Children took to the street to duke it out in a fun, messy Pi-induced frenzy celebrating the infinite, non-repeating number 3.14... on Pi Day, March 14.
More than 100 participants tossed right into the shaving cream craze as part of the Children's Museum of Houston ninth annual Pi Day and fourth Pi(e) fight. The Pi-maniacs were prepared with protective plastic covers, goggles and even shower caps on Ewing Street when the whistle blew promptly at 1:59 p.m., the numbers that follow 3.14.
Albert Einstein was on hand at the sticky scene as festivities at the museum observed throughout the afternoon all things Pi...and Einstein's birthday. Special events included designing circle collages, making portable pudding pies and spotlight performances by Urgeworks dancers.
