Eat Pie Institute                mathematics and the humanities  

Engage. Explore. Alter reality.


Welcome to 
eατ · πie Institute!

Initiated in 2011 by Sabrina Chen, the 2013 Alabama State Co-Coach for National MATHCOUNTS and 2016 Alabama ARML Coach, eατ πie has grown into a program whose materials have helped students nationwide to prepare for MATHCOUNTS, the AMC's, and AIME, as well as Speech and Debate in 2015.

Originating as a non-profit organization, 

Eat Pie has pursued one primary mission: 

to create a self-sustaining learning network, in which the community teaches the community and anybody can affect change, regardless of age. More than that, it seeks connection and building friendships. 

In 2013, Eat Pie sponsored its first summer internships for middle and high school students interested in teaching and mentoring. In 2015, the Institute 

expanded to the humanities, hosting its first offerings in Speech and Debate. Currently, Eat Pie is run by Executive Director Sabrina Chen, along with the administration of Chief Instructors Aditi Limaye and Corey Tolbert.

Starting in 2018, Eat Pie will open its first branch in Austin, Texas, called Number NinjasWe continue to seek to inspire and engage young minds, in pursuing their passion for mathematics.
