We have accepted 25 students for the first year (2016-2017). The year-long program began with a four-day summer camp, in which students worked on the AMC 8 problems and attended math expository talks. The fall program is further enhancing and enriching these topics covered in the summer camp.
The 2016-2017 Inspired by Math program is funded by Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grant (provided by the Mary P. Dolciani Halloran Foundation via the Mathematical Association of America), Novice Math Circle Grant (via the National Association of Math Circles, a program of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute), Emporia State University, and Emporia Middle School.
