SciFest@TCPID 2022 - A Celebration of Inclusivity in STEM

SciFest@TCPID (The Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities) 2022 took place on 2 June in Regent House in Trinity College Dublin. Due to Covid it had been cancelled in 2020 and 2021 so it was really special to meet the students face-to-face, once again and hear all about their amazing projects. This year the event turned out to be even more exciting than in previous years with a surprise visit from Minister Simon Harris TD and also the RTE 6.01 News team. Minister Harris took the time to talk with each of our students individually about their projects and later that evening the event was featured on the RTE 6.01 News.

The inagural SciFest@TCPID student exhibition took place in May 2017 and was a huge success. This was the first time that students with intellectual disabilities had taken part in SciFest. The event is run each year in association with Abbott Ireland who provide a volunteer mentor to work with each student prior to the exhibition.
