Calling all fans of math and even those who find math scary. Join the Elmbrook Education Foundation at Discovery World on Sunday, March 14 (3.14) for Pi Day. People coming to Discovery World on March 14th will find a wide array of activities to challenge their math skills and to find out that math really can be fun.
Some of the activities include a Pi Recitation Contest. Contestants can recite the Pi formula and vie for prizes. Prizes will be awarded to those who can recite the longest Pi formula. Winners will be selected every hour and there will be one grand prize winner selected from the hourly winners.
Don’t want to recite the Pi formula? No problem. Visitors can also make a Pi bracelet or key chain. They can get a Pi tattoo at no charge and participate in other Pi activities.
And, after all that, what better way to celebrate Pi Day than with a slice of apple pie and a cup of coffee on Discovery World’s promenade? Members of the Brookfield Central High School Key Club will be on hand to serve the pie and all proceeds will benefit the Elmbrook Education Foundation. Pies provided through the generosity of Waterstone Bank. Buy a raffle ticket for $1 to enter to win a family membership to Discovery World!
