What happens when a lizard slips just before leaping into the air? Does the tail go up or down? And what on earth does it have to do with emergency first responders and retaining students in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields?
The answers start with a study by scientists at the University of California Berkeley.
We often mention, on this blog, the growing concern in the United States that not enough students are taking on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects in school. Well, it appears GE had a similar problem…in 1953.
