@davidm2i got around to updating our school's page which included
1. adding emojis to each header
2. adding a donation box
@arav2learning rust! (frankly because I'm procrastinating doing school work)
@Shreeya0Hello Delhi, I have got multiple submissions on the 10th and I am roaming around...
I have a love-hate relationship with my school
@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 159
Summer's approaching, that means its time for unnecessary but important school projects season :angry-duo:
I have to complete a project for each subject of mine so I'm starting early
@alialiwa20054In May 2023, I have, for the first time, sponsored & organized a hackathon! 🎉
The event invited fellow students of all levels of mastery in computer science, and allowed participants at my school to form teams, make friends, innovate, win prizes, sharpen skills of all types (computer science, entrepreneurship, and beyond), and have a fun & memorable experience. 🎁
It was also a major personal goal for me that I am happy to have achieved before I graduate high school. :smiley-twemoji::thumbsup-dino:
Taking my past personal memories at hackathons I've attended, such as BetaNYC (March 2020) and Hack Club's Epoch Vermont (December 2022) :epoch:
The 2-day-long McCown Hacks :mccownhacks: also made a great closing to the third year (2022-2023) of Gaynor McCown Hack Club :gaynormccown:, and an awesome milestone of my nearly complete high school career 🎓 , in which my passion for computer science was sparked! :gaynor-mccown-gradient:

@Sameer0Finally my school game me something! Good marks in English and Entrepreneurship really paying off!:beatsaber::thinking:
@Shreeya0I forgot that i have psychology class presentation today
Did the research yesterday late night and now I need to leave for school in 10 mins☠️
Where are the practice hoursss!!
Also I am psychology test today*
@Marios7+Was studying basic computer science for school and accidentally dropped my book... Woops it now is splitted in many parts. let's call it a "feature" now
@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 129
More C++, i've signed up myself up for a school competition to see how far i can take C++ skills (also as a mild excuse to get a break from physics pain but we don't talk about that)
got a small math test tomorrow so studied for it, nothing else
@Sameer0ANIME BREAK! ANIME BREAK!:beatsaber: Everyone get an anime break!!
Man how i binge watch entire seasons!:sadcatok:
Current watch : Welcome to Demon school! Iruma-Kun
@Marios7+Surely nothing will go wrong with light gaming! 🙃
p.s.I worked on a simple Godot game for school, turns out their computers sre so old it didn't have OpenGL2
@ShubhamPatil1Just found a Qatarian Riyal casually chilling in my school today
@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 117
ok small post since I'm really tired, i aced my math test with a near perfect score and so that's awesome, other than school i didn't do anything other than watching youtube videos and solving some more rustlings exercises
@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 107
Oh man this is gettin hard, I’ve had to stay up till 2 again so I could finish my chem homework and my school project, nothing else today
@Sarthak0After months of hardwork, the soundboard project has been completed! Onto testing and helping non-verbal and semi-verbal students express themselves across our high school campus :)
@Sarthak0Learning about diffusers with fast.ai has been really interesting. Today, I tested what I'd learned by hosting a mini-lecture with some of my peers that are part of our school's Hack Club, and began to dive deeper into U-Nets and Variational Autoencoders to understand how diffusion models work under the hood. We also continued work on our soundboard!
@Sarthak0Continued working on the soundboard today with the rest of my comp sci 3 team: a project to assist non-verbal and semi-verbal students at my school express emotions by touching an emote that is connected to a speaker to describe how they are feeling. The design is coming out really pretty. Also, continued my work on the fast.ai part 2 course!
@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 95
Guess who ruined his sleep schedule with school starting on monday, MEE :sadcatok:
Did some organic chemistry revison and some more pygame coding (damn i need to write better scrapbook posts)
@Omay0Played in a Mario kart championship at school today. I won and didn't lose a single game.
@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 67
Its the senior meaning its also my turn to go through the college application roller-coaster, i made a initial college list and attended a tufts virtual open day. I came late from school so that's all i could do (and studying chem)
@AmirArbouch-U04FNLQ9H8V0WHW day +6: after hours struggling with wifi connection, I have succeeded to get on hack club slack and make a post on the scrapbook. Here is what I did during my week without internet:
• print time on serial monitor thanks to the RTC library that I've already install (i have also displayed them on my lcd screen but i forgot to take pictures)
• read some books about C programming language to code my arduino better (don't have C++ books but it was the best I got without internet 🥲)
this week I went finish my holidays to the mountains ... but I forgot to take my arduino 😭 no progress this week sorry if my project take a long time to get finished (I think i'll not be able to continue during school)
@Joel-U04FVMC0D3N0Day 10 of the Winter Hardware Wonderland :winter-hardware-wonderland:
Not much done today, I’ve been a bit caught up with school at the moment
• made a to do list for future updates to the code
Make sure to check out the GitHub repo (Puffball101961/rgbmatrix) if you are interested in replicating my project
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Day 8 of WHW - #hardware-party - I wished I got work done but today school happened to have more work today so hopefully tomorrow I will finish off the project.
@AyushPaul-U02GHNT70TB0Could not post yesterday because I had FTC states, and today I was running UniHacks! But yesterday I tested the battery pack in the deepend by using it as a base of operations for controlling a monitor and powering my backpack, leaving only one cable running in and out of the bag.
