I would like to announce the ROAR Academy for Summer 2023. The Summer Academy rigorous, intensive two-week online summer program for advanced high school students (entering 10-12) interested in learning about Python programming and introductory autonomous driving algorithms. This summer program is in partnership with the FHL Vive Center, an AR/VR research center at UC Berkeley.
The goal of the academy is to support high school students in their exploration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects as a career path and provide an in-depth, interactive overview of undergraduate engineering majors, programming, hardware and software design. In the past three years, Berkeley ROAR Academy has strived to provide a rich and integrated learning ecosystem for high schools, colleges, and beyond. Our top students have participated in the ROAR AI Racing competition, been awarded ROAR Ambassadors fellowship, and even attended Indy Autonomous Challenge.
Applications are now open, and we are offering need-based financial aid. To learn more about ROAR Academy, please see here: roar.berkeley.edu/roar-academy.
