    I’m guessing that after Coleco went under, none of the scholarships were ever paid? Unless they established some sort of separate trust for them.

    Did they need to put a beep on EVERY number in the countdown in that last slate? How about just at the 2-pop?

    And I have a working Coleco, but not an ADAM.

  3. Speaking of the Coleco ADAM scholarships, I bought some ADAM paperwork/brochures from someone in South America. Within the papers was an unopened envelope for a woman (girl at the time, 1984) for a $500 scholarship. Was very fascinated by this and happy to know that the scholarships did in fact exist.
