Middle schoolers to celebrate Pi Day

BY THE TRI-CITY HERALDMarch 12, 2013 

Students from Pasco, Sunnyside and Granger middle schools will converge on Washington State University Tri-Cities Thursday to celebrate Pi Day.

The day is meant to promote math through the numeric value of pi, which is approximately 3.14, but also celebrates Albert Einstein's birthday.

The celebrations at WSU Tri-Cities is specifically for students in the Math, Engineering and Science Achievement, or MESA, program, which provides outreach to groups not typically represented in science and math careers.

The day will include a presentation from an Albert Einstein look-alike, math competitions, workshops and a pi(e) eating contest.
