Pi Day celebration serves up Pie and Math

MARINA, Calif. — Pi Day, March 14, is a great time to celebrate math and science! Join us at the annual celebration of the mathematical constant π. Pi Day is observed on March 14 since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π.

This event co-hosted by Monterey County Skeptics and Humanist Association of the Monterey Bay Area will feature not only math, but pie. There will be a short presentation on the power of pi to enjoy while having a slice of pie. It’s also an opportunity to connect with others in the community who appreciate science and critical thinking.

The event is from 6-8:30 p.m. at Marina Library’s Community Room, 190 Seaside Circle, Marina. It is free and open to the public.

Skepticism is a worldwide movement that promotes critical thinking and evaluation of pseudoscience and paranormal claims based on scientific evidence rather than faith. Celebrities such as James Randi, Richard Dawkins, and Penn & Teller work to promote skeptical thinking; on the grassroots level, local skeptics groups come together for the same purpose.

The Monterey County Skeptics meet monthly to discuss, debate and delve into these matters: www.meetup.com/monterey-county-skeptics.

The Humanist Association meets monthly as well to discuss humanism, a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
