2020 Fall – Little Inventor Level 2

Halocode

Inventions start here!

This class is designed for students that have had previous experience in mBlock (Scratch-based) coding or mYe’s Robotics classes. Students will learn how to use HaloCode (a wireless single board) to create fun Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligent (AI) projects like: SOS signal light, Digital Smart Dice, Step measurement Pedometer, Data collection into Google Sheet through Google AI technology, Labyrinth Game, etc.

At the end of the camp, students will be introduced to MakeX Competition (the third largest STEM competition in the world) and how to enter the MakeX Spark competition in September, 2020.

MAKEBLOCK

mBlock

mBlock 5 is developed based on Scratch 3.0. It supports block-based programming, which makes coding intuitive and easy to pick up. All that students need to do is dragging and dropping those color-coded blocks. They can quickly gain an understanding of the basics of coding and focus on the more important thing, Creating.

Halocode

HaloCode is a wireless single board computer. With its built- in Wi-Fi support and microphone, the students can easily bring your board into the IoT projects and add speech recognition ability to it. It comes with plenty of sensors, such as 12 x Programmable RGB LED light, a Motion Sensor, a Touch Sensor and more. Using HaloCode, everyone can make their own creations, in an easy and fun way!

 

Hardware: Students need to purchase their own HaloCode from Amazon. Please allow enough time for shipping before the class started.

Coach William: Computer Engineering graduate of Boston University. I am currently an Integration Test Engineer. I enjoy building small electronics and software. So far I have designed and built several small raspberry pi remote cars for collision avoidance, written a computer vision software to track cell movements, and developed a catalog classifier for IKEA's yearly catalog. Robotics have always been one of my interests, and sharing my knowledge with the community is one of my greatest joy.
