DENISON — Denison Elementary School, a pre-K through third grade building, was among six schools selected to receive $50,000 grants through the Computer Science is Elementary project.
The grant recipients were announced by Gov. Kim Reynolds at the Future Ready Iowa-STEM Summit last week in Des Moines.
The Governor’s STEM Advisory Council and the Iowa Department of Education are partnering with business and industry on the project to transform six high-poverty elementary schools into models of innovative computer science instruction.
The goal is to create opportunities for students and a statewide network of computer science expertise.
Five other schools will also receive $50,000 grants:
• Lenihan Intermediate in the Marshalltown Community School District
