Padre Ventura celebrated Pi Day with a feast of things round – like pies. Thanks to Jess Estrada for the great idea! She even came in to celebrate it with us, pizzas in hand, even though she is only a week away from giving birth.
According to Google: Pi, denoted by the Greek letter “π”, has been part of human knowledge for millennia, but it wasn’t until 1988 that physicist Larry Shaw organized what is now recognized as the first “Pi Day” celebration at the San Francisco Exploratorium science museum. Shaw chose March 14, or 3.14 — the first three digits of pi — as Pi Day. Shaw died last year, but Pi Day is still celebrated by lovers of mathematics around the world.
