The GROWS Project is funded by the Medtronic Foundation and it's main aim is to bring science to underserved students in an effort to widen participation of young people from underserved and marginalized groups. Our GROWS team is working alongside of many community partners (including Foróige, National Youth Council Ireland, TULSA, University of Sancturies, Access Centre, Kinderburo, and more) to delivery two exciting programs across Ireland: the Youth Science Club and Cell Explorers Escape Room.
