Inspiring the next generation

Fun, interactive resources
In May, we launched Rain or Shine, a new daily weather forecast for children. The daily forecasts provide children with a quick, fun and easily digestible view of the weather.
Rain or Shine is available on our Education YouTube channel and the TeacherTube website. The forecasts, prepared and presented by specially trained Met Office forecasters, provide a resource for teachers to use to plan lessons.
In June, Met Office Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) ambassadors were at The Cheltenham Science Festival, one of the UK's leading science festivals. We offered people the chance to have a go at presenting the weather forecast as well as showcasing our work with EDF Energy to educate young people about climate science.
We also contribute to 'The Pod' - a website created by EDF where registered schools can access free teaching resources, download activities, blog and share ideas on sustainability.
