If there are two things that should be paired together, it’s Party and Pi(e). March 14th, or 3.14, marks the celebration of the mathematical constant, Pi, which is used to calculate the circumference of a circle.
Slice into some Pi(e) Day activities by taking part in Pie roulette, contributing to our lengthy Pi chain along the main staircase and even showing off your hula hooping skills with local experts from Baltimore Hoop Love—we’ll be celebrating all things round! Plus, gather around as we drop pie tins of different fillings off the roof and see which makes the biggest splat. Dangerously Delicious Pies will be donating pies for the party (a free slice for all attendees!), but save a little room for the pie eating contest.
Pi in the Sky returns to the dome of the Davis Planetarium, displaying an immersive view of the first 10,000 digits of Pi. New this year, Corvus Ensemble will join us for a special musical interpretation of Pi. Corvus Ensemble is a trio of musicians committed to engaging with audiences by presenting diverse music, traditional and contemporary, in the spirit of interdisciplinary discovery. An artistic interpretation of Pi by Cristian Vasile will also be displayed on the dome during Pi in the Sky as well. Pi in the Sky will take place from 11:15-Noon.
Pi(e) Day gets even sweeter because it is also Albert Einstein’s birthday, who would be turning 137 years old. Help us make this a special day by engaging in hair-raising experiments just like he did.
