Happy Pi Day! GreenVest celebrated yet another Pi Day and was thrilled to be able to do so safely and in person after celebrating at home in 2021. Celebrating Pi Day means coming together, reciting the digits of pi, and paying special attention to the circles we overlook every day. At GreenVest, we enjoyed pizza pie for lunch, followed by decadent dessert pies. It was a wonderful way to catch up with colleagues who have been working remotely and in the field while enjoying some circular confections.
On March 14, 1988, Larry Shaw, a physicist at the San Francisco Exploratorium, coordinated a circular march and pie eating extravaganza. Chosen for its resemblance to the first three digits of pi, 3/14 has since become international Pi Day, and a reason for math and sweets themed parties around the world. Pi (3.1415926…) is the mathematical constant of a circle’s circumference divided by its diameter, which is essential to many formulas in mathematics and physics. Here at GreenVest, we use it often – for example, to get the diameter of a tree or pipe by measuring its circumference.
A big thank you to Laura Kelm, one of our Project Managers, for coordinating this fun and delicious celebration. We are counting down the days until March 14, 2023 for more pi(e)!
