The ROAR Academy is a rigorous and intensive two-week, online summer program for advanced high school students in California who have demonstrated an aptitude for academic and professional careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. It is offered in partnership with the AR/VR research center at UC Berkeley
The goal of the academy is to support high school students in their exploration of engineering as a career path and provide an in-depth, interactive overview of undergraduate engineering majors, programming, hardware and software design. They will be primarily learning about python programming and machine learning. Students will then be invited to race their autonomous driving agents and compete in the Summer ROAR Competition. Students will also be able to reference their ROAR Academy experience in their college applications.
