On the 14th March (Pi day) a group of 50 Year 10 students took part in a range of Pi activities. They memorised up to 30 digits of Pi, solved Pi related Dingbats and learnt about the importance of Pi in Engineering, Medicine and Finance.

Jack Sainty, a student at the University of Bedfordshire then delivered a talk on student finance. The year 10s went onto ‘live like a student’ where they were given a budget and had to work out costs for accommodation, food, books and other higher educational expenses they might incur. Students realised the importance of other factors such as getting a job to support them during their studies. Overall the day was a huge success!
