I would challenge students to create a physical network that transfers information from one part of the school to another. Students would have to determine what kind of data they wanted to transfer, the locations (or nodes) within their network, determine how they would link those nodes (or links) to transfer the data securely, and the way in which they could structure that data into information at the end of the network. I could also challenge other students to be the hackers of these networks. They could come up with ways of interrupting the flow of or corrupting the data as it travels through the network. The Network Developers and Network Hackers would have to use a combination of computational thinking, systems thinking and problem solving to successfully build or hack the systems.
