NIHERST and the Caribbean Council for Science and Technology (CCST) are proud to have introduced an initiative to document and educate the public on the outstanding achievements of Caribbean nationals in the fields of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI).  Some of these outstanding sons and daughters of our region have taken their place among the leading luminaries in the world of science.  It is hoped that by documenting and highlighting their personal achievements, NIHERST will have provided a valuable information resource as well as a source of inspiration to youngsters keen on pursuing careers in science and technology.

Our Caribbean Icons are men and women, who faced unique challenges and were motivated and inspired along the way by various mentors and circumstances to persevere.  You are invited to follow the stories of these remarkable individuals, recount their efforts, and be inspired to excel.

We also have a DVD Video Documentary that features some of our Icons. The videos are also available on the NIHERST YouTube channel.
