Building on the success of the inaugural Pi Day- A Celebration of Circles last year, Cairns Children’s
Museum is back at Tanks Arts Centre for a morning of hands-on, interactive play all around the theme
of circles and all things round!
There is maths all around us, and Pi Day is a great way to show kids learning about maths IS FUN!
All aspects of the morning have a circle theme and a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering,
Arts, Mathematics) focus. Activities are geared for children under 12.
Pi (π) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. For any circle, the distance around the
edge is a little more than three times the distance across. Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3/14 in the
month/day format) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π. It also happens to be
