The museum is fortunate to have two versions of the "AtariLab" series - the temperature kit and the light kit. This one is the light module and is suggestive of Atari's desire to muscle in on the education market that, during the period, was dominated by the Apple ][ (at least in the United States - in Canada, Commodore hardware was more likely to be in the public schools). This kit contains a cartridge, some documentation and a couple of scientific instruments that could be connected to the Atari through the joystick port. It encouraged the user to use the computer to support a "variety of simple science experiments."
