The struggle was real

The struggle was real  Kanyempwe, Juma B. Introduction With a lot of design work to do most of the projects were behind schedule so we never had a chance to write a blog post. We were trying to make the final project on time so we divided the tasks to finish on time. Mary and Joseph were designing and coding the circuit for the wall suction system while I had to go to kariakoo market  looking for the components we need for the project. We had two design concepts which were very promising for our project; mechanical system and sensor system.   Mechanical System is the system we design using a valve to block the negative pressure from the hospital…

THE KILLER ROBOT

THE KILLER ROBOT- Kanyempwe, Juma B.   Introduction This week’s challenge at the DIT Design Studio was to design and build an autonomous robot for the sumo ring. This challenge was very unique and was one of the reasons why I was so excited about this. The main goal was to be the last robot in the ring so we were grouped in pairs. Thomas and I came up with so many great ideas on the robot we were going to design and all the crazy parts about the defense mechanism and how cool we wanted the robot to look like. “Killer robot” was the name we chose for our robot design. We then had to create a robot that…

Crushing Quest

Crushing Quest – Kanyempwe Juma B. Introduction In this week’s quest at the DIT Design Studio we had a final project prototype to complete. It was a great week for my team, we finished our first prototype ahead of time. So we had enough time to work on the problem statement and define the main objective of the project. From our last visit to Muhimbili National Hospital in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), we went back to the DIT Design Studio and downloaded our findings then defined the problem statement. Below are the objectives. For this prototype we came up with the best solutions possible: to protect the source of negative pressure at Muhimbili National Hospital and create an…

BEGINNER’S MIND

BEGINNER’S MIND…Kanyempwe, Juma B. Quick Tip! One of the reasons people don’t learn any subject or skill faster is because they feel like they already know something about it, so they can’t learn something new…Does that make sense!? And one of the keys to be a faster learner is to begin with a beginner’s mind because if your cup is full you can’t put new information into it!!-Superbrain Beginner’s Mind:- In this week’s activity, we had hospital visits to Muhimbili National Hospital and Comprehensive Community Based Rehabilitation in Tanzania (CCBRT). The internship is super cool, so far we are constantly learning new skills everyday. Our main focus was on the mini project and the final project.   At    Muhimbili National Hospital…
