Students try to break world record on Pi Day

VALLEY CENTER, Kansas – Saturday is known as Pi Day, because the date of 3-14-15 is the same as Pi, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.

Believe it or not, that’s got some local students excited!

Valley Center students hope to get in the record books for the longest human representation of Pi! Each student held up a sign with the next number in the series.

Even though Pi never ends, it takes a lot of students to set a world record.

“We have about 1850 students that will be involved in this today,” said Director of Learning, Rebecca Khosravipour. “Today it involves our, all of our high school high school students, all of our middle school students and all of our intermediate schools, so 5th through high school.”

Saturday’s Pi Day only comes around once a century.

How long would a string of Pi with 1850 people be?
