Preschool students receive computers in classrooms

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Preschoolers in the Jackson Public Schools are getting a jump-start on technology.

Each of the preschool classrooms at Lake Elementary are now home to a pair of Kid-Smart Computer centers. They're flat screen computers assembled into brightly colored computer consoles.

The computers are pre-loaded with five software programs that teach science, math and spelling.

JROTC students from JPS helped set them up.

IBM awarded the computer stations to the school district's 25 preschool classrooms. The grant is worth $158 thousand.
