Starting Sunday, February 13th 2022, Hive will have its own Community Celebration Week. And for this occasion, @guiltyparties is challenging all Hive users to publish a post about their favorite community!
So I'm going to talk about the wonderful people of STEMsocial and why you should have a look if you don't know them.
STEMsocial is a community about sharing knowledge and ideas about any STEM topics (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), it also brings together people with the same degree of curiosity but from very different backgrounds (fields, locations, expertise levels, ...). Browsing through the posts, you will always learn something new, and the curation team make a great job selecting some very interesting posts each week.
I joined this community in January 2018 (when it was still called SteemSTEM) and was warmly welcomed by everyone. I'm not the most active writer on the blockchain, throughout the 4 years I spent here, I posted around 30 posts about topics related to robotics, electronics, and my different projects. Sharing my posts on StemSocial allowed me to improve my writing skills (I hope ^^), get feedback from other members, and have interesting discussions about many topics.
And my favorite part of being in this community is interacting with others, online or in-person, like in Geneva for the first SteemSTEM meetup organized by @lemouth in CERN where we visited the Large Hadron Collider. Here are some of the reports from people who were there :

And I was lucky enough to meet some of them again the same year, this time for a multiple days trip to Florence and Pisa in Italy, where @Suesa and @bendelgreco organized the second meetup. During this one, we got to visit the VIRGO lab where they detect gravitational waves emitted by cosmic events like 2 merging black holes or supernovas, and we got to meet some Utopian.io community members as well. You can read here a report from Suesa.

Theses meetups are memories that I hold to dearly, and I hope we can organize others one day :)
Thank you to the team and all members of this community!
And if you haven't already, go read the post for @gentleshaid and the one from @mobbs also celebrating STEMsocial!
