What is HackPSH?

Built by students of Penn State Harrisburg's IEEE Student Chapter, HackPSH is a dynamic hackathon focused on solving challenges dedicated towards subjects within the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering disciplines. Participants will be provided with Raspbery Pi Pico W kits to build various circuits and engage in coding challenges via HackerRank. We aim to explore learning in areas such as cryptography, circuitry, algorithms, and much more!

Who is it for?

HackPSH caters towards students eager to explore the intricacies of building complex circuits and solving real-world coding problems. We aim our event towards those who want to improve their skills while providing an inclusive environment for learning and competition. With a diverse range of skill levels in mind, the event encourages participation from beginners to experienced students, fostering a collaborative and competitive environment.

What is the theme?

The theme for HackPSH is currently in the works, awaiting its grand reveal. Traditionally, HackPSH selects themes that encourage boundless creativity, allowing participants to embark on unique projects. Stay tuned for the exciting theme announcement—it's going to be epic! 🚀🌑



Teams are comprised of up to 4 people. Team members must work together to complete challenges and earn points. Once joining a team, members cannot leave to join other teams.


Our commitment to integrity means promoting a culture where ethical practices are the norm. We believe in the power of collaboration, honesty, and respect in driving innovation.
