Summaries

Summary Sentence: The School of Physics attempts to create the largest spiral wave in the world.

Full Summary: The School of Physics attempts to create the largest spiral wave in the world. All are encouraged to join in on this potentially record-breaking event!

Please join Associate Professor Flavio Fenton, Dr. Ed Greco and the School of Physics on the Tech Green. Together, we will attempt to break the world record for the largest spiral wave ever created and eat a few free Krispy Kremes in the process.

All participants will be listed as coauthors on a forthcoming journal article investigating the nature of spiral waves in large crowds. If we have enough participants this could break an additional world record for most coauthors!

A video of the 2014 attempt is available on YouTube.

This event is open to all students, faculty, and staff.
