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

Standard

This is what our Saturdays made of πŸ™‚

Captains preparing the class πŸ™‚ ProCodeCG doesn’t hire programmers. We raise them πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_4024

Thanks so much for preparing the class πŸ™‚ :*

IMG_4023

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

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 πŸ˜€

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 πŸ˜‰

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? πŸ˜€

IMG_3900

Even if we have to start all over again from the beginning πŸ˜€

IMG_4021

The class

IMG_3901

And a little coding mom reunion πŸ™‚

IMG_3919

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

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 18 Nov 2017

Standard

Hello! Today we only have Koosha working on Arduino/ESPectro Programming but with lots of progress πŸ™‚

Koosha came with a new project in mind πŸ˜€

IMG_2267

He was working on an elevator project but today, apparently Koosha had something else in mind πŸ˜‰

IMG_2268

He’s going to assembly this RFID stuff

IMG_2269 IMG_2273

The code

IMG_2284

The reading works

IMG_2288

Successfully read from rfid card and rfid tag

IMG_2289

IMG_2290

And then successfully write to the card and tag too πŸ˜‰

IMG_2303

The code

IMG_2304

Then adding an LCD πŸ™‚ Still not working properly but we’re working on it πŸ™‚

IMG_2305

We’ll be reporting more progress next week πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 7 Oct 2017

Standard

Our regular Saturday πŸ™‚

IMG_9337

Everybody has (very serious) things to do πŸ™‚

IMG_9344

Reza was ready to explore microservo with buttons πŸ™‚

IMG_9338

IMG_9342

 

Reza was assigned to code the Arduino to control microservo with 2 buttons

IMG_9351

And after lots of effort and debugging

IMG_9361

… he finished the assignment. One button will turn the micro servo clockwise and the other one will turn the micro servo counter-clockwise πŸ˜‰

IMG_9352

Koosha was still working on the elevator project πŸ™‚

IMG_9354

He had lots of ideas to be implemented

IMG_9353

IMG_9359

We will use this SD-card module to store sounds for the elevator. We were going to do the read and write test but just realized that Koosha didn’t bring the memory card πŸ˜€

IMG_9362

So we tested the LCD πŸ™‚

IMG_9370

Yeah, looking good πŸ™‚

IMG_9372

This is going to be an awesome elevator πŸ˜‰

IMG_9373

We will do more projects next week πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro/Arduino Programming – 12 Aug 2017

Today we’re preparing for ProCodeCG Kids Coding Exhibition 17 August 2017 πŸ™‚

IMG_5414

IMG_5417

Clarence is going to present about one of his projects

IMG_5415

Clarence has been doing research with ESPectro and created lots of things

IMG_5418

Mostly about visualizations using LCD

IMG_5443

This one is a space shooter visualization

IMG_5444

Clarence has been doing some tuning to the fps and the algorithm

IMG_5445

He also has sorting algorithm visualization to be presented on the exhibition

IMG_5446

Rezky is one of the most focus and diligent πŸ™‚ He is now working on ultrasonic counter after finishing all the previous sections πŸ™‚

IMG_5431

IMG_5420

IMG_5429

Rezky has finished the simple smiley animation

IMG_5425

IMG_5426

and then battery charging animation

IMG_5433

IMG_5434

And continue to ultrasonic sensor πŸ™‚

IMG_5436

Raul comes back πŸ™‚

IMG_5421

catching up with the stuff he hasn’t done for weeks

IMG_5430

Yes, Raul’s ultrasonic sensor is working πŸ™‚

IMG_5439

Well done, Raul πŸ˜‰

IMG_5440

Vian has just started learning Arduino/ESPectro Programming last week and he’s totally excited about it πŸ™‚

IMG_5432

It takes time to download ESPectro libraries and doing set up

IMG_5435

so we use Arduino while waiting

IMG_5442

Vian likes to make the schematic from the very beginning, from the simplest and then adding more things πŸ™‚

IMG_5449

He started to learn about resistor value πŸ™‚

IMG_5458

IMG_5459

Cinta is working on her project for exhibition: Automatic Traffic Light Pedestrian Button

IMG_5441IMG_5477

We will be reporting about our exhibition next Thursday. Wish us luck! πŸ˜‰

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 5 Aug 2017

Standard

Hello! This is our regular thing on Saturdays πŸ™‚

IMG_4985

Vian surprisingly told us he wants to learn Arduino/ESPectro Programming instead of GameMaker and Minecraft πŸ™‚

IMG_4974

He learned to make an LED blinking πŸ˜‰

IMG_4958

IMG_4959

and then 2 LEDs

IMG_4969

and then 3 LEDs

IMG_4980

and then because we’re out of breadboards then Vian learned how to make RGB LED works πŸ™‚

IMG_4981

Rezky got a new LCD I2C and ready to test it

IMG_4944

IMG_4951

Yea it worked πŸ™‚

IMG_4952

Rezky learned to create some simple custom char

IMG_4956

and also lots of sets of custom chars πŸ™‚

IMG_4966

So did Ruben, he had just got a new LCD I2C

IMG_4946

he did the wiring and prepare to test it πŸ™‚

IMG_4949 2

while we’re installing some libraries, he drew πŸ™‚ amazing πŸ™‚

IMG_4953

or put everything inside his toolbox on a breadboard πŸ˜€

IMG_4961

or lay down for a while πŸ˜€

IMG_4972

ok Uben, the library is ready, let’s compile πŸ˜‰ Yes it works! πŸ™‚

IMG_4965

Ruben learned how to display text on the LCD

IMG_4973

and also how to put a smile on it πŸ™‚

IMG_4987

then given the task to put a sad face πŸ˜‰

IMG_4988

Ozan was really busy making an ultrasonic sensor work πŸ˜‰

IMG_4948 2

IMG_4957

IMG_4977

and finally it worked πŸ™‚

IMG_4978 2

The LCD is showing the number it is counting *it was dimmed because we use 3,3V instead of 5V (the 5V is used to power the ultrasonic sensor)

IMG_4979

Yaaay, awesome work Ozaaaaan πŸ˜‰

IMG_4983 2

Nadine wanted to learn Arduino/ESPectro programming too πŸ™‚ Capt. Faris helped her to get started πŸ™‚

IMG_4950 2

Nadine is very interested to learn about components and devboard πŸ™‚

IMG_4960

IMG_4962 2

She learned how to make a LED blinking (just like Vian)

IMG_4975 IMG_4976

Learned some debugging with Capt. Faris

IMG_4982

and then learned to blink more LEDs πŸ˜‰

IMG_4984

and also RGB LED πŸ™‚

IMG_4990

Proud! Good job Nadine! *she can’t wait to have her own ProCodeCG Kits next week πŸ˜‰

IMG_4991

Capt. Cinta examining the ProCodeCG Big Toolbox to get some idea what to create πŸ™‚

IMG_4942 2

It’s so much fun today like always πŸ˜‰

IMG_0324

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™‚
