2014 Math, Science, and Pi(e) Festival

Volunteers are needed to host math and science games for the 2014 Pi Day Math, Science, and Pi(e) Festival event at the Coalition for the Homeless hosted by BE. Orlando. 

There are currently planned stations in need of folks to host them (listed on the info page), but if you have creative ideas for games, please let me know.   Email if you have a specific game you'd like to be in charge of!  We need folks for the games listed on the page as well as hosting the welcome table & gift bag give-aways, hosting the Pi(e) Buffet table, floaters to help with cleanups & guiding children, and more. 

This event is free to participate and open to the public.  We ask volunteers to bring a pie (homemade preferred).

Volunteers receive a Pi Day Adventure Leader certificate and may keep their souvenir volunteer lanyard. 

The info page also has a fabulous list of Pi Day Gear shopping links.  Enjoy!  :)

Help with items: Volunteers are not required to supply the items for the station they choose to host.  However, if you would like to help us with items like games, decorations, or other supplies please let us know.

CLICK HERE for activity list, volunteer assignments, and items needed!


1:45 - volunteers meet in lobby

2:00 - setup games, room, buffet, and prizes

3:00 - 4:30 - Festival!

4:30ish - cleanup (we have the room until 5)

6:30 - there is a Pi Day social dinner (location TBD, downtown) - you are welcome to join us.  Anyone wearing something Pi-related will get a geeky gift.  Volunteers at the Coalition can just join us, anyone else can RSVP HERE or email [masked].

Want to bring your children to volunteer?

Youth volunteers are welcome at this event, but this is a fast-paced event that requires volunteers to operate independently; you may decide to bring a youngster to serve at your side, but you must supervise them and still be able to manage your station.  Please use your discretion and knowledge of your child's capability. You're welcome to contact Tee directly if you have any questions.

Note: it's hard for me to manage multiple group postings for one event.  If someone in this group would consider co-hosting just to help cross-posting volunteer assignments and updates, i'd appreciate the hand.  Otherwise, if you don't see updates here for a while, please post a comment to flag me and i'll get to it asap.

      Sorry, just saw this. I'm sorry you didn't find us - i wish you had called me to connect with the group, or the front desk could have directed you. You missed a great project! :) Hopefully you can join us next year.

    Parking note - due to the construction of the new Men's Service Center, parking is still in the dirt lot on Terry Ave (right next to the Coalition campus). There will be folks there to direct you - just tell them you're looking for the main office. Please try to arrive by 1:45.

    We've updated the volunteer list - this can certainly be adjusted at the event if there is something else you'd prefer to help with.

    We are very excited to announce that a UCF student group is raising money to sponsor the event this year!! This will mean better supplies and items for the children's gift bags.
