Why do We Sweat?

Today’s post is a bit different. I’m a big believer that science should be communicated visually – so I recruited help from my friend, Aaralyn Lim. She is studying Commerce at UniMelb and also has a passion for communicating science. Difference is, she can illustrate much better than I can. So why not work together?

The amazing runner photo on slide 1 was drawn by Ryan Inzana at GQ.com. Everything else was illustrated by Aaralyn.
BBC’s GCSE Bitesize was my lifesaver when I was studying in high school. They have an excellent piece on temperature control and what happens to our body.

One of the aim of my blogs is to inspire curiosity. We are all naturally curious – in fact all of these posts are questions that my friends have asked to explain. This post is for Shi Xian, who wondered why she was sweating after running to catch the tram. If you have any questions, comment below!

Hey! I’m a 3rd year Biomed at Uni. I’m tired of studying. I just want to create. Learn more at about.me/jtyeung

  4. Thank you. That was the dilemma I was going through – visuals or words? I will try to make 2 versions of it next time!

  5. It’s all Aaralyn! Would not have done this without her generous help!

    This is a very effective way of communicating your topic. The pictures are engaging and look, great props to your friend. Just think there could be a little bit more information for us readers to sink our teeth into. But well done 🙂
