ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia State University officials say a professor will use a grant to develop curriculum to bring computer science to urban elementary school classrooms.

Officials say associate professor in the GSU college of education Caitlin McMunn Dooley has been awarded a three-year, $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation.

University officials say Dooley is working with the International Society for Technology in Education and the Georgia Institute of Technology to improve elementary students’ capacity for learning, creativity and motivation while they learn about computer science.

GSU officials say Dooley hopes the project helps find ways for students from underrepresented groups to become participants and leaders in the digital society.
