26 Feb Team Saint Kitts and Nevis 2018
Welcome to Saint Kitts and Nevis, two islands but ONE Federation. Here we are, once again in the FIRST Global Robotics Competition.
Our hardworking and adamant team has so much to offer. We share the same interests but achieve it through different roles. We are a set of Dynamic and Innovative youth motivated to enlighten our nation in Information Communications and Technology.
Competing at the FIRST Global Challenge provides us with the well needed experience as well as giving us the opportunity to grow and expand our minds in robotics. “With Innovation Comes Creation”
On the islands of St Kitts and Nevis, there is a dependence on a power grid. This power grid is powered by oil. There are some businesses on the islands that have identified the need to make the transition to green energy, focusing on solar energy.
Currently, the island of Nevis is exploring by testing to see if geothermal energy is an accessible form of energy that could be capitalized on for both islands – St Kitts and Nevis. St Kitts and Nevis is excited about the possibilities of having such alternative energy on the islands.
The government of St Kitts has invested in a small solar farm, this is a step in going green in the Caribbean. Though this is a small step, we are all in support of this action since there has been sever climatic changes.
The St Kitts and Nevis Team is therefore excited about this competition because our country is exploring alternative energy options. This has therefore, put us in the perfect position to be a part of this resounding theme.
