Prime and the Schools Project
In 1981, with generous support from Prime (UK), a P400 was installed to provide a service for five local Secondary Schools:
- Abingdon (2)
Liz Lee of Wantage School acted as the lead person on the side of the schools and Peter Kent from RAL.
Terminal facilities were installed in the schools and connected via time-division multiplexed leased lines to the Prime.
This was a very successful project and the P400 was upgraded to a 550/1 in 1986, again with generous support from Prime. One of the benefits of this project to RAL was a significant number of recruits, straight from school, with experience of using Primes.
