Local high school math class gets real world project
At Pearl City High's Introduction to Math class, Ms. Kaji's students had a tough project to crack. She asked the students to find a problem in the community AND to solve it. There were 4 groups. The one that won by being voted the best and raising the most money included Katrina Bersamin, Brittny Ihara, Hunter Malaki, Kasia Oh and Coryn Perreira. They appeared on Sunrise to talk about it.
They noticed that there was a feral cat problem on their campus. They decided to create and sell t-shirts so that they could raise money for the Hawaiian Humane Society. They learned that it costs $21,000 per day to run the day-to-day operations at HHS. It's the only one in Hawaii that is open 24 hours a day and accepts all animals.
The t-shirts are $15 with 100% of the profits going to HHS. You can order one by calling Ms. Kaji at Pearl City High.
