Queens, NY – Assemblywoman Nily Rozic (D, WF-Queens) is announcing that she has allocated $250,000 for the upgrading of P.S. 154’s computer lab and classroom. The state funding will be used to purchase 36 desktop computers, 2 color printers, 1 Promethean board, and 1 document camera.
“Having updated technology is crucial for engagement and learning across the board,” said Assemblywoman Rozic. “I understand the importance of prioritizing funding for our youngest scholars. Every student deserves to have the technology and resources necessary in order to learn and grow.”
The new equipment will provide support for the digital arts program, where 5th grade students engage with graphic design. It will also support the “Math Problem-Solving Lab”, where students will be able to visualize their thinking while problem-solving.
“Our mathematicians at P.S. 154 are grateful to Assemblywoman Rozic for her generous donation,” said Principal Pamela Gathers. “This technology gives our students access to engaging high-interest learning opportunities.”
Earlier this year, Rozic also announced $375,000 in funding for upgrades to Townsend Harris High School’s student publication center and music tech space as well as $120,000 for technology upgrades at P.S. 120 in Flushing.
