Pi Day Offers Family Fun Event at CCC

Clatsop Community College (CCC) invites the community to a free family event at CCC’s Lexington Ave. Campus (Patriot Hall Gym) from 1:59 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 17. CCC is celebrating notable physicist Albert Einstein’s birthday and the mathematical constant Pi (π).

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 need to be accompanied by an adult).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 as a fundraiser (by the slice or whole pie).

Pi is everywhere around us; it is the ratio of any circle’s circumference to the length of its diameter. While the actual Pi Day is March 14th, which mimics the first 3 digits of Pi (3.14), CCC’s celebration will be on Saturday, March 17th. Holding the event on 3.17 made a number discrepancy in Pi so our math department formulated this mathematical explanation: The first 8 digits of Pi are 3.1415926. Thus, Pi Day is on Saturday, March 17th (3.14+ 0.03), begins at 1:59 p.m. (159) and goes to (2) 6 p.m. (6).

For additional information about this fun event or if you have questions about the mysteries of Pi, contact TJ Lackner, CCC Mathematics Instructor, at 503-338-2452 or
