Friday April 4th – Sunday April 6th, 2014
We are HackPSU.
A 36-hour (learning) Hackathon at Penn State University where students can learn to code or compete to build the best hack, software, hardware or app.
(This event is free) Whether you have a background in programming or a knack for creativity, this is the perfect opportunity to form a team around an idea, build a prototype, and present it to reputable judges at the end of the
36 hours. There will be workshops available for all skill levels, so you don’t have to be a programmer to get involved.
|What is a “Learning Hackathon”?
A learning hackathon is when students interested in technology come together to either build or learn how to build something awesome. HackPSU has everything from workshops to mentors to make sure you meet your goals.
|Who can participate?
You dont have to be a Penn State student to attend. We call forth any college students with an interest in programming, designing or hardware!
|Do I need a team to sign up?
We encourage established teams to come and compete, but it is not a requirement. If you don’t have an idea or team, come anyways. One will find you.
| What should I bring?
Chargers, laptop, cell phone, change of clothes, snacks, toothbrush and anything else you need for your 36 hour endeavor.
There are no constraints on what you can build; it
can be anything from a website to hardware technology. However, you may not begin building your
project before the start of the hackathon.
|Will there be food?
There will be complimentary meals throughout the day along with a variety of refreshments. Contact us if you have any allergies and we
will do what we can to help.
This is more than a
It’s an opportunity for innovation and inspiration. Our sole purpose is to help facilitate and expedite the production of your ideas. So if you are interested in technology
and want to make a change in the world, welcome to HackPSU.
