All are welcome! Due to the ongoing pandemic, the event will be hosted virtually. In typical years, participants have been provided with Pi Day T-shirts, pizza and dessert. To replicate this aspect in a virtual setting, participants are encouraged to wear their own Pi-inspired attire and to bring their own pizza, pie or other foods. A few group photos will be taken. (That said, please note that fancy Pi dress and food are not required. Similarly, turning on your camera for the group photo is completely optional.)
