A Week of Pi, Day 2: Pi Contests
Yesterday, We covered What Is Pi? Now to do something with it.
- Not only is March 14th Pi Day, it's also Albert Einstein's birthday. With that in mind, Princeton Tour Company sponsors a Pi Day Video Contest. "Content must include celebration of Pi & Einstein’s Birthday and run LESS than 3.14 minutes." If you're interested, give it a shot.
- Serious Eats has a Pi Day Pie Contest. For this contest, "Share your best pie recipes and photos…" Last year's winner was called The Apple Pi, which had its crust and apple filling made from cut-out numbers.
- If you aren't into either of these contests, you can make up your own. Many schools will have contests on Pi Day to see how many digits of pi students can remember. You could have a contest within your school, class, or even your family. For your reference, here are One Million Digits of Pi.
More Pi Day activities are coming in tomorrow's post.