@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 48
#hardware-party day 0100
i got called up to school to receive an award, that was fun but that took a whopping 8 hours so no progress today.
besides, how on earth do i read this rst code?
i might have to either
a: rewrite the code in node and use trello's official library, or
b: use the API directly which is going to be a lot of junk code
oh well future me will figure it out
@cytronicoder1~I promise the sprig gaming controller is coming pls~ :prayge:
Doing some research + planning for my upcoming consumer choice exhibition at my school! My product is ✨ plastic water bottles ✨ and I'm looking at various externalities.
I also started designing what my actual board would look like! :roo-yay:
@karmanyaahm7+Day 2 of Winter Wonderland #hardware-party :winter-hardware-wonderland:, building Project Oreo, a custom rubber ducky.
On the software side, I got CircuitPython building in a Pure Nix Shell. Turns out, some Python libraries are built using flint instead of setup.py. Thankfully, there's a mode in Nix to handle that. I can now modify the code that ships with a UF2 by default, making deployment just a one-file-copy (very important when you have 20 of something).
Next steps: Look at Micropython manifests to figure out how to include data/image files in the UF2. Track the received setup packets (host fingerprint), and make a function to transmit those to Python from C.
On the Hardware side, my friend designed and 3d printed the first prototype of the case at school. It doesn't quite fit (see USB Port area), so needs a second prototype.
@HsingEdward-U04HQ7LL1380I have written my basic FlyOS web console framework. But in China, school starts at 7AM and doesn't end until 10PM, so I don't have much time. However, I just need to work hard on the weekend and will finish my project quickly
@AyushPaul-U02GHNT70TB0:winter-hardware-wonderland:Winter Hardware Wonderland!:winter-hardware-wonderland:
IntelliBag | Day 1
The first day of making IntelliBag! (name due for change soon). Nearly all my parts arrived in a last minute Amazon order, which worked out perfectly. This project is intended to be a “smart backpack” with a bunch of cool new features everyday!
And today, for day 1, I’m doing a dry run of all the USB-based “wiring” and electronics.
I’m going to keep all the electronics hidden in a secret flap of the bag, with waterproof port covers that are easy to access from the outside. Plus, the extension cable will be conveniently located next to the laptop slot.
Even when it’s not in the bag, this setup is super powerful! I’m using a USB power bank that’s connected to a powered USB hub - this way, I can power any device I want and even give pass-through charging to my laptop! And the power bank itself has passthrough charging, which means that if I plug any USB-C charger into the external port, it’ll start charging every device in the bag AND store some charge in the battery itself!
But that’s not all! The power bank supports both input and output for that port, so I can get high-wattage output too! I’m so excited to see how this all turns out - it’s going to be amazing!
@OrbitalDev0❄️ WHW Day 1/10
It was storming this morning so I got the joy of rushing downstairs to start waterproofing! I had much panics.
After that, I had school. When I got home, I spent time updating sensor accuracy and adding a status LED.
All in all, I also got a lot of valuable weather data to work in making observations with!
• Start on real enclosure
• Work on power sourcing
• Deploy Video server
• Join a Sprint 💨
Picture alt text: A picture of the night sky that finished off as clear. It looks like I won't need to worry about the waterproofing tomorrow!
@rithul0Officially an alum now, Thank you for all the good time, BGS National Public School
@VincentDoan-U04K2KPC3C50Day 1/10 of #hardware-party!
Got everything I need for the project now. I'm going to really start tomorrow because of school work and my 3d printer not working properly.
@Aiden0I’ll be posting everyday at 6:00PM CT to allow for some building time after school, i’m a bit late but i got caught up in bandaid mod, tape mod + laying out switches and keys on my desk!
@parkalex3800Me abusing my school account’s unlimited storage to store mc server backups
@ShubhamPatil1Random child from my school spinning my water bottle (dw he consented to this photo)
@reesericci1:grid: I present to you all, Teacher Font Bingo, a bingo card filled with ridiculous fonts you'd see in teacher slideshows and other assignments! Go about your school day and see how many you spot! :grid:
@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 29
nothing much since school tommorow and a physics test too, i did sort all my electronics though so thats a win
@Sean7+Did some api typing... damn school days take it out of me
@cytronicoder1In order to reach sticker epiphany, I have add a few
just a few
more stickers onto my school laptop collection ✨
@Sam7+Optimized my ✨ Java Snake Game 🐍 for a summative project!
Originally, it was flickering and lagging really badly on the slow school computers.
I rewrote the method used to paint the components, that removed the flickering.
Correctly implemented Timers, which got rid of most of the lag.
It should be able to run faster without problems now! It feels so much more smoother.
I'm excited to #ship this when I'm done!@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 9 but not really cause SCHOOOOOOL!!! :blob_sad:
not much happened cause, you know, SCHOOL
did some extra work on winterlings and did some coding problems cause why not
i'm gonna have to decide whether i'm taking part in #hardware-party or not, doesn't help since apparently my finals will begin at the same period of building the items:confuse:
@ZeroQL7+#w-of-the-day day 8
site's ready and builds fine locally,
but i have no clue why its not deploying in production
school tomorrow so gotta sleep early (pain) so gonna have to debug this later ugh
