  • Request

Correspondence including proposals, correspondence with school masters regarding feasibility of the scheme (their replies were uniformly favourable), and with the School Mathematics Project.

This was originally an independent working party chaired by R.H. Tizard to explore a proposal by Strachey that a small computer be mounted in a lorry and taken round to schools for demonstrations, lectures and practical experience. The Working Party was later sponsored by the British Computer Society.
