The first calculation of π was done by Archimedes of Syracuse, one of the greatest mathematicians. Crazy enough, Pi Day was founded at the same place as MEandMine, San Francisco! In 1988, a physicist, Larry Shaw, came up with the idea of turning March 14th, into Pi Day, echoing the first three digits of pi, 3.14.

Happy National Pi Day! Every year, on March 14th, everyone celebrates what we now know as Pi Day. What even is "Pi Day"? Well, besides all the discounts from pizzas and pie shops, Pi Day is so much more! It's a day where we celebrate science and math by commemorating the Pi sign, π. A physicist, Larry Shaw, came up with this idea of turning March 14th, which when we write out the date numerically is 3/14, into Pi Day, echoing the first three digits of pi, 3.14. Crazy enough, Pi Day was founded at the same place as MEandMine, San Francisco! In 1988, Larry, the long-time employee of the San Francisco's Exploratorium Museum, a place that encouraged visitors to engage in hands-on learning about science and technology, led the world to celebrate its first Pi Day. His idea stemmed from his passion for science and math. According to his daughter, Sara Shaw, "He always sort of liked to combine crazy, fun ideas with science and math. It's a celebration and a coming together of everybody to enjoy something that is based on science but in a fun, educational way. It's both fun and science, and those things are not mutually exclusive." Here at MEandMine, we also believe that learning and fun are not mutually exclusive! We strive to create a world where our kiddos are empowered to pursue their love for learning and exploring. Through our award-winning hands-on STEAM boxes, we, as a team of educators, pediatricians, family science experts, psychologists, toy geeks, and parents, are obsessed with creating family bonding experiences where the lines between fun and learning are blurred. We strive to help our little ones develop resilience, empowering them to have fun challenges to allow them to gain problem-solving skills by engaging in stimulating hands-on STEAM learning.
