Happy Ï€Â Day!!! Â I love Ï€ Day because it’s a chance to celebrate math and all of the amazing things that come from it. Like engineering. Â And I try to inspire young engineers every day at Left Brain Craft Brain. Â One craft at a time :) Here are some fun things you can do to celebrate!

#### What is Pi?

Pi is a numerical constant, the ratio of a circle’s circumference to it’s diameter. Â And it’s equal to 3.14159. Approximately. Â Because Pi is an irrational number that can never be written in it’s entirety.

#### Celebrate the PiÂ Day of the Century

2015 is a very special year for Ï€. Â Because we have the date 3/14/15 and at 9:26:53 you can celebrate a few more digits.

#### PiÂ Activities for Kids

Here’s a few fun things to do today to celebrate…
