I needed a little boost.  I was stuck on a project, so I took a break and started to play with the magnets on my refrigerator.  Soon play turned into this wonderful mantra.  This was a great confidence booster.  Something awesome is definitely happening here!  –Amy DeCaussin, Director of Projects & Social Media

It’s Pi day!

It’s the one day out of the entire year where math enthusiasts can unite to promote their affinity for that magical and mysterious symbol know as Pi. The date this year marks an especially important milestone for Pi lovers because the date formatted at mm-dd-yy would be 03-14-15 and as most of you may already know 03.1415 is the initial sequence for Pi. But why give Pi its very own day you might ask? Well we have found this handy infographic with plenty of facts about power of Pi.

Thats a lot of Pi!

At Laboratory5 Inc. We bring together all elements of STEAM and tie them up into a package to promote the work each individual is doing in their fields to celebrate this work. We produce experiences so that those unfamiliar with the glorious, quirky, nerdy, geeky qualities of all areas of STEAM can be explored as an adventure to explain these fields.
