T+T Icons In Science & Technology Volume I

Trinidad and Tobago Icon in Science and Technology presents the lives of 39 individuals who have attained a high level of distinction in their chosen fields in science and technology. Many of them are internationally recognised for their achievements as educators, healers, researchers, innovators, institution builders and policy makers.

The life stories of these national icons are now being recorded so that the important roles that they each played in developing our country will not be unknown to, or forgotten by, the generations who now benefit from their pioneering efforts. Trinidad & Tobago Icons in Science and Technology is both a tribute as well as a history book, which we hope will not just be a source of knowledge, but also a source of inspiration to our readers, and particularly to our new generation of students in engineering, science and technology.
