It’s that time of year again! Pi Day and Einstein’s Birthday (source)! Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159 (source).

All around the world, this day is celebrated in many different ways. You can celebrate Pi Day:

- The NASA way by solving stellar math problems faced by NASA scientists and engineers;

- the Exploratorium way by participating in Pi Day Activities or joining their Community Pi Day;

- The Bricks & Minifigs Eugene – LEGO® Resale Store way by joining them for Legos, movies, and pie in Eugene, Oregon; or
