Happy Happy Pi Day – Happy Happy Pi Day
Another successful HOK Structure’s Pi day has come and nearly gone as I write this. As always it was an enjoyable event for all; we brought pie, we ate pie, we recited pi. This was the St. Louis Structural Engineering group’s sixth annual event to celebrate the mathematical constant pi, an irrational and transcendental number represented by the Greek letter “π”.
To celebrate, we hosted an event inviting colleagues in our office to bring in a pie and participate in a “Best In Show” pie contest (and of course to eat pie) in addition to hosting the “most recited digits of pi” contest. Winners were awarded with $30 gift cards to Pi Pizzeria!
Without further ado (because most of you want to skip the math lecture and find out who won the contests)…
Best In Show Pie: Michael Vande Velde’s Homemade Cherry Pie (see below)
Most Recited Digits of Pi: Nag Nagulapati with 51 digits including the first 3
An additional thanks goes to Cheryl Steffe, Michael Vande Velde, Justin Thomas, Paul Wilhelms, Mike Hyland, Steven Crang, Kirsten Marklin, and Nag Nagulapati.
