Isn’t it impressive to see an 8th grader can be very focus doing this thing like an undergrad trying to finish his final project?

IMG_2828

IMG_2830

What the kids have to learn is that it is ok to make mistakes. And don’t worry if the project is not ready on time because this exhibition is not only about finished work only but also those in progress πŸ™‚ Process is more important than result πŸ™‚

This is a cutting edge research, many people eager to learn. And our 8th grader Captain has mastered it for months πŸ™‚

IMG_2829

Koosha was also worked really hard to make his elevator simulator work. Too bad there was some problems with the library because this project is quite complex and requires lots of modules to be integrated.

IMG_2832

It is not about fail or success. It’s is about working hard to solve problems. Doesn’t matter if it is not work yet. At the end we will figure it out.

IMG_2833

ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 15 Aug 2018

Standard

The exhibition is coming and we have to work really hard to finish this πŸ™‚

We have modified the code hundred of times and still the robot didn’t move at all

IMG_2639

We decided to add 4 AA batteries and change the development board

IMG_2640

IMG_2641

The layout needed some re-arrangement after we added more components and tested the motors. We checked everything: the power, the motors (both worked fine separately), the board, the cables, the driver. But still didn’t work.

IMG_2643

We worked until it was dark and we had to call it a day and continue again the day after πŸ™‚ We will find the problem and fix it! πŸ™‚
