Terrance Drew Junior appointed Ambassador for the St. Kitts and Nevis Robotics Association

by Eulana Weekes
St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Terrance Drew Jr, through his passion for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) Education will serve as an Ambassador for the St. Kitts and Nevis Robotics Association.
Drew has been an avid member of the SKN Robotics Association since 2017 and has travelled abroad with the team.
The Robotics Association noted in a press release that Terrance Drew Jr is the perfect fit for the role and will be a great advocate for the Robotics Association.
“As Ambassador, Mr. Drew will play a pivotal role in promoting robotics and STEAM initiatives across the nation. He will work closely with our team to expand educational opportunities, encourage young talent, and foster innovation in the field of robotics. His dedication to these causes will undoubtedly have a profound impact on the future of technology in St. Kitts and Nevis.”
The Robotics Association added, “His commitment to inspiring the next generation of leaders aligns perfectly with the mission of the SKNRA. With his wealth of knowledge and experience, we are confident that he will excel in his new position and help us achieve our goals.”
During the Issues Programme on Thursday, September 14, 2023, Ambassador Drew said he is looking forward to boosting St.Kitts and Nevis at the First Global Robotics Challenge in Singapore from October 07- 10.
“Well this year for the trip, I think it’s a very good opportunity, a very good experience on a whole. With this trip, I plan to boost the name of St. Kitts and Nevis, to push the name for St.Kitts and Nevis; because we are so little. As my dear colleague said, we’re basically not existent on the map and so I think that pushing St. Kitts and Nevis will open us up to new opportunities, new investments, new tourism and so when people realise that we do have people, even though we’re so small, a population of only 60,000 people, when people recognise that we actually have people who are interested in Robotics and Tech, they’re going to come here with investments and open themselves to us. So this is what I really intend to do… The best way to publicise ourselves is once the team does well, automatically we’re named and we’re pushed and [hearing]St. Kitts and Nevis have won, St.Kitts- Nevis has placed, that is basically already a great publicising tactic and that’s a number one [way] how I intend to do it. There is a cultural show and [at] the cultural show we’ll show ourselves, we’ll wear our clown suits, our masquerade suits and I’m organising all of that now. So I am looking forward to that and I think that- that is something the country should look forward to themselves.”
Chairman of the SKN Robotics Association said it became vitally important to have an Ambassador to help to market St. Kitts and Nevis from a cultural standpoint and also engage with other countries, whilst the Robotics team focus on building and design.
The Association said it is very proud to have Terrance Drew Jr as its Ambassador.
