About 5 weeks ago How many digits of Pi can you name?

To keep you in the loop (or circle), Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi 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.

To celebrate this holiday, some of our Googlers hit campuses with pies (or pizza pies!). For example, the Women in Computer Science at Brown University partnered with Google to spread some Pi Day cheer with an assortment of pies and pizza and Googlers visited the University of Washington to give out pies to hungry students preparing for finals. 

Happy Pi Day!

Today, for our final post in our “Spotlight on a STEP Intern” series, we’re featuring Yael Cohen, a STEP Intern on the Search team in Tel Aviv.

"Excited as I was to be accepted as a STEP intern at Google, I was also very nervous. I was worried I wouldn’t be good enough or that my team would treat me as an intern who lacked skills. I’m pleased to say I was very wrong! 

During the internship, I learned a lot about working and coding in a mega-company like Google. I took a special interest in the product development process at Google which my team was happy to include me in. I had the opportunity to engage with many of the incredible Google employees around me and even hear from some of my role models such as Vint Cerf and Ray Kurzweil. 

STEP gave me the opportunity to be an actual part of the team. I gave input on our product, researched relevant topics, coded tools

About 9 weeks ago Applications for the Summer Trainee Engineering Program (STEP 2014) are open!

Today we’re featuring Tina Fallahi, a STEP Intern on the Infrastructure team in Krakow as part of our “Spotlight on a STEP Intern” series, an inside glimpse of our STEP Internship in Europe.

"Over summer I worked with the Infrastructure team at Google Krakow. The team primarily supports Google services and internal tools. Throughout the internship, you are treated as a real member of the team. I attended weekly planning meetings as well as daily stand-up meetings. I learned how Google projects are developed and completed step by step- very different to the student projects I was used to.

Working alongside the infrastructure team based in America, I also discovered how teams can function across different continents and the importance of good communication. I also learned new testing methods and just how important it is to apply these methods when working on projects of such a
