In honor of Pi Day, I made a giant Rice Krispie Treat Pi:
People make all kinds of pies, and people make all kinds of cakes, but I decided to branch out. (I could only find one other Rice Krispie Treat Pi on the Internet, created in 2011 by the precocious Jacob Smith of Sarasota, Florida’s Goldie Feldman Academy.)
And to continue the celebration, I’m offering a Pi wall clock (pictured below) to the commenter with the most creative idea for celebrating Pi Day. Bonus points if you are carrying out that idea, or have done so in the past.
Important disclosure: My mother was a mathematics teacher until her retirement, and she has had a heavy influence on my sense of humor. Therefore, I will likely have a soft spot for submissions from educators, or with an educational component.
The contest begins now and ends at 1:59 p.m. Pacific time on Thursday, March 15 (one full day after 3.14 1:59). In the spirit of fair play, UCS employees and their families should resist entering. My decision is final.
The clock is 7 inches in diameter and nearly 22 inches in circumference (and approximately 38.5 square inches in area). Regrettably, I can only ship the clock domestically. You can still enter if you live elsewhere, but you’ll have to choose a friend within the United States to receive it. Or you can have it sent to my mom. I know she’d like it.
UPDATE: We have a winner.
