Irving 5th Grader can Recite First 250 Digits of Pi from Memory

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant (the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter) which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and eat pie.

Aarin Shah is a student from Irving Tx that can recite, from memory, the first 250 digits of Pi.    In the video attached, Aarin proves his skill while blindfolded, which is a great achievement for an 11-year-old.  

Aarin attends an online private school named Ignite Learning Academy and is an extraordinary young man.   In addition to reciting the first 250 digits of Pi, Aarin can recognize alphabets in over 10 languages including Japanese (hiragana, katakana), Hindi, Greek, Russian, Amharic, Georgian, Korean, Telugu, and Gujarati.   He takes piano lessons at Coppell Conservatory and has perfect pitch, being able to identify musical notes based on hearing only.  

Aarin definitely has a great future ahead of him.
