Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States Robotics Challenge

$ 378,421.15 Needed Donation

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.

Transforming the Region with Robotics

Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States Robotics Challenge – OECS RC

Dr. Neil and the FIRST Global National Robotics team has found it fitting to start a national robotics challenge in the OECS region and ultimately CARICOM. It is on this premise that they formed what is called the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States Robotics Challenge – OECS RC.

OECS National Teams

Just as the FIRST Global Challenge, the St Kitts and Nevis Robotics Association – SKNRA and by extension the St Kitts and Nevis National Robotics Challenge – SKNNRC believe in providing all youths with an avenue to use there abilities to network and build relationships with each other all over the work. Participating teams are composed of students – aged 14 through 18 years – with the common goal of increasing their knowledge of Science, Technology, Art, Engineering, and Mathematics – STEAM so that they can become the next generation of scientific leaders who will work together to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems, from food security and access to clean water, to finding better medicines and securing cyberspace.

Registration for event volunteers, and team is open. If you have questions, contact support@sknra.org.
