ProCodeCG Kids Private Class – Robotics – 16 Sept 2019

Standard

the saga continues… SNAPBOTS Road to Russia πŸ™‚ this is the room before the saga started πŸ˜€

IMG_1186

we’re setting up camera to capture our activity today πŸ˜€

IMG_1185

IMG_1187 IMG_1188

lots of things to do, especially hacking mouse chip to read robot movements but we’re still struggling with reading the data because we haven’t got the correct data sheet 😦

IMG_1189

SNAPBOT II is powered with Arduino Mega and navigates really well. What we are going to do is adding mouse reading and broadcast it via bluetooth to display a map on a laptop/PC

IMG_1190

hacking the mouse is not as easy as we thought πŸ˜€

IMG_1200

well if what we’ve been doing is easy, we wouldn’t have come this far πŸ˜‰

IMG_1201

IMG_1203

we also added a potentiometer to SNAPBOT I to control the PWM so we can adjust the speed of the wheels

IMG_1204

done!

IMG_1206

Fayza, Fadhlan’s older sister is also in the same competition this year πŸ™‚ Good luck all! πŸ™‚

IMG_1209

we’re tired and work is still piling up but we won’t give up! gear up until the D-Day! πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Private Class – Robotics – 9 Sept 2019

Standard

Road to Russia Saga continues πŸ˜‰ We’re working on SNAPBOT I and SNAPBOT II today πŸ˜€

IMG_0667

SNAPBOT I

IMG_0684

SNAPBOT II

IMG_0685

The first thing we do is interfacing an optical mouse to Arduino

IMG_0668

we will put this on SNAPBOT II so we can get the trail of the movement by reading the x and y of the mouse

IMG_0669

we have to carefully check the pin out and datasheet to make sure which port goes to where πŸ˜€

IMG_0670

we use wires to check if we can read the data

IMG_0672 IMG_0673

we print the address but not yet getting the correct reading

IMG_0674 IMG_0675

the x y reading

IMG_0676

checking the connection and ports

IMG_0677

IMG_0679 IMG_0680

and then start soldering

IMG_0681 IMG_0682

IMG_0683

but we have written the code to read x and y from the mouse, and also the code to display the reading into some movement trails like thisΒ Β Screen Shot 2019-09-09 at 17.24.19

still got LOTS of work to do but we won’t stop! we’ll be back soon for more update and progress!

Clive is super duper excited doing this πŸ™‚

IMG_9453

He works in high speed and understand the main concepts very fast

IMG_9474

The result πŸ˜‰

IMG_9481

Now Clive’s Maze game already has basic features: movement, chasing a target, scoring, and then after reaching a certain score the game will move to the next level πŸ™‚ great work

IMG_9506

Welcome to the class Boy πŸ™‚

IMG_9425

going through intro to programming

IMG_9432

Fadhlan has to change the Arduino board because the last time we finalising the robot, one pin is broken inside one of the Arduino port πŸ˜€ and after Fadhlan moved the cabling to the new Arduino, some functions are not working *look at that panic face πŸ˜€

IMG_9438

but finally all works πŸ˜€ the mapping is working now, all components on the breadboard are functional as well

IMG_9483

now testing the robot on the ground πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 3 Aug 2019

Standard

Our busy Saturday Coding activities πŸ™‚

Aidia is preparing presentation slides for the exhibition πŸ™‚

IMG_7871

IMG_7898

She will present at least 3 projects on the exhibition: robot, automatic railway gate system and color sorting machine πŸ™‚

IMG_7870

this is the color sorting machine πŸ™‚

IMG_7872

Aidia is little gir a very focus and big dedication πŸ™‚

IMG_7880

It is unbelievable that a 9 yo can make presentation slides like this πŸ™‚

IMG_7884

IMG_7888 IMG_7889

Capt. Faris is busy with research, being a teaching assistant

IMG_7873

and tuning Badi’s ukulele πŸ˜€

IMG_7971

We just found out that Badi can play ukulele, very nice πŸ™‚

IMG_7874

today we had to fix this error. Pavilion19’s website is down because the hosting is rerouting the IP address

