STEMng Digest: Episode 43

Welcome to another episode of STEMng wdigest. This is the 43rd episode of the series, a series where we bring to you some of the best articles written by STEMng authors.

As a background information, 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.

More information about STEMng activities are found here, while details of what it means to be part of steemSTEM can be found here, as well.

As we usually do, we have sifted through the STEMng tag and even though there were several good posts to choose from, below are the posts that stood out which constitute our 43rd episode.

1: Laser Physics and its groundbreaking invention #1: The Optical Tweezers.

How much do you know about the laser? Perhaps I should ask how much you wish to know. @emperorhassy seems to be taking us through the laser journey and it is going to be an interesting one with the look of this first episode.

2: Why you should prefer eating cannabis over smoking them

If you are a cannabis consumer in any form, then is a must-read post. A detailed and well-sourced article by @joelagbo explaining with scientific backings the reason why consuming cannabis in eatable form is better than in smoke form.


A nice and creative right-up about a rare human disorder known as moebius syndrome which in some quarters has been linked with the inability to smile, especially in those suffering from the disorder. A good read from @yhubi

4: Understanding Sleep Better - Second Edition: What's Oversleeping & It's Effects, What's Microsleeping & Is it Bad For Us And More...

How much do you really know about sleep? @menoski is here to educate you all about the science behind sleep, how much is too much and what are the effects. A concluding part of a series.

5 : Which is more better for your solar installation? Monocrystalline modules or polycrystalline modules

The world is moving towards clean energy and solar seems to be leading this charge. This article by @sunkanmi02 serves to educate us on the best panel to consider when installing solar power generating set in your homes or businesses.
