Legend has it that on this day, Greek mathematician, scientist, and scholar, Archimedes discovered while taking a bath that an object’s volume could be accurately measured by being submerged in water! Unable to contain his excitement, Archimedes leaped out of the bathtub and yelled, “Eureka, Eureka!” as he ran through the streets of Syracuse, Greece. No one knows the exact date of Archimedes’ birth. However, we do know he was born in the year 287BC. To honor Archimedes, we commemorate the date he leapt out of the bathtub, June 14th.
