On Thursday, March 14th, SFT celebrated its second annual Pi Day. Students immersed themselves in this mathematical constant through a series of special classes and activities. Students learned about Pi, approximated Pi (student average: 3.128288!), and wrote Pi-ems (Pi poems). Additionally, students honored the Pi Day birthdays of Akira Yoshizawa by making origami, and of Albert Einstein by watching a film and playing trivia.
SFT’s Pi Day celebration concluded with a Pi party in which students and faculty indulged in a variety of pies, followed by the traditional pi-ing in the face of three faculty members. This year, faculty members Evan, Aaron and Alycia received whipped cream pies in the face delivered by students Mike, Malik and William. The three faculty members were chosen by the amount of money placed in their personal donation cups over the weeks leading up to Pi Day; the total amount collected will be donated by SFT to the Mackenzie McCarter Beneficiary Fund. The three students earned their pie-throwing privilege via the Pi/Einstein trivia activity in which all students participated.
