Pi Day

Pi Day at the Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County!
Saturday, March 8 from 2-4 pm!
Admission is free
Celebrate Pi (3.1415) Day with us as Wabash College professors and students entertain and amaze museum visitors. Witness and explore physics firsthand. Bring the whole family! And of course we will have a little pie!

Wabash College Physics professor Martin Madsen, "Pi Day this year will include an exploration of video game physics.  Imagine what would happen if some of your favorite games came to life!  How hard would it be to really shoot an "Angry Bird" at fortified pigs?  How hard is it to shoot a laser beam at a moving target?  Imagine playing "Fruit Ninja" with real moving objects.  We will also activities looking at the physics of human-computer interactions including new and interesting ways to play games."

Admission to the museum is free and the museum is wheelchair and stroller accessible.
