A Graduation Stole Uniquely Designed for Physics
Day, Lawrence H.
Physics Teacher, v47 n5 p284-285 May 2009
In response to student requests, and to help celebrate the graduation of our physics majors, we have designed a graduation stole uniquely befitting physics. The design incorporates the four visible spectral lines of hydrogen--the Balmer series. Since the 2002 debut of the design, all our graduates have proudly worn their physics graduation stoles at commencement. We hope the idea of a unique physics graduation stole, and the specific design of this particular one, will help spread the celebration of physics to other institutions as well.
