MSSM Student recites PI to how many digits?
The Maine School of Science and Mathematics (MSSM) has a long-standing tradition of celebrating Pi Day on March 14th, where students gather to recite as many digits of the mathematical constant pi as they can remember. This year, the competition was fierce, with students from across the state of Maine competing for the coveted title of Pi Day champion.
The winner of this year's competition was Ari Anghel from Windham Maine, who wowed the crowd by reciting an impressive 500 digits of pi. As the champion, the reward is a trip to a local restaurant, to celebrate the victory with a friend.
But the Pi Day competition is not just about bragging rights and prizes. It is also a fundraiser for the MSSM Foundation, which supports the school's mission of providing a world-class education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to talented students from across Maine.
This year, members of the community were encouraged to pledge donations per digit recited, with all proceeds going towards the MSSM Foundation. The event was a great success, raising both funds and awareness for the school's mission.
Overall, the Pi Day celebration at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics is a fun and engaging way to celebrate the wonders of mathematics and support the education of Maine's brightest young minds. Congratulations to all the participants, and especially to Ari Anghel for his impressive victory!
