## NASA’s Pi in the Sky Challenge

On March 14, NASA will join schools, students and science centers across the U.S. as they celebrate one of the most well known and beloved numbers: pi.

Pi can be and often is rounded to 3.14 (even though its decimals never end), which is why 3/14 has been designated National Pi Day. Educators and students can participate in honoring this mathematical marvel by taking part in the 2019 NASA Pi Day Challenge, an illustrated math problem set that gets students solving the same problems scientists and engineers do to explore space. Answers to the 2019 challenge will be revealed on March 15. Explore even more pi-related resources for educators and students below!
