Celebrate Pi(e) Day at the Science Center

catch of the day fish (2)Everyone ready for the big March holiday coming up? No, we’re not talking about St. Patrick’s Day (though, yes, that’s fun too). We’re talking Pi(e) Day. Beloved by geometry nerds and pastry enthusiasts alike, Pi(e) Day occurs on March 14th each year—that’s 3/14, which is close enough to 3.14, which is the highly abbreviated version of the transcendental number, Pi. Pi is the number that we find anytime we’re trying to figure out the relationship between a circle’s circumference and diameter. And pie is what we get when we try to figure out the perfect relationship between fruit, butter, and flour. We’re just grateful that the Maryland Science Center had the good sense to bring the two together–on March 14th, of course–for some geometric, sugary indulgence.

On 3/14, The Maryland Science Center will be celebrating all things Pi, from eating pie to reciting Pi (how many digits can you remember?), to exploring different ways to draw a circle (these guys know how to party, am I right?). But seriously, Dangerously Delicious Pies has donated pies for the occasion, so you know it’s going to be good. Only problem? You’ll need to save room for the pie eating contest, so don’t fill up too fast. And just how many pies do you think you can eat? Well, take the diameter of your stomach, multiply by…

Pi(e) Day is March 14th. The Maryland Science Center will be celebrating with special events and free pie from 12pm-4pm. For more information, visit www.mdsci.org.
