On November 5, 2017 at 1:50 am, the Science Museum of Western Virginia will present the 4th Annual Time Traveler Pi-Miler Race.  It’s the only race in Roanoke where you go backwards in time.  The unique distance and time support the M in the Science Museum’s STEM initiatives and demonstrate how much fun you can have with math and science!

The ultimate finish line for this race is to raise funds for the Science Museum of Western Virginia, which allows us to continue making science and technology education available and accessible to children and adults throughout western Virginia.  Your support is helping the museum to change and grow into one of the foremost science centers in the area.
