The St. Kitts and Nevis Robotics Association (SKNRA) is moving to implement an after-school robotics programme in September 2020 to expand the base of actively engaged youth.
“We have a robotics group that is going to be activated in September, depending on how things go which is going to be classified the afterschool robotics programme,” explained Dr. Ricardo Neil, SKNRA Founder and Chairman. “We are targeting an after-school robotics programme to get more of the youth involved.”
Dr. Neil explained the importance of implementing a programme of this nature.
“One of the reasons we are doing this and are pushing it is because science and technology is one of the biggest industries across the world,” said Dr. Neil. “Most of our dependence in the Caribbean region is on a lot of stuff outside of science and technology.
