Welcome to STEMology – Show Notes
Season 1, Episode 24
Dragons IRL, Pi, Dreaming Retinas & Angry bees
In today’s episode of STEMology…
Sophie & Dave are discussing about dragons that are found to be living in Queensland many years ago, the new world record of decimal places in π, how mammals’ brains are primed to function before they’re even born and higher protein found in the venom of angry bees…..
This particular new pterosaur had the wingspan of about seven meters. I will add that that’s an estimate because they obviously only had the skull
So the exact number of digits that pie has been calculated to is 62, 831, 853,071,750 digits.
What they notice is that almost as soon as these animals can open their eyes, they’re able to navigate world. So because the visual system needs so much training in order to work, like so much of the rebrain needs so much training, you need to like have these networks primed to do what their function is.

So the idea is that the more proteins found in the venom, the higher potential quality and effect of the venom …. It was the angry bees that reacted intensively to stimulating devices who produced a richer and more protein, dense bee venom.
This is a “kind of, sort of, vaguely close” copy of the words that David & Sophie speak in this episode.
