## Pie ComputationPublic Calculation of Pi--Come see how dropping sticks on the ground in front of the Science Center can calculate pi. Make fun of us if it doesn't work. All day Monday. | And of course, there will be food. Nearly-entire portions of things, from Pi to Pie and almost-full glasses of Punch and Cookies with Nearly All Their Crumbs Still Attached. | Oh mathematical gluttony! |
