Happy Pi Day! Why Not Enjoy Sweet Pie Crepes?

 Today marks an important mathematical constant (3.14) that is represented with the Greek letter π.

Although the United States House of Representative officially recognized this date as National Pi Day in 2009, this holiday was invented well before then.

In 1988, physicist Larry Shaw held a party at the San Francisco Exploratorium that celebrated this mathematical constant by having willing participants walk around the building's circular areas and eat real pies.

Today, Pi Day activities such as pie throwing contests, and learning more about Pi's history in engineering are held in classrooms across the nation. Coincidentally, today is also Albert Einstein's birthday too!
