This Week in STEM: History Mysteries and Tentacled Moths

This Week in STEM: History Mysteries and Tentacled Moths

At Concept Schools, we get a little bit excited about all things related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We always keep an eye out on what’s going on in STEM in the news. Each week we will share what we think is awesome and worth learning about.

There are many more amazing things going on in STEM than we have shared, so leave a comment with your favorite STEM news from this week.

Nature is Beautiful (but also terrifying)

Some brave soul decided to film a short video of a Creatonotos gangis moth.

The diversity of nature is fascinating, but we’re perfectly fine enjoying this creature from behind the safety of the internet.
