Delphi Celebrates Pi Day with Drone Aerial Photography
Students of Delphi Academy of Los Angeles participate in group formation of pi to promote math and science.
Lake View Terrace, CA – March 14, 2016 – Delphi Academy of Los Angeles, a private, independent, pre-K through 12 school, teamed up with HoverCameras, a leading-edge, aerial media company, to celebrate Pi Day by photographing a student pi formation from an aerial drone.
On Monday, March 14, 2016 at 10 AM, over 100 students joined the event to mark the day representing the most famous, never-ending, non-repeating, mathematical constant, π (pi). Pi, which is approximated to 3.14, is celebrated yearly on March 14, known as Pi Day, by educators and math enthusiasts to promote math and science to students and the general public.
“Delphi is always looking for fun ways to inspire a love of math and science in our students,” says the head of school for Delphi Academy, Karen Dale. “By providing a real-world example of the use of pi in technology, students’ education is enriched in their learning experience.”
The student body assembled on the campus field to form the mathematical symbol pi. The formation was photographed by Delphi Academy graduate and HoverCameras drone operator, Jake Isham, who flew a drone up to 300 feet high to capture the view.
“Pi is used all over the place, from making robots to flying drones,” explains HoverCameras founder, Robert Hogg. “What better way to demonstrate this fundamental mathematical concept than out on the field with a drone camera?”
