Arduino Programming, Day #1 πŸ™‚

IMG_0195 IMG_0196

This is Salman, Grade 3

IMG_0197

and Kiran, Grade 5 πŸ™‚

IMG_0198

and Kiran’s little sister, Diara πŸ˜‰

IMG_0199

We started by unboxing our Arduino and take a look at components and sensors

IMG_0200

Then we start to Blink the LED onboard to make sure the board is OK

IMG_0201 IMG_0202

Wow Capt. Zaki looks so gigantic compared to Salman πŸ˜€

IMG_0203

While Capt. Syahna had a thick book to read

 

IMG_0205

and Capt. BR had piles of paperworks πŸ™‚

IMG_0206

Then we Blink a LED on breadboard

IMG_0207

 

IMG_0204

Capt. Fizhan helped to untie the jumper wires

IMG_0208

.. so that Salman dan Kiran can start πŸ™‚

IMG_0209

Kiran’s blinking LED πŸ™‚

IMG_0212

Capt. Fizhan made his own schematic too

IMG_0210

and blinked! πŸ™‚

IMG_0214

This is Salman’s πŸ™‚

IMG_0217

A productive class πŸ™‚

IMG_0218 IMG_0219

After one LED, we were ready for multiple LEDs πŸ™‚

IMG_0220

With small breadboard, only 4 LEDs fit in πŸ™‚

IMG_0221 IMG_0222

Girls tend to be very patient and detail πŸ™‚

IMG_0223

They put the components so neatly πŸ™‚

IMG_0224

And we got a surprise! Capt. Awa dropped by and brought us this!

Capt. Awa was off duty but he brought his stuff to work on in the class

IMG_0227

Awa’s Little Bits collection πŸ™‚ SUPERB πŸ˜€

IMG_0228

Surely Capt. Awa got lots thing to do with all those stuff πŸ™‚

IMG_0229

This is for example πŸ™‚

IMG_0233

Ok Capt. Fizhan’s multiple LED has worked

IMG_0232

and he moved on the another task, helping Capt. BR with the paperworks πŸ˜€

IMG_0235

While Capt. Awa still tinkering with the Little Bits

IMG_0236

And Salman’s father and lil brother were busy working too

IMG_0237

Everybody has got something to do in the class πŸ˜‰

IMG_0238

IMG_0239 IMG_0240

IMG_0241 IMG_0242

IMG_0243 IMG_0244

IMG_0245

We were so busy but ready to help each other πŸ˜‰

IMG_0246

IMG_0247

Capt. BR and Capt. Zaki discussing about creating a light saber with gyro πŸ™‚

IMG_0248

Little Diara accompanying her big sis πŸ™‚

IMG_0249

Salman took some time to type down the code but he finished all the task πŸ˜‰

IMG_0250

Kiran too

IMG_0251

The worksheet for today, all checked πŸ™‚

IMG_0252

IMG_0254

Capt. BR tinkering with micro servo

IMG_0253

And Capt. Awa creating some 3D design πŸ˜€

IMG_0255

The class was full with scattered things πŸ™‚

IMG_0256

And that’s all because we’re doing LOTS of things!

IMG_0257 IMG_0258

We also did lots of discussions πŸ™‚

IMG_0259 IMG_0260

Even off duty, Capt. Awa is always ready to help πŸ™‚ ❀

IMG_0261

ok that’s all for today πŸ™‚

IMG_0262

After the class Capt. BR and Capt. Awa discussed about the micro servo, they’re planning to do lots of projects πŸ™‚

IMG_0263

The container of 37 sensors was opened accidentally and the sensors just got mixed up πŸ˜€ Capt. Syahna was busy sorting them out and put them in the right place πŸ™‚

IMG_0265

Tomorrow we will explore more components and sensors! πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 3 Sep 2016 – Arduino RGB LED and More

Standard

Hello we’re back!!!

IMG_1351

We had lots and lots of kids today! πŸ™‚ We had more new kids signing up! Lots of kids didn’t come to the class but there was so many, so that we ran out of tables πŸ˜€

IMG_1445

Azriel had to set up his table here LOL (thanks Telkomsel :D)
IMG_1352

Parents were there too helping their kids setting up things
IMG_1353

IMG_1354

We had to arrange seat positions to make kids easier to learn because most of the kids were learning Arduino now but some of them are new to programming so they were given intro to programming and some of them are still interested in Java Programming so we had to put them in groups πŸ™‚
IMG_1355

Zahran is helping Malik getting started πŸ™‚

IMG_1356

Rezandra helping Darrell to download Arduino software and do some set up πŸ™‚
IMG_1357

May is helping Nanin to find the web for programming intro πŸ™‚

IMG_1358

Kids and parents keep coming in πŸ™‚
IMG_1359

Areli opened his ProCodeCG Arduino Kit right away and rebuild the circuit he did last night πŸ™‚

