Loyola University Challenge: Wireless Networks

Challenge Description:

Students will increase the signal strength of a wireless network.  To boost the strength, students will design and build a cantenna – an antenna made out of a metal can and several other parts.  Students will build several cantennas  and measure the signal strength and/or the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for their cantenna samples to investigate how can diameter, length, and signal source placement affect the cantenna performance.

Submit Challenge Solutions by April 24, 2015 to Include the name of the school, teacher, and students submitting the challenge. Questions about the challenge may also be sent to the aforementioned e-mail address.

Instructional resources to support challenge implementation are forthcoming.
