- Former Presenter of Tomorrows World and Big Bang
- Science, Technology and Engineering Speaker
- Conference Facilitator
Kate Bellingham's ability to communicate science and technology issues to a wide range of audiences found the perfect outlet during her four years as a co-presenter on Tomorrow's World (BBC1). In addition to TV and radio work, Kate nowadays applies the same skills to Conferences and Corporate Events.
Kate was first spotted whilst working for the BBC as an electronics engineer and invited to audition for a BBC Schools programme called Techno. Her science and technology background - specifically, a degree in physics from Oxford University and experience as a computer programmer - made her an ideal presenter for science based programmes.
After her tenure at Tomorrow's World, Kate presented her own weekly science programme on BBC radio (BBC Radio 5 Live), as well as hosting The Big Bang (Children's ITV) and other science-based programmes for the Open University, BBC Schools and Channel 5. Following a period pursuing other interests and raising children, she resumed her broadcasting career in 2010 and presented a BBC2 series entitled Museum of Life, about the work that goes on behind the scenes at the Natural History Museum in London.
Kate is an enthusiastic and accomplished disseminator of science and technology issues, especially for younger audiences. She was one of the celebrity judges at The Big Bang Fair in March 2012, which rewarded students for excellence in science, technology, engineering and maths. She is also a National STEM Careers Coordinator, supporting the Department for Children, Schools and Families' (DCSF) STEM campaign. Kate also actively works to promote women in sciences through her role as Patron of WISE - Women into Science, Engineering and Construction.
Kate's knowledge and experience in presenting science-based programmes and promoting science and technology makes her the ideal public speaker on the subject. To book Kate for your Event, contact a Prime Performers Booking Agent via the online booking enquiry form or alternatively call 020 3500 3331
