Hello, welcome back to our regular ESPectro programming class πŸ™‚

IMG_4411

Ozan still had a project to do: ultrasonic counter with buzzer and LED πŸ™‚

IMG_4404

the ultrasonic and LCD work fine but the buzzer didn’t πŸ˜€

IMG_4405

And we had Nadine start learning ESPectro programming today πŸ™‚

IMG_4406

And Ozan became Capt. on duty today to help Nadine learning πŸ™‚

IMG_4407

IMG_4408

The first task is to make the LED onboard blink, and the LED on breadbroad blink πŸ™‚

IMG_4409

IMG_4412

Done! πŸ™‚

IMG_4422

And then adding more LEDs πŸ™‚

IMG_4423

IMG_4435

Worked nicely πŸ™‚

IMG_4438 2

Nadine wanted to learn how to use multimeter πŸ™‚

IMG_4439 2

She learned how to check resistor value and test LEDs πŸ™‚

IMG_4441

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

IMG_4442

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

IMG_4443

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

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 2 Dec 2017

Standard

Hello hello!

IMG_3343

Today we had three kids working on Arduino/ESPectro πŸ™‚

Yes, Capt. Awa and his toolbox is back πŸ˜€

IMG_3345

IMG_3344

IMG_3349//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Awa was planning to work on his radar project πŸ™‚

IMG_3346

IMG_3352

While Ozan needed to install libraries and drivers for ESPectro because he was using different laptop πŸ™‚ But he was working on ultrasonic with buzzer and light before attaching it to LCD

IMG_3389//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

The code

IMG_3356

IMG_3366//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Nafis was doing the same thing like Ozan was doing: making ultrasonic works with LED and buzzer and then attach the LCD

IMG_3362

IMG_3358//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Nafis had some problem: his computer wouldn’t detect the port and we still hadn’t figured it out until the end of the class and we had to work on it next week πŸ™‚

IMG_3367

Awa got help from his mom and dad πŸ™‚ A very nice family teamwork πŸ™‚

IMG_3375

IMG_3376IMG_3382

IMG_3404 IMG_3406

And finally the servo worked πŸ˜€

IMG_3405

As a dedicated captain, Awa spared sometime to fix broken cables πŸ™‚

IMG_3408

So proud and happy to have a Captain like this, thanks Capt. Awa πŸ™‚ ❀

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro – 21 Oct 2017

Standard

Our dose of coding every Saturday πŸ™‚

IMG_0245

Cinta spent 2 sessions continuing her Arduino schematic design and simulation using Proteus πŸ™‚

IMG_0243

She tried several designs and with different components

IMG_0286//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0249

Proteus provides library of components so it is very helpful πŸ˜‰

IMG_0277

Nafis was back after a while, and he was working on adding buzzer and LED to ultrasonic counter

IMG_0250 IMG_0252

Nafis refused to connect and test the components one by one; instead he put all components and compile to see what happened πŸ˜€ Still not working and he has to debug it on the next class πŸ˜€

IMG_0274

Nafis little sister, Nayla liked to play with the components (she refuse to be photographed :D)

IMG_0254

IMG_0266

Awa came with a new toys: Arduino Parallax πŸ˜€

IMG_0256

IMG_0284//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Awa was given a task to create a radar with ultrasonic and microservo and he started with this one πŸ™‚

IMG_0257 IMG_0258

Awa is fully supported by mom and sister πŸ™‚

IMG_0264

IMG_0261

And Clarence joined in πŸ˜€

IMG_0315

These two have their own connections

IMG_0314

making a great team πŸ˜€

IMG_0316

Clarence started to tinker with Parallax code πŸ™‚ He was previously given a task to process data from sonar reading and display it to a TFT screen

IMG_0317

Reza was doing the same thing as Nafis but he did it differently: he puts one component at a time and tests it one by one

IMG_0259

IMG_0282

Reza is one very focus and determined kid πŸ™‚

IMG_0318

He kept trying

IMG_0319

IMG_0322

And the time’s up when he was almost finished. The buzzer won’t stop beeping πŸ˜€ Next time he has to modify the code so the buzzer will only beep when the counter reaches some certain number πŸ™‚

IMG_0299

Capt. Awa on duty πŸ˜€ Blurred pics because he moved so fast! πŸ˜€

IMG_0324

Thanks so much Capt. Awa :* ❀

IMG_0325

See you next week πŸ™‚

Hello hello! We are reporting our Saturday regular kids coding class πŸ™‚

IMG_9727

IMG_9744

IMG_9780

Cinta spent two sessions working on PCB design and simulation using Proteus πŸ™‚

IMG_9733

She was very excited πŸ™‚

IMG_9761

IMG_9807

Cinta started with resistors, buttons and LED’s

IMG_9731

IMG_9732

Proteus can be connected to Arduino IDE

IMG_9824

Then Cinta added more and more components to her design πŸ™‚

IMG_9806

An awesome way to simulate πŸ™‚ Next lesson Cinta will be given task to simulate a Tic Tac Toe on Arduino πŸ˜‰

IMG_9839

Helloooo Ruben was back πŸ™‚

IMG_9738

This was where we left: creating and ultrasonic counter πŸ™‚

IMG_9739

Capt. Faris helped Ruben with the code

IMG_9759

IMG_9749//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

And after several debugging, installing, and testing, it worked πŸ™‚

IMG_9763

IMG_9764

And then Ruben was given this: adding buzzer and lamp to the previous one πŸ™‚ So that when the counter reaches certain number, the buzzer will be active and so will the LED πŸ™‚

IMG_9765

IMG_9774

IMG_9779

IMG_9784

Ruben likes to assemble things πŸ™‚

IMG_9785

The LED worked but not yet the buzzer πŸ™‚

IMG_9820

Will work on it next week πŸ˜‰

IMG_9829

Koosha had a new project πŸ™‚

IMG_9772

First he collected the components and the tools

IMG_9773

IMG_9778

Including this light to give better light

IMG_9781

Koosha prepared lots of breadboards, buttons and RGB LEDs

IMG_9786

IMG_9805

He wouldn’t tell what he was doing πŸ˜€

IMG_9821

We had to make lots of guess

IMG_9822

IMG_9825

Until…

IMG_9826

Koosha was working on a Tic Tac Toe on Arduino πŸ™‚

IMG_9827

IMG_9828

Excellent idea! πŸ™‚

IMG_9840

He still has to add more resistors and wires and also the coding, and we will continue working on it next week πŸ™‚

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™‚

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™‚
