Pi(e) Day

When: March 14, 2015 12:00 pm

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. The Maryland Science Center is ready to celebrate everything Pi, from eating pie to reciting Pi, to exploring different ways to draw a circle. Dangerously Delicious Pies has donated pies for the party, but save a little room for the pie eating contest!
