Pi Day and Family STEM Night

Today is Pi Day!  3.14!  The Greenwood Fred Meyer donated the pie for our students to enjoy in class this year! Sixth grade students measured the diameter and the circumference of their plates and divided to see how close they could come to calculating pi.

Mark your calendars for March 28, when St. John School will host its First Annual Family STEM Night, STEM in the Great Outdoors. Families will work together to solve great STEM challenges such as building a family shelter, cleaning up after an oil spill, and creating an escape pod for climbers. The event will be held in Egan Hall from 5:30-7:30pm.

Are you a Scientist, Techie, Engineer, or Mathematician? Do you make models and solve problems? Are you available March 28? We would love to have speakers come to classrooms to talk about their STEM vocation during the day, so that students can see all of the awesome STEM careers out there for their future! If you are interested in speaking and inspiring students, please register or contact Ms. Gudaitis, Math Specialist and Notre Dame Fellow.
