On 4 December 2017, Bolton School will welcome Tomasz Schafernaker for a free public talk in the Girls’ Division Great Hall.

During his career, he has also worked for the Met Office and presented broadcasting projects for The Weather Channel, Discovery Channel and Channel Four. His talk will include some of the science behind weather prediction and anecdotes from his career as a weatherman.
