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 16 Dec 2017

Standard

Hello, welcome back to our regular ESPectro programming class 🙂

IMG_4411

Ozan still had a project to do: ultrasonic counter with buzzer and LED 🙂

IMG_4404

the ultrasonic and LCD work fine but the buzzer didn’t 😀

IMG_4405

And we had Nadine start learning ESPectro programming today 🙂

IMG_4406

And Ozan became Capt. on duty today to help Nadine learning 🙂

IMG_4407

IMG_4408

The first task is to make the LED onboard blink, and the LED on breadbroad blink 🙂

IMG_4409

IMG_4412

Done! 🙂

IMG_4422

And then adding more LEDs 🙂

IMG_4423

IMG_4435

Worked nicely 🙂

IMG_4438 2

Nadine wanted to learn how to use multimeter 🙂

IMG_4439 2

She learned how to check resistor value and test LEDs 🙂

IMG_4441

Look at that! This girl is so eager to learn this kind of thing 🙂 Cool 🙂

IMG_4442

Capt. Ozan was busy creating the code to make the LED blinking alternately 🙂 Well done today, Capt! 🙂 :*

IMG_4443

There’s always something new to learn and lots of progress each time 🙂 See you on the next! 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 9 Dec 2017

Standard

Our open topics class today 🙂

IMG_3911

IMG_3890

Ain came up today with a breakthrough: creating some physics simulation using GameMaker Studio 🙂

IMG_3882

IMG_3881

We’re going to see if this tools can make better physics simulation than our GameMaker Lite 🙂

IMG_3876

The workspace

IMG_3877

The performance graph

IMG_3878

Creating objects

IMG_3885

Ain was given challenge to simulate a car running down the hill for the next class 😀

IMG_3899

Capt. Cinta is back 🙂 As happy as usual, coding while singing 😀

IMG_3883

Today Cinta said she missed Python coding so she decided to code in Python again yaaay! We created some games in Python not so long ago and Cinta wants to recreate it 🙂

IMG_3889

IMG_3893

IMG_3894

This is what we call “happy coding face” 😀

IMG_3896

So glad that finally someone of our kids working on Python again 🙂

IMG_3904

And for the second session Cinta explored Minecraft and startet to build things in there

IMG_3912

Cinta was challenged to create running text in Minecraft 😉

IMG_3913

IMG_3914

Meanwhile, Capt. Faris was given a task to do some research with Python Pandas and Tensorflow 🙂

IMG_3891

Faris has been very reliable about whatever tasks given to him

IMG_3897

We had some problems with plotting data with Matplotlib earlier, and Faris should fix that

IMG_3903

He even tried Jupyter to make it work

Bildschirmfoto 2017-12-09 um 9.51.56 AM

The data had been gathered and displayed but cannot be plotted

IMG_3906

IMG_3923

It worked on Faris’ laptop but not on Mac

IMG_3909

After some investigation and virtualenv testing, plus exploring directory and so on, Faris triumphantly discovered how make it work: using python3 😀

Yas! The data plot is come into view finally 🙂 Thanks Faris 🙂

 

IMG_3922

IMG_3910

Ajil is a persistent and focus kid. He started to create games in Minecraft 🙂

IMG_3916

He had to write long lines of code 🙂

IMG_3924

IMG_3925

IMG_3925

IMG_3934

IMG_3933

And we finally make Guessing Game work in Minecraft (Capt. Faris helped a lot)

IMG_3935 2

Well done, Ajil, we’re going to make more games next week 🙂

IMG_3936

Vian was doing projects with Ain

IMG_3917

They’re discussing all the time 😀

IMG_3918

Vian was being supported by the whole family (Tetru wasn’t there): Ain, Empati and Tiga (they’re all brothers) 😀

IMG_3931

While Capt. Azriel teamed up with Jundy

IMG_3930

IMG_3915

Jundy was thinking about how to make running text in Minecraft

IMG_3937

He was experimenting with piston

IMG_3938

The problem is apparently piston only has limited number of blocks to push

IMG_3939

So we probably should come up with something else

IMG_3940

Jundy tried many possibilities

IMG_3942

IMG_3944

And make simulations to see how far a piston would push a block

IMG_3945

But still didn’t work and we will think about another way doing it next week 🙂

IMG_3947

Captains doing research (proud :))

