ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 26 March 2016 – Improving Random Searching Algorithm in Python and Logic Gates with RedStone in Minecraft

Standard

We have a long holiday this weekend but we kept the class running even with a very few kids πŸ™‚

One thread today was further improving a random search algorithm πŸ™‚ The left one is the improved one and on the right is the original algorithm.

The result is quite satisfying πŸ˜‰ 120 generations vs 12 generations πŸ˜€

Another thread was learning logic gates with Minecraft πŸ˜‰

Gaga is very expert on this, so he explained how it works in front of the class πŸ™‚

IMG_7984

Gaga got his own way in explaining things πŸ˜‰ Β He knows how to use logic gates!

IMG_7985

Ardi is also very good in using RedStone in Minecraft. He is working on creating automatic lights in a tunnel.

IMG_7986

This is the circuits Gaga created to make a tunnel with lights inside it that will turn on each time the door is opened.

IMG_7987

The lights are on the left and the right side along the tunnel. And will be fired up with a delay so they will not turned on once. This is so cool.

IMG_7990

Ardi and Gaga are discussing about their different ways on doing it πŸ™‚

And this is the repeater that controls the lighting circuits.

While Faris is busy working on Minecraft ver 1.9 on the main laptop in the front of the class.

IMG_7988

Minecraft 1.9 now has Elytra. It has a cape and will let the player to fly πŸ™‚ How awesome πŸ™‚

IMG_7991

Then things go ugly when Faris created command block that summons Creeper…

IMG_7994

And it just wouldn’t stop!!! Gaga came in rescue and help exploding those creepy creatures πŸ˜€

IMG_7995

And at the end of the class, Gaga explained in details how to create the automatic tunnel lighting in front of the class, yaaay πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 13 Feb 2016 – Multiple Choice in Python, Minecraft RedStone and Blockly

Standard

Hello! Today we invaded Digilife Dago again πŸ˜€

IMG_5351

Kids kinda miss this place, they had great experience from our last Coding Camp on December here πŸ™‚

IMG_5352

Digilife provide us with lots of facilities: display, AC, internet connection and such a digital ambience πŸ™‚

IMG_5353

Today, like usual, we have several threads in class. Some of the kids areΒ workingΒ on designing elevator and door with password with RedStone in Minecraft, some of them are working on Python code for multiple choices form and some of them are given intro to coding and algorithm πŸ˜‰

This is Malik working on his multiple choice code with Tkinter Python πŸ˜‰

IMG_5354

This is Faris and Azriel, doing the same Python thing πŸ™‚

IMG_5355

Cinta is designing her own quizzes to be implemented in Python. With Capt. Syahna assisting (while reading books :D)

IMG_5356

Capt. Zaki is keeping up with things πŸ˜‰

IMG_5357

This is Gaga and Aliyah. Gaga is working on his Minecraft RedStone things and Aliyah is working on Python πŸ™‚

IMG_5358

Rizqi is a newcomer but he catches up really quick. He is working on Blockly, while babysitting his brother πŸ™‚ How cute πŸ™‚

IMG_5359

And we also have Reza, working on Python, while Ismail and Roni working on their Minecraft Mods πŸ™‚

IMG_5360

Kids always gather up when one of them start creating weird or funny codes πŸ˜€ Faris is creating a quiz where all the questions are correct :))

IMG_5361

Cinta always has LOTS of idea. That’s why this class grows each time: because kids are limitless πŸ˜‰

IMG_5364

This is Roni’s new elevator design! He uses different tricks than last week!

IMG_5365

And this is a door controlled with a password. By Gaga πŸ˜‰

IMG_5362

He uses a very complicated gate circuits to make this work!

IMG_5363

And this is a screenshot of the Python codes we have been working on today πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 6 Feb 2016 – Exploring Minecraft Command Block and Red Stone

Standard

Today several kids didn’t show up because they were out of town for a long weekend, but we got lots of newcomers! πŸ˜‰

IMG_4951

Today we explored command block and redstone in Minecraft πŸ™‚ Cinta and Azriel don’t like to play Minecraft so they were given something else: creating quiz in Python, with GUI πŸ˜‰

IMG_4952

This is Roni, he is from Finland but VERY fluent in bahasa and sundanese πŸ˜€ He is very nice and can get along with others very quickly. And of course, he is fluent in Minecraft too πŸ˜€

IMG_4953

At the beginning, Roni’s computer took forever to load Minecraft in singleplayer mode. Thanks to Capt. Fizhan who fixed it by changing some settings so it worked nicely πŸ™‚

IMG_4954

Another newcomer is Rizqi. He caught up quickly too, and a very good Minecrafter! He wouldn’t let us ask about what he was doing until he finished it, and he created a trained controlled by redstone! How nice!

IMG_4955

And this is Michael and Kevin! Newcomers from last week. They are very good in Minecraft especially redstones, they created amazing things!

IMG_4956

Ardi is of course an expert in Minecraft. He can create almost anything! πŸ˜€

IMG_4957

These two kids are doing totally different thing πŸ˜€ Cinta is observing how to read answers for each questions and giving score for every correct ones.

IMG_4958

Kids.Β Infinite sources of creativity πŸ˜‰ ❀ This is Michael working on his things.

IMG_4959

And this is Kevin. They are twins with awesome processing power so it’s like having dual core processor at once πŸ˜€

IMG_4960IMG_4961

This is how Rizqi looks like when he’s not telling you what he is doing πŸ˜€

IMG_4962

Azriel is setting up his own workspace. Totally busy πŸ˜€

IMG_4963IMG_4964

Capt. Syahna is working on her writings while also assisting Cinta.

IMG_4965

So the class was given a task to create an elevator/lift. This is what Roni created. He created it with water πŸ™‚

IMG_4966IMG_4969

This one is Rizqi’s πŸ™‚

IMG_4970

This one is Ardi’s. Very advanced. With redstone, piston, etc.

IMG_4971

This one is Kevin’s πŸ™‚

IMG_4972

And this one is Michael’s πŸ˜‰

IMG_4973

At the end of the class Ardi created and showed us a totally awesome cart that moves back and forth with redstone block and rails. So cool! πŸ™‚

IMG_4974

We also created some repeater and clock circuits!

Bildschirmfoto 2016-02-06 um 6.11.34 PM

This one is a circuit to set time to day and night alternately! How cool! Ardi taught us how to do this! πŸ˜‰

Bildschirmfoto 2016-02-06 um 6.19.36 PM

We will going to explore more about this but next week we are going to do more programming to get the newcomers in the track! πŸ˜‰
