Saturday March 14th was "Pi Day," (Pi is 3.14) and it's also Einstein's birthday.
The event had physics demonstrations, hands-on science exhibits and much more. There was free pie for the kids and real ice cream made in minutes with the help of liquid nitrogen.
Students say it's a great way to show kids that science is not boring. "We're just trying to show them that science is a lot of fun. It's not boring. It is just something that is really cool and it would be great to know about," said Dayton Smye, a sophomore at I.S.U.
"We're really excited to give them an opportunity to see science in action and to do some fun stuff that they might not normally be able to do and hopefully inspire them to study science more for themselves," says president of the Society of Physics Students Andrew Harmon.
Einstein would have turned 130 years old today.
