Clatsop Community College will celebrate notable physicist Albert Einstein’s birthday and the mystery of the mathematical constant Pi (π) on Friday, March 14, 2014 in the CCC Patriot Hall Gym, 1650 Lexington Avenue, Astoria, from 1:59 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Pi is everywhere around us; it is the ratio of any circle’s circumference to the length of its diameter. The celebration mimics the first eight digits of Pi, which are 3.1415926. Thus, Pi Day is on Friday, March 14 (3.14), begins at 1:59 p.m. (159) and goes to (2) 6 p.m. (6).
CCC’s regionally acclaimed band, The π‘d π‘pers, will open the festivities at 1:59 p.m. with music and singing. There will be math games, Pi and other math walks, face painting, Pi prizes and more. Pi’s famous relative—Pie—will be sold by the Pi-Phi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (by the slice or whole pie).
Please join us as we celebrate the mysteries of Pi. Admission is free! This event is appetizing for all ages and families are encouraged to attend (children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult).
