Hitch Learn entry-level courses focus on developing the foundation of computer programming for future subjects in computer science and AI. Therefore, the entry-level courses are designed to suit students’ background in middle school. Beyond the entry level, higher level courses are ideal for students with sufficient math skills above Grade 9.
Be default, our regular VVIP classes are currently offered exclusively online for students around the world. Group classes may be offered in-person and on-site at one of our established Hitch labs in the form of summer camps or winter camps. Please contact us for further information.
There are several factors that lead to an informed decision. Firstly, VVIP classes can be offered to all prospective students regardless of prior coding experience, while Summer/Winter Camp are only recommended to those who have prior coding experience.
Secondly, VVIP classes target those students who want to build a strong and broad skill set in a wide range of subjects being offered by Hitch Learn, including Python coding, algorithms, data structure, computer vision, robotics, autonomous driving, AR/VR, and metaverse, while Summer/Winter Camps are co-branded with Berkeley ROAR Academy offering a learning experience under the Berkeley ROAR curriculum and targeting participation of ROAR competition.
Finally, for the consideration of competing in ROAR competition, VVIP classes offer more training time to get prepared for the competition, while Summer/Winter Camp students will still be invited to attend Berkeley’s public ROAR seminars that are open to everyone online.
Hitch Learn curriculum offers a wide variety of subjects including coding, artificial intelligence, robotics, computer vision, AR/VR, and metaverse. We believe students who gain the Hitch Learn experience are in a strong position to take other advanced AP classes or other science and technology competitions. In addition, we are constantly expanding our Beyond Hitch Learn Innovation Ecosystem, which may offer other learning enrichment opportunities. Please see our website for more detail.
Prospective students may consider several factors when considering the differences. Firstly, Hitch Learn proactively partners with world-class universities to create new learning standards in many emerging technologies with high potentials to boost students’ future careers. Secondly, Hitch Learn’s curriculum avoids the pitfall of many other coding programs that are fragmented without a consistent learning journey from entry level to intermediate and then to advanced. Talented students are offered the opportunity to pursue their learning experience on a world stage that represents the highest level of technology innovation and to collaborate with other peers who may complement each other’s skill sets. Thirdly, Hitch Learn organizes its teaching format to focus on immersing the students in best practices in open source collaboration and team leadership development as well as technical competency. Finally, we encourage students to take full advantage of our rich Beyond Hitch Learn Innovation Ecosystem to continue their learning journey.
