In this paper, we describe the SWARM course. SWARM was designed for Honor Senior students to learn and practice secure wireless communication in the setting of rescue mission type of applications [1]. The theoretical component of the course covers aspects such as cryptography, security protocols, and wireless communication protocols. On the practical side, the students’ teams design a system composed of a smartphone, a sensor network, 2-3 robots controlled through a multi-hop network, and compete for quickly localizing an object that periodically transmits a beacon message.
