Pi Day at Maui’s Makerspace

Pi day at the Makerspace was great fun.


Good turnout and some new faces.


Jonelle Davis’s homemade raspberry pi took the prize.


We calculated pi empirically using nails (see photo). Good example of how sample size affects the results. We started out at 3.67, 2.83 and ended the day at 3.2.


Many Raspberry Pi demos (courtesy of Bob Conlon), with both the old and new version. I must say, the Raspberry Pi 2 is an impressive machine. Anyone want to lead an interest group?

The kids went home with raspberry pi stickers and 3d printed bracelets.
