Circles, circles, and more circles. Chalk art circles, bubbles, round foods, circle themed lawn games, recycled bottle top art, and of course, activities related to Pi. Not the delicious pie that you eat, but Pi (π), the sixteenth letter of the Greek alphabet, and the irrational number representing the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. For any circle, the distance around the edge is a little more than three times the distance across.

For the third year in a row, CCM is hosting Pi Day: A Celebration of Circles, at Tanks Arts Centre (because they are round!). Join us on on Sunday, March 12th, 2023 (3.14 in the month/day format) for a morning of fun, hands-on circle themed activities. The goal is for people to learn about Pi (π) in a hands-on, interactive way, and show children (and adults) that there is math all around us, and that learning about it can and should be fun! 

There are activities for those young and old. Pi Activity Packs were created for primary school students; the Tot Spot, bubbles, and chalk were a huge hit with the littlies (it’s never too early to start exploring!); and parents and children are invited to calculate the circumference of Tank 3 using hula hoops and measuring tapes. 

Come explore the wonders of bubbles with Bugzy Bumbleebee, and get your Pi Day photo taken by Simon from Green and Glamour photo booths!
