National Pi Day History

Scientists and math enthusiasts everywhere across the world make this day one of the funnest and quirkiest celebrations ever. Pi Day is not only a national but also an international holiday and was founded in 1988 at the Exploratorium by Larry Shaw.

The Pi number plays an important role in mathematics so it makes total sense we want to celebrate it every year. To better understand why Pi is so important, simply divide any circle’s circumference by its diameter and the answer will always be approximately 3.14 – and that number is Pi.
