ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 1 June 2019

Standard

Hello Saturday Coding Squad πŸ™‚

IMG_2361 IMG_2373

we got this little buddies coming again to the class, how cute πŸ™‚

IMG_2357

Fadhlan’s saga still continues πŸ˜€

IMG_2335

a brand new shiny robot πŸ™‚

IMG_2334

very neat! πŸ˜‰

IMG_2333

Fadhlan is going to test the power source for the robot today

IMG_2337

IMG_2363

IMG_2393

We are testing several codes to the robot

IMG_2362

IMG_2398

The robot now can send ultrasonic readings via bluetooth to this laptop

IMG_2399

now testing ultrasonic reading

IMG_2410

make sure the data format is correct

IMG_2411

and create a map based on the data

IMG_2412

the robot works well except one thing: we need less voltage because we have just crashed the robot because it moved to fast πŸ˜€

IMG_2415

Sam has lists to do in finishing the app

IMG_2336

after uploading all the asset to the app, Sam has to create logo for the app πŸ˜€

IMG_2347

The code is A LOT πŸ™‚ Hang on Sam, we’re going to finish this very soon πŸ™‚

IMG_2349

Al is going to finish 2 projects today

IMG_2346

One is the alien language project

IMG_2350

the code will make the green monster follow what we say πŸ™‚

IMG_2351

when we say left, it will move to the left and vice versa πŸ˜‰

IMG_2352

the next project

IMG_2402

IMG_2416

is to give tourists info about recommended places πŸ™‚ Awesome Al πŸ™‚

IMG_2417

Capt. Awa’s plan today is to test the TinyDuino

IMG_2354

while also teaching πŸ™‚

IMG_2364

This is the TinyDuino with LED module and battery module

IMG_2388

The TinyDuino is in the middle. On the left side is the battery module and on the right side is the LED module

IMG_2389

Capt. Awa is discussing TinyDuino with Koosha to figure out how it works

IMG_2414

Wibi is making a lot of progress today πŸ™‚

IMG_2355

He’s given a task to create as many structures as he can in Minecraft πŸ™‚

IMG_2382

like connecting hallway

IMG_2384

basement

IMG_2391 IMG_2392

secret passage

IMG_2395

a glass roof for the basement

IMG_2396

adding door for entering the house properly πŸ™‚

IMG_2408

Ryan is also learning the same things as Wibi

IMG_2356

only Ryan will prefer more experiments with structures πŸ˜€

IMG_2358

IMG_2383

IMG_2390 IMG_2359

Capt. Faris

IMG_2360

and his recent research

IMG_2377

a super cutting edge technology

IMG_2378

an algorithm that can make living portraits from just ONE sample picture

IMG_2379

we still finding out about the algorithm

IMG_2380

that can make Marylin Monroe, Einstein and even Monalisa talk! *scary

IMG_2381

Koosha

IMG_2372

Koosha is tinkering with MSDOS and QBASIC πŸ˜€

IMG_2385

IMG_2386

and then helping Capt. Awa with the TinyDuino

IMG_2407

we did some debugging to make it work

IMG_2404

IMG_2401

and it finally works!

IMG_2403

thanks so much Koosha! we just haven’t figuring out yet how to make the LED module works πŸ˜‰

IMG_2405

and then Koosha get back to Minecraft Arduino project πŸ™‚

IMG_2420

with this complex redstone and command block configuration πŸ˜€

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 25 May 2019

Standard

ProCodeCG Research Center πŸ˜‰ Look at how many brains working on many projects πŸ™‚

IMG_1931 IMG_1932

IMG_1959

Wibi has just joined the class πŸ™‚

IMG_1916

Wibi will start to learn coding by playing Minecraft

IMG_1928 IMG_1974

Ryan has also joined the class Β and learning the same thing as Wibi. Kids in their age start learning basic programming skills by building things so they will learn about shapes, geometry, repetition, pattern etc. πŸ™‚

IMG_1917 IMG_1925

IMG_1975

Capt. Faris is working on his machine learning project while also teaching other kids πŸ™‚

IMG_1918

IMG_1941 IMG_1957

Fadhlan’s hardest task is to find out why the wheels stopped working

IMG_1919

while other components do work πŸ™‚

IMG_1936

Badi started to learn Python πŸ™‚

IMG_1920

because we need a script to update two different calendars for Pavilion19 website πŸ™‚

IMG_1935

Like usual, Badi is a fast learner πŸ™‚

IMG_1937

Badi learns turtle, shapes, and looping in Python very fast

IMG_1942

IMG_1948 IMG_1950

IMG_1954

before he got back to web programming: patching the problem from the previous week

IMG_1965

The problem is the calendar plug in only work for android or ios.

