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…

Make it work

PROTOTYPING A prototype refers to the preliminary version of a device from which other devices will be developed. It is usually used for testing a concept. This week our group was mainly dealing with finalizing our prototypes which were on the IR-thermometer. The thermometer infers temperature from a portion of the thermal radiation emitted by an object being measured. It is sometimes called a laser thermometer as a laser is used to help aim the thermometer. It works by measuring the temperature of infrared energy which every material or object with a temperature above absolute zero radiates. A lens focuses the infrared radiation onto a detector which in turn converts this energy into an electric signal. After compensating for the ambient…

COMPLETING INFRARED THERMOMETER PROJECT

COMPLETING INFRARED THERMOMETER PROJECT By: Arslan Dogar Infrared thermometer was the most challenging project assigned during the Industrial Practical Training period, it required us to code the Arduino program, testing the code by building actual circuit, soldering the circuit and diagnosis, 3d printing the housing design and finally fitting the circuit into the housing and testing. Initial Testing of the Circuit Some of these procedures proved to be very challenging and caused a lot of delay to the completion of the project, extending the time span to approximately 3 weeks. The main challenge that we faced during the project was the soldering and diagnosis of the soldered circuit, initially the delay had been caused by female headers not being available….
