SteemSTEM Distilled #57
Welcome to the 57th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a bi-weekly curation effort by the members of the @steemstem team.
SteemSTEM is a community driven project which seeks to promote well-written and informative Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics posts on Steemit. The project involves curating STEM-related posts through upvoting, resteeming, offering constructive feedback, supporting scientific contests, and other related activities.
Our team scours the platform for original and quality content.
After working through thousands (literally!) of STEM-related posts and upvoting more than 150 that we deemed to be worthy, we proudly present you our top 6 handpicked choices for this Monday-Wednesday period.
NATURE INSPIRED INVENTIONS --- Dams; and man stooped to learn from the little engineers of the animal kingdom.
Don't you just love @whileponderin's series on inventions inspired by the natural world? This episode discusses cute beavers and how these rodents "taught" us to make dams. A post you don't wanna miss!
Another beautiful post for our compilation comes from @conficker and talks about "intruders" in our ear canal! Read this one to learn what you could find in your ear without even knowing!
A wonderful piece of writing by @abumaryam shows us how harmful ordinary cement production can be for the environment and what benefits bio-cement has over it.
A fantastic post by @mrbreeziewrites combines a story with knowledge and teaches us all about MEMS or Micro-Electromechanical Systems if you like. Check this out if you haven't already!
@effofex has got us a very interesting post about microbial life in NASA's clean rooms and the possible dangers if these little fellows ever make it on another planet... by accident.
Read @suzanrs's excellent post on... the origins of aggresion. Follow her as she explains how aggression and tantrums are a normal behavior that people are born with.
For the sake of transparency we feel we need to clarify how our nomination process works; each issue is compiled by certain members of the SteemSTEM community. This mid-week's editorial team was comprised of @ruth-girl.
The editorial team chooses their favorite posts for the week and each issue is the result of their joined effort. In order to keep the process fair, posts written by the editorial team are excluded from the nomination process.
Don't be discouraged if you didn't make it on this issue. The competition is harsh and there is always a next time :)
During the last two weeks, steemstem supported with more than a (possibly split) full vote the following authors:
@adetola, @agbona, @alexs1320, @azulear, @carloserp-2000, @chloroform, @conficker, @dedicatedguy, @effofex, @egotheist, @florae, @gentleshaid, @greenrun, @henrychidiebere, @irelandscape, @kingabesh, @lamouthe, @lemouth, @lordneroo, @mobbs, @mountainwashere, @mrbreeziewrites, @olajidekehinde, @procrastilearner, @rharphelle, @rubies, @ruth-girl, @samminator, @sco, @sogless, @suzanrs
We are expecting them to strongly engage the community in return :)
All curation rewards earned will be used to fund @steemstem project functioning and activities.
See you all next Monday (or Tuesday :D)!
