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.

Monthly Overview and Statistics Writer – Mhairi Fraser
Hi, I’m Mhairi and I’m interested in the ways Statistics influences society’s influencers and can shape the future through that. Anyone who’s studied any science could tell you the blatant ways it shapes our physical world, but the way it shapes our social one? That can be just as fascinating.
PFS is usually updated once a week (posts in standard form, “thoughts” posts do not have a schedule), interchanging between the four writers each time.
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.
