More about our work with Schools and Colleges
We are committed to engaging with young people, reaching not only those local to our head office in Exeter, but also the wider UK and international community.
As a major STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) employer, we aim to increase understanding of the real-world applications of these subjects. We provide inspiring role models for young people, encouraging them to take an interest in their education and empowering them to shape their own careers.
We work towards these goals with help from an active group of volunteers, a large proportion of whom are enrolled as STEM ambassadors. This programme of coordinated outreach is managed by STEMNET, and provides a valuable link between ambassadors and schools. We currently have more than 140 STEM ambassadors at the Met Office, situated at many locations both national and international. Our ambassadors attend a wide range of events throughout the year, and we also run Science Camp at our head office, the content of which is now applied to other activities and visits.
