Today we have an astronomy communicator and founder of langitselatan, Avivah Yamani shares about “Science and Technology for Astronomy” πŸ™‚

IMG_5452IMG_5453

Astronomy is a very interesting discipline. It starts from the earth

IMG_5454

to millions of galaxies..

IMG_5455

That leaves one big question unanswered.

IMG_5456

It is interesting to see astronomy on the past

IMG_5457

compared with astrology

IMG_5458

to the astronomy today

IMG_5459

Astronomy is very useful to learn other subjects and disciplines

IMG_5460

It can be collaborated with anything

IMG_5461

langitselatan was established based on these facts

IMG_5462

Started with Centaur on 2005, langitselatan is surviving until today

IMG_5463

langitselatan uses new media to communicate astronomy to the world

IMG_5464

It also implements astronomy in the real world

IMG_5465

e-book and games are some products created by langitselatan to implement and communicate astronomy to people.

And we are also informed about the upcoming total solar eclipse πŸ™‚

IMG_5474

in details!

IMG_5475IMG_5476IMG_5477IMG_5479IMG_5480

langitselatan also takes role in education society πŸ™‚

IMG_5481IMG_5482

but sure, with lots of challenges to overcome

IMG_5483IMG_5484

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 16 Jan 2016 – Creating Apps

Standard

Today we continue working on our client-server code in Python, login password in Scratch, countdown to 2015 code in Python and creating apps with App Inventor! πŸ˜‰

This is Farrell demonstrating his solar system’s orbit code in Python πŸ˜‰ The code use real data from NASA and it is really interesting to see the track of each planets based on their speed and Astronomical Unit (AU). The code use Python turtle library to draw the trajectory πŸ˜‰

Faris is working on his Android Studio and Malik is debugging his Python client-server code.

IMG_3752

Reza, on the corner has created his own counter with start and stop button, and he had created some apps with Apps Inventor before so it is easy for him to follow the class today πŸ™‚

We have a new student today, Aliyah, the girl on the back with stripes shirt, is waiting for her emulator loading πŸ™‚

IMG_3753

We have a little company leading the class today! πŸ˜€

IMG_3754

How cute! πŸ˜‰ ❀

IMG_3757IMG_3758

Today we create one button and one image with App Inventor. We will set the image to be invisible.

When the button is clicked, the image will be visible πŸ™‚ The coding is using Blockly πŸ™‚

After the code is finished, we build the project.

And then connect it to the Android Emulator (should be downloaded and installed first. And the computer should be restarted).

Bildschirmfoto 2016-01-16 um 6.14.10 PM

If there is any emulator updates then before running the project, it will download the update first.

Bildschirmfoto 2016-01-16 um 6.06.54 PM

This is the emulator

Bildschirmfoto 2016-01-16 um 11.06.34 AM

And there we go! We have it running! πŸ˜‰

The problem with App Inventor that it needs a stable and fast internet connection. The connection and loading process is so slow, we should do something else to wait until it displays our project on the simulator. Hopefully we can figure out how to make it work smoothly because today some computers cannot be installed with the emulator and the ones with emulator installed took hundred years for the emulator to show up.

We will work on it next week! πŸ™‚
