klein bottle opener

SMCM Mathematics Klein Bottle Openers!

Every math major at SMCM earns herself one of these during the annual spring Awards Ceremony. What exactly is a Klein Bottle? It's the non-orientable surface with no "inside" or "outside" pictured on the opener. When trying to figure out the graphic, it helps to know that it says "SMCM Mathematics". Wikipedia has a good entry with more info on Klein Bottles.

Here's Sandy at the very first ceremony explaining to students what a Klein Bottle is:
