NASA Pi Day Challenge, Pi in the Sky 5 Promo


Friday, March 6 - Sunday, March 15



Target Audience:

K-12 students and educators, parents, museums, science centers and planetariums


On March 14, NASA will join schools, students and science centers across the U.S. as they celebrate one of the most well known and beloved numbers: pi. Used throughout the STEM world – especially for space exploration! – pi is the number that results from dividing the circumference of any circle by its diameter. Pi can be and often is rounded to 3.14 (even though its decimals never end), which is why 3/14 has been designated National Pi Day.

Educators and students can participate in honoring this mathematical marvel by taking part in the 2020 NASA Pi Day Challenge starting Friday, March 6. The illustrated math problem set gets students solving the same problems scientists and engineers do to explore space. Explore previous challenges and even more pi-related resources for educators and students below!
