Watch Kate Bellingham present the 2015 Claudia Parsons Lecture
Engineer, TV and radio presenter Kate Bellingham led an open lecture on ‘Tech versus Talent in Tomorrow’s World’ as part of the University’s second Claudia Parsons Memorial Lecture.
Kate campaigns for more women and girls to be given the opportunity to be involved in STEM. With so few women choosing engineering or the physical sciences in this country, she believes that the UK is missing out on nearly half of the available talent.
Kate, who has a degree in physics, was a presenter of the BBC’s former flagship science and technology programme Tomorrow’s World for four years and is a former Patron of WISE – Women into Science and Engineering. Kate is also the recipient of a UKRC Women of Outstanding Achievement Award for Communicating Science, Engineering and Technology to Society.
