STEMng Digest: Week 19

in StemSociallast month

It is Wednesday, the 23rd of September, the year 2020, and another day to bring to our dearest readers a new edition of the STEMng digest. Below are few words about STEMng Digest:

STEMng Digest is a weekly publication where we showcase the works of Nigerian content creators in the field of STEMs on the hive blockchain. We curate various articles, videos, etc. published by Nigerians and supported by the stemsocial community account. We are a sub-community of the stemsocial community, a community that has been supporting stem authors on the hive blockchain fro about four years now. Before going into the list of curated content for this last week, let us look at some statistics for the said period.

Statistics for this week

Seven STEM-related articles from five authors were supported by stemsocial this week. This is a drop from the previous week where we had eight articles from six authors being supported. The drop in figures is directly related to the absence of some of the veteran authors such as @loveforlove, @empressteemah, @emperorhassy, @steepup. etc. in the community. Perhaps real-life issues kept them off the chain. Hopefully, they will be back writing in no time.

Below is a list and a link to all the articles published by Nigerian authors that met the curation guidelines of the stemsocial community. Supports for the authors are encouraged in whatever form they might be offered. These include reblogging, upvoting, sharing on other social media, or even tipping.
