Bowie Elementary received a grant for $5,000 on April 15 from Dart Container Corporation.

Diana Freeman, executive director of federal programs and career and technology education, said the grant will pay for several Apple TV devices and apps to be used in classrooms.

Bowie joins past recipients Houston Elementary and Austin Elementary as beneficiaries of the program. She said Houston used the grant money to purchase iPad Minis for use in their science lab in 2013, while Austin used the funds to create their science lab in 2010.
