Passion for STEM is a science-based blog founded by two Scottish secondary school students – Susan Chen and Jiangmin Hou.
This blog explores a range of topics within science, technology, engineering and mathematics and our thoughts concerning them. Our posts are informal and are mainly based on personal interests.

Co- Founder and Life Sciences Writer – Jiangmin Hou
Hello, I am Jiangmin and I am interested in all science related items, especially in medicine. For me, medicine is human beings and science coming together in perfect harmony. Whether we like it or not, medicine dictates our everyday lives. When we are born, vaccines prevent us being harmed by deadly diseases. Medicine keeps the inner workings of our body running until the end of our time.
Co-Founder and Physics/Physical Sciences Writer – Susan Chen
My interests in science are broad, ranging from theory of natural selection to dark matter. My main fascination lies in physics, especially cosmology. Professor Stephen Hawking’s passion and work ethic is a huge inspiration to me in maintaining my desire to understand the Universe in more depth. I also enjoy briefly educating myself on topics outside school taught physics such as Quantum Mechanics and Relativity in my free time.
Engineering Writer – Tito Adesanya
Hi, I’m Tito and I am passionate about all areas of STEM, particularly engineering – this is a passion which has been manifested in my late night spent making random things and my strong belief that its many fields will help change the world. From the phone I am using to type this short introduction to large metal birds that can carry up to 400 people, F1 cars and machines, engineering is in every inch of inch of our lives and it’s products are fundamental for the progress of humanity. Though engineering is fascinating to me, I believe that the most exciting outcomes are bourne from its intersections with seemingly unrelated fields.
PFS is usually updated once a week (posts in standard form, “thoughts” posts do not have a schedule), interchanging between the three writers each time.
Update – January 2018
We apologize that we have been unable to publish frequently (stick with the above schedule) over the past few weeks. This is again due to the high demand for Advanced Highers and other crucial deadlines that are quickly approaching. We hope to better the situation in the coming weeks. In the meantime – if not already – do check out our other posts!
We love sharing our thoughts with this community.
P.S We are not experts or professionals in the STEM fields. We are doing this purely because we love science and want to encourage scientific discussion so we do not recommend using our posts for anything such as research.
