Whether you're a math geek or just want an excuse to eat pie all day (that's really what we're celebrating, right?), you'll want to revel in this "holiday." This Friday, March 14 (that would be "3.14"), take advantage of a day dedicated to baking pies and watching Darren Aronofsky's movie "Pi." Are you could also visit Pi3 Day at the Rochester Museum & Science Center (657 East Ave.). The whole family can enjoy such Pi-related activities as learning cool math tricks, discovering some of the secrets behind being a wiz at math, putting their brains to the test with amusing mind games, and baking with mathematics.

Pi3 Day takes place Friday-Sunday, March 14-16, from 3:14 p.m. to 6:28 p.m. on Friday and noon-4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. While at the museum, make sure to check out "Math Midway," a carnival-themed and hands-on exhibition that will spark curiosity and reveal mathematical wonders. The exhibition will run through Monday, March 17, during normal museum times. Both Pi3 Day and Math Midway are free with regular museum admission ($11-$13), and free for children under 3 and museum members. For more information, visit rmsc.org.
