St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN) – The St. Kitts & Nevis Robotics Association (SKNRA) has a team representing the Federation at the FIRST Global Robotics Olympics in Geneva, Switzerland.
The robotics team left the Federation five days ago and has participated in several solo and alliance practice matches and official matches.
Malyka Howell, Patrina Perreira, Lakshya Sharma, Yakira Elliott, Brandon Powell, Michael Shaw, Tau Omowale, and Anthony Li are the team members. The Mentors are Dr Ricardo Neil and Mr Zhavier Shaw.
The team mentor, Dr Ricardo Neil, met with the founder of FIRST Global Robotics Olympics, Dean Kamen. Dr Neil credits Kamen as the inspiration for creating St. Kitts & Nevis Robotics Association after he challenged Dr Neil in 2018 to form the group.
Brandon Powell, a son of the soil and a member and part of the SKNRA delegation, was accepted as a Judge at the FIRST Global Robotics Olympics. The SKNRA congratulated Powell on his achievement in a Facebook post.
The FIRST Global Robotics Olympics Challenge runs from October 13-16, 2022.
