In this short video Jaci talks about how some career pathways are clearly defined, but not so much if you study something abstract such as Maths. She has carved out a role working in agricultural research, helping farmers work out the best crops to plant to achieve the best yields and discusses why she loves it so much. Can be used alongside Year 5, 7 or 9 Biological Sciences or Year 10 Earth and Space Sciences thinking about Climate Change and how that affects our crops here in Australia, as well as Work Studies for Years 9 and 10.
