Standard

Saturday coding time πŸ˜‰

We can tell from Fadhlan’s look that he’s very pleased with the new powerbank to be installed to his robot πŸ˜€

IMG_4538

He needs lots of bolts and nuts but since we don’t have enough right now, we will just attach it to the robot

IMG_4545

setting up the code

IMG_4546

uploading the code

IMG_4553

the mapping working just fine! now getting ready to put the robot on the ground πŸ˜€

IMG_4554

setting up and gooo!

IMG_4562

the reading is ok *notice that now the robot is not attached to the laptop, it is sending the data of ultrasonic sensing via bluetooth

IMG_4563

we forgot to watch the heading of the robot and it jumped to the floor and some components and cables were scattered on the floor OMGGG

IMG_4565

after the accident after we fixed the robot πŸ˜€ *we almost had tantrum thinking that we should start the robot from scratch again LOL

IMG_4575

next is attaching compass so the robot will tell us where it is heading: North, South, East or West

IMG_4587

next week we will upload a new code to make the robot doing mapping while avoiding obstacles

IMG_4588

Syadad started to create javascript codes and save it to Spigot server to make structures in Minecraft πŸ™‚

IMG_4539

He tested available codes in the server to see how they work

IMG_4541 IMG_4542

IMG_4550 IMG_4551

and then start to type his own code

IMG_4567 IMG_4568

Syadad first code to stack up blocks

IMG_4578

the result πŸ™‚

IMG_4579

IMG_4584

the next code will be to create triangles πŸ™‚

IMG_4585

Sam is going to be a Coding Camp Captain next week

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™‚

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_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

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™‚

Fadhlan got a new solder and compared it to the old one πŸ˜€

IMG_9507

And he also got a super big and tidy toolbox!

IMG_9506

Very well organized

IMG_9508

Especially with those little compartments! Nice job πŸ™‚

IMG_9513

So now he can start to work happily πŸ˜€

IMG_9509

Today’s work is to install power supply for the robot

IMG_9512

replacing a motor that stopped working

IMG_9524

now all working

IMG_9537

the next step is adding a switch

IMG_9546

All working well. Next week we will add bluetooth module

IMG_9547

Badi has got serious work in registering a domain and choosing hosting configuration

IMG_9510

He had to read lots of tutorials and manuals

IMG_9522

Including chat the customer service to activate the system with the correct payment amount and the chosen configuration

IMG_9543

Faishal is still exploring computer security and Kali Linux

IMG_9511

He is learning how to change IP address and manage an attack

IMG_9520 IMG_9562

IMG_9563

Hafiz works really hard on this one because this game has a whole lot complexity and details than any games he had ever created πŸ™‚

IMG_9515

The more characters and features we added to the game, the harder to make it work πŸ˜€

IMG_9517

IMG_9521

Syadad lost his game from last week so he had to started from the beginning

IMG_9519

but it is ok, he managed to catch up πŸ™‚

Standard

Saturday’s Coding Squad πŸ™‚

IMG_9014

Capt. Faris is given a project to detect hoax and real news

IMG_8976

plus investigating the neural nets architecture being used by our machine learning platform

IMG_9039

The codes

IMG_9040 IMG_9052

Hafiz’s Plant vs Zombie Game is getting better and better πŸ˜‰

IMG_8977 IMG_8981

we need to add lots codes to add more features to the game

IMG_8990 IMG_8991

IMG_8993 IMG_8994

Now the game has the randomly generated points (the yellow dots)

IMG_8998 IMG_8999

it also now has flowers that can shoot peas πŸ™‚

IMG_9033

Hafiz has to repeat the process for lots of sprites

IMG_9035

and then define scoring and rules of the game. Lots of hard work but fun πŸ™‚

IMG_9053

Sulaiman is going to choose his own project today πŸ™‚

IMG_8978

We borrowed Aidia’s book to find a suitable project for Sul πŸ™‚

IMG_9004 IMG_9003

IMG_9006 IMG_9010

IMG_9012

After a while, Sul finally chose this one πŸ™‚

IMG_9013

The result πŸ™‚

IMG_9026

and then Sul started to create running text structure like Capt. Awa was doing earlier

IMG_9055

Syadad started creating games today πŸ™‚

IMG_8979

The first sprite

IMG_8986 IMG_8987

Object movement test

IMG_8989

The other sprite to be eaten by the first sprite

IMG_9005

room setup

IMG_9017

Yayyy, Syadad’s first game πŸ™‚

IMG_9037

more object arrangements and background

IMG_9042

We will add scoring in the next class πŸ˜‰

IMG_9050

Aidia is improving her sophisticated locker system design πŸ˜‰

IMG_8980 IMG_8984

Aidia added more structures to her world

IMG_8985 IMG_8988

She brought some books for references

IMG_9009

So whatever Aidia created in her world is pure her creativity; she combined lots of ideas into unique structures

IMG_9028

IMG_9034

Capt. Awa asked for a challenge and so the challenge was creating a running text structure

IMG_8983

No one has ever created this before because of it’s tricky nature. By using piston the furthest shift is 7 blocks

IMG_8995

But Awa wouldn’t be a Captain if he wasn’t qualified πŸ™‚ He brilliantly overcome the limitation by making it circular πŸ™‚

IMG_9020

The structure. Unbelievable. Impressive. Outstanding. πŸ™‚

IMG_9022

Awa tried several structures before finally found the correct one

IMG_9023

Minecraft can be used to learn many things including logic, problem solving, creativity, including mechanical structures and electronics logics πŸ˜‰

IMG_9025

Experimenting with the machine

IMG_9032

adding shield to make it waterproof πŸ˜€

IMG_9054

Andra is still going through the intro to coding πŸ™‚

IMG_9008

Today he learned about function through pattern

IMG_9018

IMG_9019 IMG_9029

And then moved on to more challenges. Next week Andra will learn visual coding with actual coding scripts πŸ™‚
