Celebrating International Pi Day (Saturday, March 14th)  News  admin  18-Mar-2015  0  917 reads


Last Saturday, March 14th, was a very special day, as it was most accurate Pi Day of the entire 21st century. 

Pi Day is celebrated every March 14 in honor of the mathematical constant pi. The symbol used by mathematicians to represent the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter is the lowercase Greek letter π, sometimes spelled out as pi. In English, π is pronounced as "pie"  

This year, the calendar date aligned with two additional digits of pi, 3.1415, which won't happen again until March 14, 2115.

And by taking additional five digts of Pi, 3.141592653at 9:26:53 AM the world was celebrating the "Pi of the Century".   

Thanks to the wonderful support from the Cincinnati Museum Center, and especially Terry Dickey and Regina Hall, we were able to offer to students of Cincinnati schools for free a very special program at the Cincinnati Museum Center that included fun activities in a STEM Lab, tour of the Museum of Natural History and Science, and OMNIMAX movie. As an extra souvenir each student received a T-Shirt and a gift back. 

Big Thanks to our wonderful sponsors:

- Cincinnati Museum Center
- SHPE Foundation
- GE Aviation
- Duke Energy
- Luxottica
- World Financial Group, Inc.
- RRight Now Communications, LLC and Regina Carswell Russo
