The St. Kitts and Nevis Robotics Association is preparing its 2022 SKN Robotics Team to compete in the First Global Robotics Olympics Challenge in Geneva, Switzerland this October.
The competing team is made up of the eight of the Federation’s youth, guided by their mentors: the founder of Saint Kitts and Nevis Robotics Association Dr. Ricardo Neil and Mr. Zhavier Shaw.
The members are: Ms. Malyka Howell, Ms. Patrina Perreira, Mr. Lakshya Sharma, Ms. Yakira Elliott, Mr. Brandon Powell, Mr. Michael Shaw, Mr. Tau Omowale and Mr. Anthony Li.
According to the Robotics Association “the team is made up of inspiring young people who are geared up and ready to compete among friends in the spirit of fun and comradery. The call has been made by the FIRST Global Robotics Challenge and the team has answered without questions or fear.”
The First Global Challenge is an olympic-style, international robotics competition that takes place in a different country each year. First Global invites each nation to send a team to build and program a robot to compete. Teams work together to complete tasks in a game themed around one of the greatest challenges facing our planet in an effort to foster understanding and cooperation among the youth of the world as they use their abilities to solve the world’s problems.
