Welcome to the 31st annual π Day, the mathematical holiday founded at the Exploratorium and celebrated by number lovers around the world! To honor the never-ending number 3.14159… (and Einstein’s birthday), we’ll serve up π-themed activities, rituals, antics, and plenty of pie. Find out what's so special about this famous mathematical constant, and take your (decimal) place in our annual march to the π Shrine!
