Various lessons and handouts from Atari Computer Camps used in 1983. These were provided to me by Paul Somerfeldt, who was a teaching assistant at Camp Atari and whom I interviewed in the special ANTIC podcast episode about Atari summer camps. I believe that all of these files are duplicative of the more complete camp curriculum uploads here and here — but am uploading them separately just in case.

These pictures of Atari 8-Bit hardware were included on the Atari POOLDISK 1.0 CD-ROM and are in the public domain. They were on the CD-ROM in .PCX format, dated 1995, and converted to .PNG by Kevin Savetz in 2015. The resolution is pretty low, I suppose due to the nature of digital cameras in 1995. I am also uploading the original .PCX files in a .ZIP, though I'm not sure why you'd need them. The description in the pictures directory says: "In this directory, you see our collection of...
