GNU Radio Educators
The mission of the GNU Radio Educators Group is to promote and support the use of GNU Radio in education, in the widest possible sense of the term - from Middle School through High School and Undergraduate to Graduate education, and for the general public. This includes both learning about GNU Radio (and DSP) as an end in itself, as well as using GNU Radio to facilitate wider exploration of, and interest in, science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Potential GNU Radio Educational Projects
No Hardware Necessary
Some Hardware Required
- Check out Ten Things You Can Do with Software-Defined Radio.
- Detect FM radio with a simple antenna, RTL-DSR dongle, and a laptop.
- Build a neutral hydrogen (HI) horn antenna, make a map of the Milky Way, and discover Dark Matter.
- Build a Magnetic loop Antenna, use it to monitor the strength of ELF submarine communication signals, to detect Sudden Ionospheric Disturbances.
- Detect cube-sats
- Communicate with the ISS
More Specifically Educationally Oriented
Tutorials and Other Guides and Resources
GNU Radio Specific
- Package all of the above up into coherent, well-documented, OOT modules.
- Develop High School / Undergraduate class activities / lesson plans / labs / curricula which leverage the above.
- Establish High School DSP Clubs, like Lego Robotics clubs, but better.
- Establish some form of DSP competition, sponsored by a big DSP company, with things like GPU Cards as prizes
