Tuesday is Pi Day (3.14) in American format. I received this email from Solar System Ambassadors Headquarters about educators, students and everyone else having fun with our favorite Greek letter:

You can find all the graphics and promos in my exchange (kmorr/*PI DAY 2017) should you need them. They also include some incredible gifs made by Scott Hulme (check out the Mars crater one!).
