CBC meteorologist Ryan Snoddon took his love of science, particularly with forecasting the weather, to students at Holy Trinity Elementary School in Torbay on Wednesday.

Ryan's presentation was part of the Let's Talk Science, which promotes the importance of science and math in everyday life.

The students wanted to hear about Snoddon's trip to Tornado Alley in the U.S. earlier this year. Then, they showed their own surprise for him: a tornado in a box.
