Pi Day (Tue/14)
Meeting of the Minds
If you're not a serious mathematics nerd, you may be unaware of the 
significance of March 14 at precisely 1:59 p.m. Does the word pi ring a 
bell? The Exploratorium is quite fond of this little number that you may 
remember from your school days, and is therefore celebrating 
3.1415926535.ad infinitum at the appropriate date and time. (Just as a 
reminder, pi is the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a 
circle.) The museum turns this underappreciated number into a day of fun 
and frivolity, with events including performing pi-related rites, eating 
pizza pie, singing songs about pi, beading a pi string and a lesson in 
pizza tossing. And just to make things even more exciting, Albert 
Einstein's birthday (March 14, 1879) will be recognized as well. Put 
your thinking cap on, and join in the geometrical celebration. -- Lisa
