March 14 or 3/14 is Pi Day, named after the famous number approximated as 3.14. This Pi Day, learn how astronomers and space scientists use this special number to learn about the universe and travel through our solar system. This short talk will be followed by a visit to the UofT Observatory, where we will take you on a tour of our many telescopes, and, weather permitting, we will view the sun with the aid of a solar filter.

Open to U of T students, staff, and faculty with children in grade 2 and up. Accompanied with one adult only please.

Register early, spaces limited! Email family.care@utoronto.ca and include your name, U of T status and grades of your participating children.

Event collaboration by the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics and the Family Care Office.
