Celebrate Kansas Voices

A learning community empowering digital witnesses of Kansas oral history

A cell phone recorded video created on March 14 ,2009, for the Film on the Fly movie contest. The Pi Day story prompt was: "Show how Pi determines the circumference or diameter of a pizza, carousel, Ferris Wheel or any circle near you." Since we were visiting relatives in Wichita, Kansas, today we chose to use the Century II building in our movie. Century II is the convention center in downtown Wichita, and it is shaped like a perfect circle. By calculating the diameter of the building using Google Earth, we were able to calculate the circumference (or perimeter) of the entire building. Learn more about Film on the Fly on http://filmonthefly.ning.com. This was a Speed of Creativity Production - http://www.speedofcreativity.org.
