This is a good video to highlight the difference between weather and climate, as well as showing an exciting career with the Met Office. The clip illustrates how skills in science, mathematics and computer programming are applied, and would leave students thinking about careers in science at the end of a lesson on climate change.
Elizabeth Kendon is a climate scientist at the Met Office, studying extreme weather patterns and the impact they have on Earth. This clip introduces her work and how she uses mathematical modelling to study climate change. She illustrates how skills in science, mathematics and computer programming can be applied.
Elizabeth says, "When a flood or other extreme weather occurs, I work out what damage it might have done, and try to figure out the likelihood of it happening again. Climate change is a really important issue right now, so it feels great knowing that my science and maths background is helping me provide a potential solution. If you are concerned about the environment I can't think of a better job."
