Illinois group celebrates math with ‘Pi Day’

ILLINOIS (RFD) — The Illinois Science Council believes the importance of mathematics should be recognized at least once a year. That’s why the group celebrates ‘Pi Day’ – that’s P-I-Day, today on 3/14.

Science Council Executive Director Monica Metzler says the group will hold four, Pi-Day, Pi-K’s, or 3.14 mile early evening fun-runs and walks in Chicago, Oak Park and Deerfield.

Metzler says her group tries to make math, science, technology and engineering a life-long learning experience by making it fun.

The I-S-C has attracted adult members by holding other events such as the science of beer, science of coffee and science of the cocktail. Meztler says they bring in a real scientist to conduct experiments on each subject at hand with participants. The group also holds its annual Illinois Science Festival at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart in May.
