Environmental Science – Renewable Energy

Hey everyone this is going to a be simple talk on renewable resources! Renewable resources can be replenished by the earth, and some are perpetual meaning they are never ending and we do not need to wait for them to be replenished. This is a continuation of our energy talks in environmental science. Lets get [...]

Introduction to Animal Diversity – (Part One)

This is a introduction to Animal diversity! Animals are super diverse, and even though this is an introduction, it is going to be a long post. So grab a cup of tea, sit back, and enjoy the read! This is part one and there will be a second part posted later. The first animal fossils [...]

Environmental Science – Non Renewable Energy Sources

Hey everyone! This post is about the four main types of non renewable energy sources! Let's begin with oil. Oil is created when microorganisms die and settle in the bottom of the oceans. They form a hydrocarbon mixture, and this is made up of the microorganisms, sediment, and runoff. Most of the world's oil reserves [...]

Environmental Science – Energy Use

Hey everybody this talk is about energy use. Everything requires energy, and energy exists in multiple forms (read last post). There are two categories of energy: renewable and non-renewable. Renewable energy are replenished by the Earth, and we will not run out of this energy. Examples include biomass. Perpetual energy is a form of renewable [...]

Environmental Science – Basics of Energy

Hey everyone, this talk will be focused on the basics of energy. Energy is the ability that something has to do work. Energy is used all around us and by us. There are several forms of energy: Potential energy is stored energy that is positional. Examples include: Gravitational Energy: the energy of a placeChemical Energy: [...]

Environmental Science – Species Roles and Interactions

Hey everyone, welcome back to our environmental science series and let's get straight into our topic on species roles and interactions. A species is a group of individual organisms that share common characteristics and genes that can reproduce with one another and produce viable offspring. Examples include humans, the Bengal tiger, African lion, etc. Generalist [...]

Environmental Science – Biogeochemical cycles

Welcome back to our environmental science series! Today we will be talking about biogeochemical cycles, the biological, chemical, and geological ways chemicals move through our planet's systems and is reused/recycled. This talk is going to be more visual than textual. Understanding these cycles is important because it shows us how vital chemicals are recycled and [...]

Environmental Science – Plate Tectonics

Welcome back to our Environmental Science series. On this talk, we will focus on our planet's plate tectonics. This incorporates our plate boundaries, the structure of our Earth, and a little bit of history. Let's get right to it! First of all, our Earth is made up of three main components: crust, mantle, and the [...]

The Tree of Life

Welcome to the next StemTalk! This is going to be about the tree of life. This talk is going to go over the history of Earth's formation in a very brief manner. Earth formed around 4.6 billion years ago, condensing from a large cloud of dust and space rock to form the first structure. Condensation [...]

Environmental Science – Impact and Worldviews

Hey everybody! Welcome back to our third talk on environmental science. We will be talking about our environmental impact and multiple worldviews that people have on our planet. Environmental impact is the impact that humans have on the environment. Whatever impact we have on this planet, good or bad, is our impact. To measure the [...]