IMG_7877

we had to report the error to the hosting admin

IMG_7908

too busy to get off the chair πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ D

IMG_7915

IMG_7916

we sent emails, called the call center, to finally make the website up again. The problem remaining is that we still had to wait to get cpanel activated again

IMG_7918

Fadhlan is going to continue compas calibration

IMG_7875

compass data readings

IMG_7895

comparing the empirical data

IMG_7896

and then uploaded the obsctacle avoiding + mapping code and test the robot

IMG_7919

IMG_7920 IMG_7936

everything seems to work normally but we ran out of time, the robot ran out of battery and so did the laptop πŸ˜€

IMG_7937

and also the engineer πŸ˜€ so we just called it a day πŸ˜€

IMG_7948

Adit is back πŸ™‚ after a looong time πŸ™‚

IMG_7876

he started to learn basic programming all over again for warming up

IMG_7881

IMG_7892 IMG_7897

and making a great progress for today πŸ™‚ Hoping to see you again in the next class Adit πŸ™‚

IMG_7912

Capt. Awa is working on the projects for the exhibition

IMG_7878

IMG_7882 IMG_7891

this time it is the RFID projects. Awa created a game with RFID πŸ˜‰

IMG_7894

When you answer correctly (by tapping the correct RFID card), you will get scores πŸ™‚

IMG_7911

Faiz is ready to explore sensors today πŸ™‚

IMG_7879

Today it’s ultrasonic sensor πŸ™‚

IMG_7883

And Faiz wanted to learn the code line by line. He asked the meaning of each line πŸ™‚

IMG_7890 IMG_7910

the ultrasonic readings πŸ™‚

IMG_7961

next class we will learn some other sensors before finally assemble the robot πŸ™‚

IMG_7962

Hafiz couldn’t access the machine learning server today

IMG_7885

so we changed plan into creating apps with Thunkable

IMG_7917

Hafiz learned how to create an app to recognize objects

IMG_7926 IMG_7958

The app has successfully detect objects, and Hafiz had successfully added text to voice module to the app πŸ™‚ Great progress today, Hafiz πŸ˜‰

IMG_7969

Al

IMG_7893

is in the mood of editing with Photoshop today πŸ™‚

IMG_7907

Al has beeen

IMG_7909

Yogi is back after a while πŸ™‚ Welcome back πŸ™‚

IMG_7913

Yogi picked it up where he left πŸ™‚ We still figuring out how to create a little screen view using GameMaker Studio πŸ™‚

IMG_7914

and he also challenged himself with some coding puzzles πŸ™‚

IMG_7963

Zaaka is improving his another complex game πŸ™‚

IMG_7921

IMG_7928 IMG_7944

he created LOTS of room and you can imagine how complex the game is πŸ™‚

IMG_7946 IMG_7965

Kishan keeps improving his game

IMG_7922

and make it a very intuitive and interesting game to play πŸ™‚

IMG_7929

IMG_7931 IMG_7932

IMG_7942

Kishan also carefully created awesome animations for the sprites, making his game looks very alive!

IMG_7952

IMG_7953 IMG_7954

Syadad has been very seriously preparing coding for upcoming exhibition πŸ˜‰

IMG_7923 IMG_7927

IMG_7949 IMG_7950

He had prepared many codes for building many structures in Minecraft, and going to invent new interesting structures πŸ˜‰

IMG_7964

Azmi is going to learn basic electronics today πŸ˜‰

IMG_7924

Capt. Awa helped Azmi installing Arduino and also copying ProCodeCG Handout to Azmi’s laptop

IMG_7925

Azmi looked very interested in assembling things from the very beginning πŸ˜‰

IMG_7935

He is also willing to type in the code line by line. A very rare willingness for a kid πŸ™‚

IMG_7941 IMG_7951

Finally Azmi got his LED blinking yayyy! πŸ™‚

IMG_7966

Azmi’s first Arduino project πŸ˜‰

IMG_7968

Tyo is now joining the regular class and continuing his controlling-arduino-with-app project πŸ˜‰

IMG_7959

we still have problems with connection and will make progress very soon
