Gather round Chicago!  There’s still time to sign up for our 6th Annual Pi K Fun Run, this Wednesday, March 14th—3.14.  Join us  as we team up with Fleet Feet Sports in Old Town, Lincoln Square and Oak Park to exercise our love of all things circular and celebrate Pi Day with a 3.14 mile run/walk starting at 6:28pm (or 2 Pi).  Each location also hosts a post-party featuring pizza from Connie’s, a Chicago favorite, pie from Café Selmarie (Lincoln Square), Hoosier Mama (Old Town) and Trader Joe’s (Oak Park) and trivia with prizes.  And this year, ISC is excited to award each participant with a special Pi Day run medal!

As of today, we still have tickets available for the Lincoln Square and Oak Park locations.  Get your tickets at

And don’t forget to visit the local businesses supporting ISC and offering Pi Day promotions, including Stan’s Donuts at all locations!  Follow ISC on our blog and on social media for a list of participating Bakeries and Restaurants.

Total Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024

Total Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024

On April 8th, 2024, a total solar eclipse will sweep across North America, from Mexico to the Maine-Canadian border. For those who experienced the spectacular solar eclipse of 2017, this one will be similar, crossing the United States from west to east and passing through or near several major metropolitan areas. And while its path is quite different this time, Carbondale, Illinois, a reasonable destination for Chicago-area residents, will once again be on the line of totality.    

Just a little background on eclipses:  Lunar and solar eclipses are not uncommon – they each occur about twice a year when the moon is crossing the ecliptic, the path of the sun in the sky.