IMG_1967 IMG_1968

so the quick solution is provide links for both OS directing to different version of calendar

IMG_1972

Aidia is still working on her big project: color sorter with arduino

IMG_1921

Aidia spent 3 straight hours typing hundreds lines of code πŸ™‚

IMG_1927

we will start the wiring after Aidia finishes typing in the code πŸ™‚

IMG_1951

Capt. Awa is exploring new things like this rocket launcher simulation

IMG_1922 IMG_1946

IMG_1933 IMG_1934

while Al is working on a new machine learning project

IMG_1923 IMG_1960

recognising sounds

IMG_1969

Al is recording voice for “left” and “right” that will make a sprite turn to left or to the right

IMG_1970

Harraz wants to install Game Maker Studio 2

IMG_1915

This is good because Game Maker Studio 2 gives more libraries and features

IMG_1924

Harraz also wants to learn Minecraft Modding

IMG_1930 IMG_1949

Today he learns how to type in JavaScript codes into Minecraft πŸ™‚

IMG_1962

and make some geometry structures and buildings

IMG_1963

IMG_1964

this is so much fun πŸ™‚ Next week Harraz will type his own JavaScript code πŸ™‚

IMG_1973

Sam is working hard entering assets to his Juz’amma App

IMG_1926 IMG_1929

The app is now working very smoothly now

IMG_1938

After Sam is finished entering all the verses, we are ready to upload it to PlayStore πŸ™‚

IMG_1940

IMG_1947

Koosha is given a task to create a locker system in Minecraft

IMG_1945

IMG_1952

and next class we’re going to use this relay to control smart home appliances πŸ™‚

IMG_1958

IMG_1961

IMG_1971

We had visitors from Arduino Community πŸ™‚

IMG_1966

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 11 May 2019

Standard

Fasting doesn’t necessarily means that we cannot do our regular activities, especially our Saturday coding class πŸ™‚

IMG_1180 IMG_1181

Sam is on the final stage of his Juz’amma App

IMG_1107

The app is working well now, we decided not to use database as long as the app does not exceeds 50MB limit

IMG_1132

So basically what Sam should do is adding the rest of the content and it will be ready to be uploaded to PlayStore πŸ˜‰

IMG_1141

Keep on going Sam! πŸ™‚

IMG_1151

Hafiz is working on his Feeding Frenzy Game *lots of video on this πŸ™‚ Hafiz now has lots of skill to develop his own game πŸ™‚

IMG_1108

Fadhlan is very busy today

IMG_1109

He decided to reconstruct the robot

IMG_1114

Fadhlan makes notes to make sure he doesn’t forget anything

IMG_1120

IMG_1122

Look how he optimize the usage of breadboard πŸ™‚

IMG_1135

IMG_1136

We’re going to test bluetooth module as soon as the basic functions are running well

IMG_1155

IMG_1165 IMG_1166

Fadhlan certainly makes awesome progress during this journey πŸ™‚ SO PROUD πŸ™‚

IMG_1177 IMG_1189

IMG_1190

IMG_1175

Button, LED and Ultrasonic works. But the wheels still don’t. Fadhlan will fix it very soon πŸ™‚

IMG_1192

Al finished two Machine Learning projects today πŸ™‚

IMG_1110

The first one is the project to show smiling face when we type nice words and crying face when we type bad words

IMG_1113

the words

IMG_1117

the face

IMG_1119

IMG_1123

The codes. And it works nicely πŸ™‚

IMG_1127

The next project is a dancing panda that will stop dancing if we look at it πŸ™‚

IMG_1156

the code

IMG_1159

the data set for training

IMG_1160 IMG_1161

the result πŸ˜€ Awesome work Al πŸ™‚

until Juan finished the task πŸ™‚

IMG_1150

Next to teach is Blockly Games

IMG_1170

Capt. Faris

IMG_1125

quietly has uploaded his Memorize Quran App to PlayStore πŸ˜‰ Super proud πŸ™‚

IMG_1152

Capt. Faris checks if Al’s Machine Learning Project can be pushed further to do more complex tasks

IMG_1163

and Capt. Faris also does research to help Sam with the app

IMG_1188

Koosha

IMG_1140

is given a task to create a tunnel with sensor that will turn on the torches along the tunnel and link it to Arduino LEDs

IMG_1126 IMG_1137

IMG_1138 IMG_1173

IMG_1174

Koosha has a million way to do things πŸ˜‰

IMG_1178 IMG_1179

IMG_1185 IMG_1186

Andra is now going to test his first JavaScript code

IMG_1149 IMG_1144

The code will stack a number of blocks on top of each other

IMG_1145

Andra had to change the block with anything else

IMG_1148

IMG_1153

He changed it into TNT blocks πŸ˜€

IMG_1167

The next code is building a triangle. Still in progress. Will be continued next week πŸ˜‰

IMG_9900

The website before https *look at the address with “not secure”

IMG_9908

and then we searched and researched on how to activate the secure service

IMG_9906

yep, https is now activated πŸ™‚ Nice work Badi! πŸ˜‰

 

IMG_9921

Hafiz is on the last stage of his PVZ Game

IMG_9899
