SciFest @TCPID is an initiative that was started in 2017 by Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities in association with Abbott Ireland and SciFest. 2019 saw the 3rd edition of the annual event whereby 1st year students from the Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice (ASIAP) course worked with their mentors from Abbott Ireland (Liffey Valley & Cherrywood Campuses) on their science projects over a series of weeks. The SciFest @TCPID exhibition was showcased in the Science Gallery Dublin on 29th May 2019.
Flagship Grant support from The Ireland Funds will allow the TCPID to develop a Graduate Internship Programme, extending on the two-year Certificate in Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice to include a third year of employment internship experiences. This will ultimately enable people with intellectual disabilities to compete for employment on a more equal level to their non-disabled peers and, as a result, to lead more independent lives.
