Rupert Tappin

Project Manager

Rupert works across a number of projects in a project management capacity.

Rupert started his career at the Science Museum, London as an Explainer in the Museum’s interactive galleries, delivering shows and workshops to broad audiences. He completed a degree in chemistry and French and soon moved to project managing the delivery of contemporary science exhibitions and coordinated international tours. As the interest in hands on science centres grew, Rupert moved to the team that developed @Bristol, including many of its interactive exhibits and experiences.

With this background in communication and influencing, Rupert entered the charity sector. He founded his own company which helped charities better understand their donors and motivations for giving, delivering insight and innovative solutions in fundraising.

In 2017 Rupert rekindled his interest in education and learning and joined KCA where he works across a number of projects in a project management capacity. He first worked on Open for Discovery at the Francis Crick Institute, and is currently working on projects that include a landmark new destination in the Middle East and a visitor centre in Dammam.
