Students learning how to handle wi-fi technology

Massey University has received a New Zealand government grant for a project that helps rural secondary school students identify and investigate local wi-fi connectivity problems.

Massey computer engineers Faraz Hasan and Fakhrul Alam developed the programme with Taranaki-based internet provider PrimoWireless to help students understand the challenges involved in designing and operating large-scale digital services.

It is one of nine community projects to receive a share of $100,000 in the third round of the NZ government’s Curious Minds participatory science grants. The programme was launched in 2015 by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment to encourage more people to become involved in science activities.
