The Idaho State University Department of Physics and the ISU Society of Physics Students invites the public to join them at the Pine Ridge Mall on Pi-Day, Friday, March 14, to celebrate Einstein’s birthday from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. There will be physics demonstrations and hands-on science exhibits featuring a Van DeGraff electrostatic generator, an electromagnetic rail gun and liquid nitrogen.

There will be free Hostess pies for kids, and real ice cream made in minutes with the help of liquid nitrogen.

Come and enjoy science fun for the whole family.

March 14 is pi day because p=3.14 and March 14 is 3/14…get it?
