The Program

Ithaca Math Circle, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing extracurricular STEM and problem-solving sessions to students in the Ithaca community. Founded in June 2022, the organization also intends to improve the engagement of Cornell students with public school students in the Ithaca community. Our educational philosophy is that students will thrive when they have mentors who enjoy sharing their love of learning. Our mentors will share their favorite puzzles, games, and riddles with their mentees in order to promote curiosity and teach problem-solving and critical thinking techniques.

In partnership with the Ithaca City School District, we experienced a successful Fall 2022 launch and are looking forward to continuing our work with students in Spring 2023.
