Planning for HackPSU this fall is in full swing with the help of the Penn State EdTech Network. Thanks in part to a sponsorship from the EdTech Network, HackPSU will be holding another 24-hour hacking event for students from around the region to build, innovate, and explore technology in new and exciting ways.
HackPSU is a northeast regional hackathon run by the students. Situated in the heart of Happy Valley, HackPSU has hosted 7 hackathons in the past 4 years and brought together over 2,000 students from 20+ universities. This fall marks the 8th event and the EdTech Network is proud to be a part of such a momentous event.
“We see a clear connection between the EdTech Network and HackPSU and are proud to support this innovative event,” said Daren Coudriet, the EdTech Network Entrepreneur in Residence. “HackPSU is all about creating opportunities for innovation – combining technology with the creativity and genius of students. This is in concert with the EdTech Network’s mission to foster innovation with the potential to improve World Campus capabilities, leading to increased efficiencies and an enhanced student experience. The EdTech Network recognizes that students are a key stakeholder group that needs to be engaged in helping find new and innovative solutions to transform education.”
More than 400 hackers are expected to be a part of the workshops and competitions, being held November 12-13, 2016, at the Business Building on the University Park campus. HackPSU is free and open to all undergraduate student. Visit HackPSU online to view a schedule of events and register.