IMG_3892IMG_3895

IMG_3943

So proud to have these kids 🙂 See you again next week 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 9 Dec 2017

Standard

This is what our Saturdays made of 🙂

Captains preparing the class 🙂 ProCodeCG doesn’t hire programmers. We raise them 🙂

These are (from left to right): Ain (going to start his first Captain duty on coding camp next week), Capt. Azriel, Tiga (Ain’s little brother) and Capt. Awa 🙂

IMG_4024

Thanks so much for preparing the class 🙂 :*

IMG_4023

Capt. Awa is in the middle of his project: building a radar system for navigation 🙂

IMG_3879

He was going to disassemble an AroX robot and took some parts of it for his project

IMG_3880

We’re going to use ultrasonic sensors and servo

IMG_3886

And some codes, of course

IMG_3898

Awa’s workplace 😀

IMG_3905

After watching some tutorials, we decided to disassembly a microservo and modify it to be able to rotate 360 degrees continously

IMG_3926

We had to cut something out of these gears

IMG_3928

and put them altogether again

IMG_3929

Well, this requires lots of patience and hard work 😉

IMG_3932

IMG_4018

IMG_4020

Ozan was still investigating why the ultrasonic counter wouldn’t work with LCD

IMG_3884

We’ve tried many configurations and codes

IMG_3888

Even changed the LCD because this one wouldn’t turn on

IMG_3887

There are days when things are so frustrating but we will keep working on it, yes Ozan? 😀

IMG_3900

Even if we have to start all over again from the beginning 😀

IMG_4021

The class

IMG_3901

And a little coding mom reunion 🙂

IMG_3919

It was such a perfect Saturday 🙂 Can’t wait to continue our research again next Saturday 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 2 Dec 2017

Standard

Happy Saturday Coding 🙂

IMG_3373

Danen was back in the class to continue his game and create the new one 😉

IMG_3347 IMG_3348

IMG_3365

So Danen created another game today 🙂 A bumping race car 😀 He said he want to make a flappy bird game next week 🙂

IMG_3380

Danen, Ain and Awa discussing about the game 🙂

IMG_3350

Ain was back 🙂 He created another cool game that attracts object to the central object

IMG_3351

IMG_3388

A very dynamic and interesting game

IMG_3353 IMG_3355

Ain was challenged to create a game with an object can attract certain objects like coins with certain value 🙂

IMG_3359

And Ain came up with this magic stick, still in the progress 🙂

IMG_3369

Capt. Faris was really busy doing the research 🙂 He worked with 2 computers at the same time 😀 *like most of the times LOL

IMG_3357

Faris was doing a research about instagram crawling and object recognition with tensorflow

IMG_3361

IMG_3370

IMG_3383

He also found some interesting algorithm for anagram 😀

IMG_3384

Adin worked really hard to make tetris with GameMaker

IMG_3360

 

IMG_3363

Ain and Capt. Azriel helped to debug Adin’s code

IMG_3364

IMG_3368

IMG_3374

Until at some point we decided to move on and will get back to tetris later 😀 Adin was given the same challenge as Ain: to create a game where there is an object that attracts certain objects

IMG_3391

And this is what Adin came up with

IMG_3400

We’re still thinking about the details and the rules of the game 🙂

IMG_3401

IMG_3410

While Nanin was busy creating a new apps 🙂

IMG_3371

Nanin wanted to create an app with buttons that can display happy and sad panda 🙂

IMG_3381

The app 🙂

IMG_3398

IMG_3399

IMG_3415

IMG_3416

Vian was very excited creating a new game (that he wouldn’t let us to take a pic of because it is confidential – not released yet :D)

IMG_3372

IMG_3386

IMG_3387

Vian consulted the game with Ain and Tiga, a lot 🙂 They seemed really happy to exchanged ideas 🙂

IMG_3385

IMG_3392

Finally, the result 😀

IMG_3393

Tyo made lots of progress with his Java project: generating and printing invoice

IMG_3378

IMG_3390

But Tyo wasn’t really happy with the layout

IMG_3377

The code

IMG_3379

so we asked Capt. Faris to help

IMG_3395

It’s better now 🙂 But Tyo still wants some improvements 🙂

IMG_3407

Jundy was still working on his secure building project 🙂

IMG_3394

He’s also has the scrolling text in the building in the making 🙂

IMG_3396

So many interesting things happen today 🙂 Thank you kids, see you next week 🙂 ❤
