Clarence came with lots of progress πŸ™‚

IMG_0288

He made some improvements on the game he created with ESPectro and TFT Display

IMG_0289

IMG_0291

Clarence can sit all day all night to do this, his parents always have a hard time picking him up because he would just sit and work until someone drag the table and the carpet he sits on πŸ˜€

IMG_0293

Hello Ozan, one of theΒ awkward poses we get each time we take his pic because he didn’t like to be in a pic πŸ˜€

IMG_0295

Ozan finished two tasks

IMG_0304 2

One is showing a smiley face on the LCD

IMG_0306

IMG_0307

And the other one is to show custom chars

IMG_0315

IMG_0322

Well done Ozan πŸ™‚

IMG_0323

FriendshipΒ πŸ™‚

IMG_0325

Rezky was still struggling with ESPectro installment and setting up πŸ™‚

IMG_0296

Painful at the beginning but worth it in the end πŸ™‚

IMG_0339

Malik had successfully completed his task to connect a gyro to LEDs and then started his Air Drum Project

IMG_0297

IMG_0301

We had to shop some more components

IMG_0319

IMG_0328

Malik had finished typing all the code with no errors. Once we get the components, we can start to build it πŸ™‚

IMG_0338

Rezvan, Malik’s little brother, came to the class after his taekwondo class πŸ™‚

IMG_0330

Rezvan finished a code to activate ProCodeCG LED code at home πŸ™‚

IMG_0332

Rezvan with Malik’s toolbox πŸ™‚ Looking for resistors with correct values πŸ™‚

IMG_0333

Rezvan was going to test an RGB LED

IMG_0337

IMG_0348

Worked just fine. Yes πŸ™‚

IMG_0352

See you again next week πŸ™‚ Our regular coding class will be off only during Coding Camp πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG – Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 20 May 2017

Standard

ProCodeCG Kids ESPectro Programming yesterday πŸ™‚

IMG_9282

We started to create simple animation on 16×2 LCD πŸ™‚

IMG_9283

Rafi would not stop doing something until he gets it right πŸ™‚

IMG_9284

We were finding out how to make animation without the LCD keeps flickering

IMG_9288

As soon as we find out, we will start making more complex animation and probably games on 16×2 LCD πŸ™‚

IMG_9289

Rafi was making a charging battery animation

IMG_9302

We are planning to create a little sticky man animation running through one side of the LCD to the other side πŸ˜‰

IMG_9301

A pleasant surprise: our lead captain, zaki, gave us a visit πŸ™‚

IMG_9292

Welcome back, cap! πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 13 May 2017

Standard

Hello! ESPectro Programming Class today πŸ™‚

IMG_8734

Muhammad had to catch up, he picked up where he left: connecting to wifi with ESPectro and display the data of wifi πŸ™‚

IMG_8736

IMG_8755

Muhammad was so excited to find out that he can display the details of a wifi he connected to. Next is to scan the available wifi and display the details, including the security and signal strength πŸ™‚

IMG_8754

Nafis was very happy to be able to turn on his neopixels and change their colors πŸ™‚

IMG_8737

IMG_8741

Nafis learned to set the neopixels individually too

IMG_8745

So he can set different colors for each neopixel (the color was red, green and blue). And later he changed it into a more specific colors like sky blue, baby pink etc. πŸ˜€

IMG_8743

Rafi started to connect his ESPectro to LCD I2C today. He was a bit confused because he had connected LCD I2C to Arduino before, and didn’t know how to do it with ESPectro, which was lots easier πŸ™‚

IMG_8738

Yep, it worked right away πŸ™‚

IMG_8742

Then Rafi learned how to display custom characters on LCD

IMG_8749

Like this simple smiley

IMG_8767

And later he created a simple animation, from smiling smiley to sad smiley πŸ˜‰ We planned to make more animation next week πŸ™‚

IMG_8768

Raul was working on displaying simple custom chars too πŸ™‚

IMG_8739

 

IMG_8746

He was asked to create a battery icon

IMG_8747

and he did πŸ™‚ He was working on make it animating like charging and discharging πŸ˜‰Β How interesting! Can’t wait to see the progress next week πŸ™‚

IMG_8748

Whoaa we had the Godfather there to, working on his own very advanced project πŸ˜‰

