POCATELLO – The Idaho State University Physics Program will host Pi Day Physics at Pine Ridge Mall in Chubbuck on Wednesday, March 14, from 5 to 7 p.m. for interactive science challenges and demonstrations and a chance for participants to eat a free slice of pie.

Kids ages 5-16 will be awarded a slice of pie, donated by Albertsons and Fred Meyer, if they can successfully complete a science challenge. There will be different science challenges for different age groups.

March 14 is Albert Einstein’s Birthday and Pi-Day. In honor of this day, there will be physics demonstrations and challenging activities for all ages, some of which will feature bowling balls, vortex cannons, levitation, and more.
