Space scientist and science communicator: Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE
This is a lovely film clip which will help a range of students to feel that they can choose a career in science. Dr Aderin Pocock is a Space Scientist and a Science Communicator, but she explains how she moved around from school to school and was told that she probably wouldn't be able to do anything academic due to her dyslexia. Maggie explains how being dyslexic actually helped her to focus on the science subjects even more, eventually leading to a successful career.