IMG_8766

The class! ❀ ❀ ❀

IMG_8751

See you next week πŸ™‚

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 18 March 2017

Standard

Yesterday Muhammad and his little brother Hasan (those two sitting on the back) helped us to set up the class πŸ™‚ Thanks so much πŸ™‚

IMG_4871

We learned to display sensor readings to LCD πŸ™‚Β We started with LDR (Light Dependent Resistor)

IMG_4877

Raul was a bit confused about the schematic because the LCD and the sensor were in different picture

IMG_4872

but he finally figured it out πŸ™‚

IMG_4879 1

Raul finished the display of ultrasonic sensor reading too, but didn’t have time to continue on temperature and humidity sensor because he had to start his Java Programming lesson πŸ™‚

IMG_4887 1

Koosha’s comfort corner πŸ™‚ (he didn’t want to be in a pic, he left each time we took picture :D)

IMG_4875

Koosha finished the LDR and was tinkering with it but not yet finished the other sensors because there was problem with the library. It’s ok we’ll fix it next week πŸ˜‰

IMG_4881

Ren πŸ™‚

IMG_4878 1

and his serious look πŸ™‚

IMG_4882

Ren finished LDR reading to LCDΒ and ultrasonic reading to LCD. Only on left to try: temperature and humidity sensor πŸ™‚

IMG_4900

Nafis had to catch up with the class

IMG_4880

and he got help from Dad πŸ˜€

IMG_4895 1

and finally got it work πŸ˜‰

IMG_4911

LDR NAFIS πŸ˜‰

IMG_4912

Muhammad had to catch up with the class too so he started with making sure that the LCD works

IMG_4873

And then connect it to LDR πŸ™‚ Next week he’ll catch up with ultrasonic sensor and temperature & humidity sensor πŸ™‚

IMG_4886 1

Ozan had successfully finished the task too πŸ™‚

IMG_4874

We had to change the LDR several times until we found the one with correct readings πŸ™‚ And it finally showing the correct values πŸ™‚

IMG_4885 1

Rafi and Mom πŸ™‚

IMG_4883 1

Great teamwork like always πŸ™‚

IMG_4893 1

LDR reading

IMG_4894 1

and temperature and humidity reading

IMG_4915

In ProCodeCG, a class is not just a regular class. It’s about teamwork and family bonding too πŸ˜‰

IMG_4902

Next week we will explore more sensors and getting started with Espectro πŸ˜‰

 

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino Programming – 11 March 2017

Standard

Yaaay this morning we found the class has been neatly set up by Capt. Awa and Mama πŸ™‚ Thanks so much πŸ™‚

IMG_4376

Capt. Awa, wearing a very cool pilot t-shirt refused to be in a pic πŸ˜€

IMG_4377

IMG_4378

What we love about ProCodeCG Classes is that it nurture bondings between parents and kids πŸ˜‰

IMG_4379

Mama Awa is a Coding Mom graduate and has done several projects and now is the Coding Mom Project Officer πŸ™‚

IMG_4382

Today we learned to use LCD I2C and create an digital voltmeter πŸ™‚

IMG_4387

Raul was so ready to start πŸ™‚

IMG_4381

Raul’s LCD worked fine

IMG_4390

and the digital voltmeter worked too πŸ™‚

IMG_4395

Koosha! πŸ™‚

IMG_4384

He successfully made the LCD works

IMG_4396

IMG_4397

and also played with it πŸ˜€

IMG_4410

IMG_4403

Koosha tried to add a button to add some display control

IMG_4421

Look at that face πŸ™‚

IMG_4428

Koosha had to use two computers to make things work πŸ˜€

IMG_4429

Ren! Always get things done πŸ™‚

IMG_4385

IMG_4391

digital voltmeter done πŸ˜‰

IMG_4394

Ren also helped Rafi πŸ™‚

IMG_4408

Reza πŸ™‚

He got things done quickly

IMG_4404

and then helped Koosha πŸ™‚

IMG_4424

And we got Capt. Malik back! πŸ™‚

He got a new computer, and start working on the air drum project πŸ™‚

IMG_4401

and finally the gyroscope works! Yaaay πŸ™‚

IMG_4402
