Maui Math Circle is a student-run community service program where middle and high school students teach advanced math concepts and problem solving skills to elementary school students in grades 3, 4, and 5 from public, private, and home-schools throughout Maui County. Due to the shortage of engineers and mathematicians, the goal of the program is to expose STEM education to younger students. The program consists of six monthly sessions at Pu'u Kukui Elementary School during the school year.
As a middle school student, Jasmine Doan, the founder of this program, discovered her passion for mathematics through participating in math competitions such as MathCounts and the American Mathematics Competition. She gained self-confidence and determination as a result of learning how to solve challenging math problems. From her personal experience, she learned that resources are limited for younger students to excel in mathematics in the Maui County; she was inspired to start this service project. Her ultimate goal is to instill a passion for mathematics within Maui County's youth.
