Manufacturer: Atari

This is a rather curious product. It makes considerable sense as a way of marketing the Atari 400 / 800 and attempts to make the most of the technology available at the time. The back of the box features the phrase "Read-Listen-Respond-Learn." The product requires the Educational System cartridge and it is set up so that the user loads a series of questions from tape and then works through them. This sort of software was the kind of thing that was made available to convince parents that they weren't simply buying another game machine for their child. Having long left our academic days behind us, nobody at the museum has fired this software up to test their recall of key physics concepts.

Part of the Atari Educational System.
