ProCodeCG Kids Private Robotic Class – 21 Sept 2018

Standard

We have a deadline and lots of things to do! 😉 We buy new components each time to make sure we have back ups and all the stuff we need 🙂

IMG_5037

Today we test the codes and the components individually

IMG_5038

We tested the ultrasonic sensor

IMG_5039

Which worked nicely

IMG_5040

And then we test the micro servo

IMG_5043

and it also worked fine

IMG_5045

Fadhlan has to rearrange all the components before we test all the components and see how they work together

IMG_5046

Such a big progress in a short time but we still need lots of time for testing and analysis. Plus writing and making poster 😀 Wish us luck!!!

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

Standard

This is what our Saturdays made of 🙂

Captains preparing the class 🙂 ProCodeCG doesn’t hire programmers. We raise them 🙂

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 🙂

IMG_4024

Thanks so much for preparing the class 🙂 :*

IMG_4023

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

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 😀

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 😉

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? 😀

IMG_3900

Even if we have to start all over again from the beginning 😀

IMG_4021

The class

IMG_3901

And a little coding mom reunion 🙂

IMG_3919

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

Standard

Our regular Saturday 🙂

IMG_9337

Everybody has (very serious) things to do 🙂

IMG_9344

Reza was ready to explore microservo with buttons 🙂

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 😉

IMG_9352

Koosha was still working on the elevator project 🙂

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 😀

IMG_9362

So we tested the LCD 🙂

IMG_9370

Yeah, looking good 🙂

IMG_9372

This is going to be an awesome elevator 😉

IMG_9373

We will do more projects next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 23 Sep 2017

Standard

Today we picked up where we left last week: making a micro servo works 🙂

IMG_8522

There were on only two kids working on Arduino/ESPectro Programming 🙂 This is Ozan

IMG_8502

He had successfully made micro servo works, and ready to add an ultrasonic sensor to activate the micro servo 🙂

IMG_8516

Nafis was working on the same thing

IMG_8519

IMG_8517

IMG_8509

IMG_8539

He added an ultrasonic to activate the micro servo and worked 😉

IMG_8538

Next week we will explore more things, and help the other kids to catch up 🙂

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 19 Aug 2017

Standard

Hello Saturday 🙂 Working together setting up the class 🙂

IMG_6003 IMG_6004

Unexpected family reunion 😀

IMG_6005

OK let’s get started 🙂

IMG_6006

Abdillah got lots of things to do today because he’s going to a hackathon next week. We need to buy a gesture sensor, and before it arrives, we’re doing experiments with gyro

IMG_6007

We tried several devboards including Arduino Uno and Arduino Mega

IMG_6054

IMG_6063

But the problem apparently because we installed the incompatible libraries. We’ll find the correct ones and try again

IMG_6071

Hello Nafis welcome back 😉

IMG_6008

Nafis was going to create an ultrasonic counter 🙂

IMG_6016

But he got distracted with the avometer and started to learn how to use it. Plus learning how to count resistor values 🙂

IMG_6017

He was afraid he was going to electrocuted measuring the value of resistor LOL 😀

IMG_6018

Then Nafis started the project with the help of Rezky 🙂

IMG_6027

In ProCodeCG Kids Classes, we nurture the willingness to help and share with other kids. Kids are encouraged to teach other kids and share what they know 🙂 Good job, Rezky 😉

IMG_6028

Nafis’ messy but cool toolbox 😉

IMG_6029 2

Abdillah also helped Nafis to check the components because the devboard and sensors got heated up because the polarity was reversed 😀 And the ultrasonic sensor got burnt 😀

IMG_6040

And finally, it worked. Yeaaay Nafis 🙂

IMG_6050

Rezky was still debugging his ultrasonic sensor

IMG_6010

IMG_6039

IMG_6048

and finally it worked! Next is ultrasonic traffic light 😉

IMG_6020

IMG_6031

Awa! Was busy preparing for next Thursday’s Republic of IoT presentation 🙂

IMG_6012

Awa is improving his cat feeder. This is how it looks like. It uses servo to open and close the lid to pour out the food.

IMG_6013

Before, it uses button to activate the servo.

IMG_6014

IMG_6023

IMG_6026

And today Awa will use ultrasonic instead of button to activate the servo

IMG_6042

IMG_6044

Abdillah and Faris helped to set up the servo

IMG_6022

IMG_6073

And it worked nicely! Yaaaay, Awa is ready for the presentation 😉

IMG_6076

And then Awa was given a task to activate a micro servo

IMG_6015

doing it together with Abdillah 🙂

IMG_6019

And worked. And we’re going to create many projects with servo 😉

IMG_6021

Teamwork in class 🙂 Abdillah, Nafis and Rezky are working together to debug Nafis’ project 🙂

IMG_6034 IMG_6038

IMG_6045

This is ProCodeCG Kids Coding Class: leadership, teamwork and sharing 😉

IMG_6052

These ones are also teamworking to design something. Cinta is going to improve the ultrasonic traffic light. Probably with counter 🙂

IMG_6009

We got lots of ideas for projects, will be reporting soon! 😉
