Pi (π) Day

Pi (π) Day is a much celebrated day that pays tribute to the mathematical constant, Pi (or π), the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It is celebrated on Mar 14 (or 3/14) because Pi is approximately 3.141592. Mar 14 happens to be the birthday of renowned scientist Albert Einstein too.

Come join us at Science Centre Singapore in our double celebration of the “irrational number” and Albert Einstein’s birthday, and look out for the various Pi (π) Day activities in the galleries!
