2007 Pathways and Access to Careers in Technology
Field Team Research Group 6F: the pacters

Our Group Members include: morgan carter, tamara bean,
maura gravit, magdelina habila, and jacob campbell

Our PACT Challenge: Our challenge at pact was to basically learn
technology and to have fun at the same time.

The facts we learned about computer networks: We learned about
alot of things like how the router works and things like that. Also why
we need the router. We need the router because it is in the middle
of all the networks to get something there faster.


The facts we learned about data transmission: One of the facts we
learned about data transmission is that the first computer was our
brains and actually what a computer is. A computer also has to have
a input, output, storage, and process.

The facts we learned about satellite communication: One of the facts
we learned about satellite communication is that when you use the
telephone it does go through a router to get to where it is going faster.

We learned how to build a laser data transmitter to solve the
challenge.  To successfully transmit data we had to: When we all
built the data transmitter we all had to listen carefully so we would
know what to do but at one point, we had some technical difficulties
and did not successfully transmit data.

Based on these studies and our transmitter results our
recommendation to the town of Stemville, KY is:
We decided that
Stemville kentucky should build more satellites. And that their
circuits might happen to be disconnected.
