Overview

The St Kitts and Nevis Robotics Association – SKNRA invites each OECS county to send a team to compete in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States Robotics Challenge – OECS RC, which is a regional event that takes place at different location in the federation of St Kitts and Nevis. Themed around the greatest challenges facing our planet, including the 14 Grand Challenges of Engineering identified by National Academy of Engineering, each year a different challenge takes center stage 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. The challenges we face as a global society need to be solved, and the next generation can meet the task — together. To learn more about past years, visit our archives.

Mission

The mission of the Saint Kitts and Nevis Robotics Association – SKNRA is to inspire and introduce youth within the region to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) by solving real-world problems. It is our goal to educate the youth on the use of technology to solve real-life problems with innovative and creative ideas. OECS RC will foster networking, communication, leadership skills, teamwork and self-confidence across the OECS region.

Also is in keeping with FIRST Global Robotics mission, SKNRA also believes in inspiring youths to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
