Visualising the Invisible

Dr Shini Somara qualified with a BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering and subsequently completed her Engineering Doctorate in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). CFD is the software that allows engineers to predict how gases and liquids flow around machines. Despite her extensive academic accomplishments and passion for engineering, she only stayed in the industry for 5 years, before turning her attention to STEM communication on television and digital platforms for networks, such as the BBC, PBS, Discovery, Al Jazeera and most recently CGTN. Shini now produces and hosts a variety of STEM-related media content through TV and Digital Platforms, her podcast Scilence and children books (Spring 2020). She is a devoted advocate to encouraging and supporting women in STEM. Her most heartfelt contributions to this objective include a speech at the United Nations on International Women and Girls in Science Day 2017 and an ongoing commitment to mentoring Imperial College Women

King's College Open Day

Our next Open Day will be taking place on Saturday 5 October 2019 at 10.00am.

Open Days are an ideal way of looking around a school to see if you think this might be the one for you and your child. Our pupils play a huge part in the success of these days and thoroughly enjoy showing prospective families around their school.
