Are you afraid of speaking in public? Are you nervous? You don’t know what to say or what to do? Not sure if you should put your hands on your pockets? eLab associated with Algarve Toastmasters Club to promote a session about public presentation skills where you can learn more and, who knows, lose some of your fears. If you like, you can keep attending more Algarve Toastmasters Club sessions. (more…)
After another workshop in eLab, we can be proud for organizing another successful event. In this second workshop, all the participants had the opportunity to learn about some of the most common methods used for the homemade manufacture of printed circuit boards. A total of 5 methods of transferring the circuitry to the board were demonstrated: UV light exposure with acetate sheet and greaseproof paper, toner transfer to a magazine sheet and to foil and finally by applying a negative dry film. Also, 2 corrosion processes were demonstrated: through iron perchlorate and through a mixture of muriatic acid and hydrogen peroxide.
