The Caribbean Science Foundation (CSF) was founded in 2010 with the goal of creating a more inclusive landscape in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Participating countries include: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda,  Bahamas, Barbados,  Belize, Dominica,  Grenada,  Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts & Nevis, St.Lucia,  St. Vincent, and Trinidad & Tobago.

Throughout the year, CSF advocates for more STEM learning in schools, provides STEM teacher training, promulgates and hosts robotics and coding camps, and introduces Caribbean youth to entrepreneurial and commercial opportunities. In addition to focusing on the technological aspects of STEM, CSF helps students to develop the interpersonal skills needed to network and form strategic alliances.

CSF supports sustainable economic development by seeking out funding sources for startups and established technology projects. Local expertise and knowledge are put to use to benefit government agencies and the communities they serve through the Caribbean Diaspora for Science, Technology and Innovation (CADSTI).
