|Penn Researchers Shed Light on the Roundworm's Curious Swimming Behavior|
|In a study led by Haim Bau, professor in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanic, researchers found that, rather than settling to the bottom of a pool of water as one would expect for an animal heavier than water, nematodes seem to "swim happily" through the liquid. The research was published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface.|

|For This Mechanical Engineer, Curling is Both a Family Tradition and a Physics Lesson|
Cody Clouser, junior in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, continues a legacy of competitive curling that began nearly 60 years ago, with his grandparents being among the founding members of the the Philadelphia Curling Club in Paoli, Pa. Today, he continues his family's legacy on the junior team, consisting of those age 21 and under, and also leads the next generation of athletes as president of the Curling Club at Penn.
