Educational Programs

Building a truly community owned network means we must learn and teach about implementing mesh networks in the real world. Ideally, this process will be continuous as we grow and upgrade the network. The feedback loop between education and installation ought to help us build autonomous zones.

NodeRunner

NodeRunner is a highly interactive game that teaches mesh networking concepts. We ran a session on March 6th with the Boston Ujima Project.

Upcoming Programs

These are the things on our horizon. New volunteers interested in helping facilitate should come to one of our meetups for more details and to meet the team. Most of our outreach has been with Ujima Boston, so if you have other venues/organizations in mind -- please get in touch.
