Hardware Interface Project (HIP) is a Computer Science applied group. We work closely with the Green Science applied group. All applied groups are interdisciplinary by nature, and so we might have students from other majors.


  • to educate individuals and groups in a safe environment
  • to do real work and build real skills that can't come from a classroom alone
  • to benefit the Earlham community
  • to encourage diversity and inclusiveness
  • to do cool things


  • energy production and monitoring
  • weather and earthquake monitoring
  • developing visualizations for data we collect
  • recording construction of new buildings
  • running a time server

Future Projects

  • collecting energy readings directly from Earlham's central switch
  • normalizing electricity readings so that they can be compared objectively
  • building a new webpage for the HIP group
