Our top choices

Indepth Study and Insight into Wrinkle formation; Age Dependent or hereditary?

Wrinkles? Are they a sign one is getting old? This is a common belief, but this may not be true. @cyprianj provides this week a very nice analysis explaining how wrinkles coiuld form, especially at an early age. Sometimes the environment plays a role, sometimes genetics. More information is in the post!

Strengths and weaknesses of 3D printing in crises situations and in general

Our 3D printing expert @robotics101 is nicely details how he got involved in the recent (and on-going) COVID-19 crisis in France. Armed with a 3D printer, he took part to the production of material useful for the hospitals. He not only shares his experience in his post, but also detail the associated strengths and weaknesses.

I understand how difficult it is to put all these together weekly amidst your tight schedule. The community is lucky to have you at the elms of affairs. Congratulations to the featured authors as usual and it is good to see that the engagement stats keep going up for the community. Kudos to everyone.

Greetings friends, you see good articles in the recommendations, I have had the opportunity to read some very good, with a fluid and clear writing, I congratulate all the authors in the community and also acknowledge those who make it possible for STEMsocial to stay active and generate very good proposals at a good time. We are still in communication !

Wonderful that we have another edition of Distilled. I know it takes a lot of effort, but it's the one event of the week that ties all the activities on STEMsocial together. It's called leadership :) Without that, organizations don't thrive.

I'll have to read the article about stinking toilet and gutter water...I was trying to avoid it, but I guess grim truth is unavoidable 😎 .

Congratulations to all the supported and featured authors!
