AMHERST, Mass. – Gary Gillis of Mount Holyoke College will present “Brace for Impact,” exploring the acrobatics of jumping frogs and how they, like gymnasts, coordinate their muscles to effectively prepare for landings, at a Science Café on Monday, May 6 at 6 p.m. at Esselon Café in Hadley.
Gillis uses biomechanics and neuromuscular analysis to understand how animals are able to control their movements during rapid deceleration.
Light snacks will be provided and drinks will be available for purchase. All Science Café events are free and designed for a public audience.
