The Vive Center is excited to announce the ROAR Academy. The academy is a rigorous and intensive two-week program for advanced high school students who have demonstrated an aptitude for academic and professional careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. Talented and motivated high school students who are entering 9th-12th grade in the Fall have the opportunity to work with UC Berkeley faculty, researchers, and scientists while focusing on learning about Python programming and introductory autonomous driving algorithms.
The students through this 10-day program will be expected to learn sufficient knowledge to participate in ROAR competition entirely in software simulation, dubbed the S2 series for K-12 students (compared to the current S1 series that includes college students and professional learners).
The goal of the academy is to support you in your exploration of engineering as a career path and to provide an in-depth and interactive overview of engineering majors, programming, hardware and software design, and allow students to use this experience in college applications
Advanced High School students (entering 9th-12th grade) who are considering a STEM career path and would like to apply to AI, Robotics, and Data Science as their intended college majors.
The curriculum is also suitable for those who are interested in learning Python programming in general and more narrowly, upcoming autonomous transportation revolution and the foundation of their supporting technologies.
Applications are open now!
