In a nutshell, Pi Day was a group of Compass students preparing some fun math- and science-flavored hands-on activities to present to a group of high school students. We brought materials to build nifty gliders that look like they shouldn’t be able to fly but do, a worksheet filled with some unusual math problems that require a certain amount of creativity, and awesome demonstrations of spherical and hyperbolic spaces.
