Although the main event which was scheduled to take place at the University of Ghana campus in collaboration with the Department of Mathematics was canceled due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, AIMS Ghana ensured that the essence of the declaration of 14 March was felt in Ghana and the world by marking the day on campus and through social media and radio discussions.

The day was climaxed with the cutting of a beautiful Pi cake baked by an AIMS alumna. The cake was decorated with the concept of Pi.
