Celebrate Pi Day with the Library!
A mathematical and gourmet constant at the Cal Poly Humboldt Library is celebrating Pi Day with local pies and engaging conversations. Please join us for an opportunity to celebrate the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.
Let us know or share your recommended inspiring or fun book or movie on the topic of mathematics like those mentioned below. We will also have trivia and brief presentations about the 3D Digital Herbarium project and the Humboldt GIS Data Archive project.
We hope to see you in the Humboldt Scholar Lab, 3rd floor, on March 14 at 1:59pm to celebrate Pi Day by eating delicious pie!
In the meantime, please enjoy these recommendations:
