In celebration of Pi day, the Fort Collins Creator Hub met in the basement of the Wild Boar Cafe with the intention of converting ordinary styrofoam ‘PI’ plates into flying gliders. Besides the pie plates, other materials included plastic soda straws, adhesive tape, hot melt glue and paper clips.

To bad CSU was on Spring Break– I’m sure there would be a number of ME students who would have inspired some great designs. We will have to do this again soon. The Pi planes were easy to make out of cheap materials, they could be flown safely indoors and everyone had something they made to take home.
