Congrats to all 20+ people who registered here for this challenge. It was definitely not easy. Two people asked questions on Discord and got answers. This led them to two videos which showed a possible route to a solution.
One solution is to find similar code on github and get it working. Its amazing how much code on github doesn’t work out of the box. But if you spend a few hours on stackoverflow, they come alive on your $5 ebay Android cellphone…
The winning entry used a guitar tuner which makes a very adequate car-horn-honk detector. Best of all, it works on any phone and with any car horn type…
For myself, I learned that kids only use Instagram, so I had to communicate there.

There are many more details that might make a follow on project. If I were head of the school board, I would make every student publish an app on the Google/Android Play store as part of their CV. It is as relevant as programming in Scratch. Best of all, it lets kids think in a whole new way. Instead of getting your girlfriend jewelry, build her a customized Android App. 😉
Now, these kids truly “think different”.
