Climate Scientist *suitable for home teaching*
Elizabeth Kendon is a climate scientist at the Met Office, studying extreme weather patterns and the impact they have on Earth. This Department for Education video 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."
