Working with EDF on education
28 March 2012
We've teamed up with EDF Energy to educate young people on climate science.
Our collaboration with EDF is the latest development in our engagement with young people. EDF has created 'The Pod' - a website where registered schools can access free teaching resources, download activities, blog and share ideas on sustainability.
We've launched a climate science topic on the Pod, explaining the science behind phrases like 'the greenhouse effect' and 'climate adaptation'. This helps give children using the Pod a good understanding of the climate science underpinning the other sustainability topics they study.
Peter Thorn, EDF Energy's Head of Education, said: "We are really excited about this new collaboration. We are keen that children become interested in science related subjects from an early age and working with the Met Office will ensure that we provide interesting, high quality, and factual climate-science resources to Pod schools."