IMG_1360

Tyo is helping Vian to create games with Game Maker πŸ™‚
IMG_1362

And this is the result πŸ™‚

IMG_1376

IMG_1377

This is Awa helping Raza πŸ™‚ These ProCodeCG Kids are so amazing! πŸ™‚

IMG_1363

Awa is very proactive πŸ™‚ He assisted Raza from beginning to end πŸ˜‰

IMG_1368

The class kept running even though there was problems with the display
IMG_1364

So that Mas Ody from Digilife had to fix it again and again πŸ˜€ Thanks mas πŸ™‚

IMG_1365

Ok once the screen back, we learned how to read value of resistors πŸ™‚ It was fun πŸ™‚
IMG_1366

Kids should learn basic electronics so that they will understand that if they don’t put resistors on their LED circuits it can burn the LED or even the Arduino board πŸ™‚

IMG_1367

Then we started to learn about RGB LED (we have learned about LED in the previous class)

IMG_1370

Then we started to create the circuit

IMG_1371

And worked πŸ™‚ This one is Muhammad’s πŸ™‚
IMG_1372

The most soothing scenes mostly found in ProCodeCG Kids Coding Class is the connections between kids that help other kids πŸ™‚ The boy on the left is Isa, May’s little brother (May has just joined the class today), he took over his sister’s computer but with the help of Nanin (the girl on the right), Isa stopped losing temper and start learning with Nanin πŸ™‚
IMG_1374

Now May (the girl with brown hijab) can do her programming while Nanin, amazingly took care of Isa πŸ™‚ Unbelievable! πŸ™‚

IMG_1375

This one is Yogi, working on functions programming πŸ™‚

IMG_1378

Ozan too πŸ™‚

IMG_1379

Renald (boy in blue shirt) is a newcomer too πŸ™‚ Too bad his laptop was having trouble connecting to the internet so he had to wait for long 😦 Azka (the girl with green shirt) is also new, she is working on her programming intro task πŸ™‚
IMG_1380

This class is always full of bright brains and lovely interactions πŸ™‚ This is Malik with his brother πŸ™‚ Lots of ProCodeCG kids bring their younger brother/sister and this is good πŸ™‚

IMG_1381

The kids were probably sit next to another doing different thing, but all was having fun πŸ™‚
IMG_1383

And help each other πŸ™‚

IMG_1384
IMG_1385

Faris started to connect Arduino to an ultrasonic sensor πŸ™‚

IMG_1386

IMG_1400

IMG_1401

The circuit

IMG_1403

It displays the distance of the object detected by the sensor πŸ™‚

IMG_1402

And then Faris modified the circuit, adding more LEDs and modify the code so on certain distance different LED will light up! Yaay πŸ™‚

IMG_1408

Farrell (white shirt) is doing research about gyroscope. He’s going to make a project with Arduino and gyroscope! πŸ™‚
IMG_1388

Raza almost finished his task for today! Yaaay!
IMG_1389

While Isa kept wandering around

IMG_1391

And hug Ozan from the back πŸ˜€
IMG_1392

Isa cheered up Ozan for finishing the code πŸ˜€

IMG_1393

Ok now Isa is under Ozan’s custody LOL

 

IMG_1397

Tyo was working on his Java project. He couldn’t make compile it with Netbeans so we had to do it in command prompt πŸ˜€
IMG_1394

We had to set up environment variables inΒ path

IMG_1396

and classpath, to be able to run Java from command prompt πŸ™‚

IMG_1395

We use vi editor to type it in

Bildschirmfoto 2016-09-03 um 3.16.24 PM

compile with javac and run it with java command

Bildschirmfoto 2016-09-03 um 3.16.36 PM

And it worked πŸ˜‰

Happy parents of Nafis πŸ™‚ Nafis is also a newcomer! Welcome!!! πŸ™‚

IMG_1398

After the class, the place was totally a mess πŸ˜€

IMG_1399

But don’t worry! While Tyo was being interviewed by Digilife

IMG_1405

and Azriel being interviewed afterwards..
IMG_1406

Awa is always ready to tidy up! πŸ™‚
IMG_1410

happily!!! Thanks Awaa for being so helpful πŸ™‚

IMG_1412

While this one, Wibi (little brother of Edo who didn’t come to the class today) liked to play in the server room πŸ™‚
IMG_1424

When the light went up he realized that he sit on a high chair

IMG_1425

so he cried for help
IMG_1426

And Fizhan came to rescue πŸ˜€

IMG_1427

Don’t worry kid πŸ˜€
IMG_1428

Kids are so lovable, and their interaction with each other is such a cure to every soul πŸ™‚

IMG_1429

After class kids were still around to play πŸ˜€ They play hide and seek and everything πŸ™‚
IMG_1430 IMG_1431

And Wibi very interested in Awa’s Arduino on Lego πŸ˜‰
IMG_1433

Another happy parent!

IMG_1434

Awa’s mom was working while waiting for Awa πŸ™‚ (she’s has just graduated from Coding Mum πŸ˜‰
IMG_1435

More playing πŸ™‚ Aika (Zaky’s little sister) cried because she thought other kids were going to hurt his brother because all kids were running after Zaky LOL
IMG_1437

Ok time to go home Farrell? Don’t forget about our gyroscope project okay?

IMG_1438

Awaaaa are you going to stay here forever? πŸ˜€
IMG_1440

Apparently yes πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Other kids joined LOL

IMG_1446

See you next week kids! πŸ™‚ ❀ ❀ ❀
