What’s Pi Day?

Today is Pi Day, I recently learned. It’s named for the Pi you learned in math class. The value of Pi is a constant 3.14, and today is March 14 (3/14). Seems kind of nerdy, right? It is a little bit of a geeky observance, with activities usually organized by science museums or math teachers. But you can have a lot of fun with it, incorporating pizza and pie into the otherwise educational celebration.

I blogged about how to celebrate Pi Day in Pensacola in my latest blog post for Visit Pensacola. It covers places to go like the Pensacola MESS Hall, which is helping to organize the first ever Gulf Coast Science Festival this week, as well as some yummy eats to try around town. This was a fun one. Hope you enjoy Pi Day, wherever you are today!


The Pensacola MESS Hall features exhibits and “mess kits” for individual exploration of math, engineering, science and stuff (MESS).
