Happy Pi Day!

Mar 14, 2022 | Hot Topics

Today is 3.14, also known by nerds everywhere as Pi Day. This is a (totally made up) day on which we celebrate math, mathematicians, scientists, engineers, designers, analysts, and all who spend their lives working to understand the reality that surrounds us.

It’s also a day to tell a kid how important math and science are, to help grow our world in ways we can’t even imagine today. PiDay.org has a bunch of ways to celebrate, the top of the list being … to eat pie.

Of course, if you’re so inclined, you could recite Pi to 100 digits, as many of my friends can do: 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841971693993751058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679. I’ve never been able to do this, but it is very important to some people so listen politely while they drone on — it’s only one day.

However you celebrate, enjoy!
