STEMng Digest: Episode 40

This digest is the 40th episode of the #stemng digest series where we bring to you some of the best posts under the #stemng tag in the past edition.

For those that do not know yet, stemng is a sub-community of steemSTEM, a community-driven project which seeks to promote well-written and informative Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics posts by Nigerians on Steemit. The project involves submitting quality STEM-related posts to the steemSTEM management for upvoting and resteeming where applicable.
