Second Annual Pi-e Day, Celebrating Pie and Math, Set For March 11th in the Liberty Science Center

For the second year in a row, Pi-E Day organizers Gabby Creery – self-described non-baker and “mathphobe” – and Lissa Welles – pie-baker and math enthusiast – will be celebrating their love of pie and education. This year, the event will be held at the Liberty Science Center in conjunction with the center’s “Year of Math” celebration on March 11th.

The festivities will include a pie baking contest (there’s still time to enter), pie eating contest, pie for sale at the pie café, Pi-ku (think Haiku with a twist), a pie walk, math inspired arts and crafts, pie-in-the-face, face painting and more.

A limited number of discounted tickets (just $10) are available through the Learning Community Charter School (201-332-0900). You can also bring a store bought 8” pie for the Community Food Bank of NJ and receive $5 off your Liberty Science Center admission that day.

Pie bakers: there are seven categories for the blue ribbon contest.

These include professional fruit, professional non-fruit, apple, nut/cream/custer, other fruit, pumpkin/sweet potato, savory, and one more TBD.

Proceeds to benefit the Learning Community Charter School.
