It’s National Pi Day! How can you celebrate it?
A highly recognized mathematical number and a chance to celebrate by eating pie? Sign me up! It’s National Pi Day! Or 3.14 to all you mathematicians! Or to be even MORE accurate: 3.14159265359….etc.
According to Nationaltoday.com, March 14th is the best day to celebrate Pi. The mathematical Pi goes back thousands of years to Archimedes of Syracuse. Archimedes determined the value of Pi during his time.
And much like May the Fourth be with you or Alien day (4/26), Pi also needed a nerdy day to celebrate it. Physicist Larry Shaw visited the San Francisco Museum of Science, the Exploratorium in 1988. While there he decided to help organize a day of fun offering pies and tea on 3.14, the number for Pi. From there the day was repeated and eventually took off!
The day became a national holiday in 2009. It is also Albert Einstein’s birthday! What better way to celebrate one of the greatest scientists and one of the most known numbers!
Here are some great ways to enjoy National Pi Day!
