*Pi Day* is an annual celebration commemorating the mathematical constant π (pi). Observed on March 14 (or 3/14 in incorrect *month/day*), since 3, 1, 4 are the three most significant digits of π in the decimal form. *Octopi by SnorgTees*

In 2009, the *United States House of Representatives* supported the designation of Pi Day.

This year we are creating another Visualization of Pi in the form of a reflective line graph. The image resembles a soundwave so we will take it to the next level by working with musicians and sound artists to create sonifications of pi as well!
