Math Kangaroo was started in 1980’s by an Australian mathematician and teacher, spread through Europe in early 1990’s and was brought to US in 1998 by Maria Omelanczuk, a mathematician and educator in Chicago.  Math Kangaroo is the largest competition for school students held annually in over fifty countries on the third Thursday of March.  Orlando Math Circle is excited to bring this competition for the first time to our community with the space generously provided by the Orlando Science Center.  We serve our mission to build a diverse student community of mathematicians by providing and promoting access to opportunities like math circle activities and competitions, motivating students to excel and encouraging futures and careers linked to mathematics and science.
