“We are teaching the others how we learn certain new skill sets and some of the skill sets we would have learnt is engineering, technological skills and so on and these all fall under STEAM or STEM and also along with that we are also teaching our own culture and how we are in St. Kitts and Nevis to the world and that’s a great thing that we are doing,” he said.
