Weather and climate resources

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

The Met Office has launched a schools programme to help young people understand and prepare for the impact of weather and climate on their communities.

The resources draw on the Met Office’s expertise in world-leading science and meteorology while aiming to engage pupils aged from seven to 14 in maths, science, technology, the arts and humanities.

The programme’s free set of curriculum-linked resources are based on insight from Met Office scientists and a cross-nation group of teachers who have created a suite of lesson plans and DIY summer activities.

The resources focus on key themes including extreme weather, forecasting and prediction, technology and innovation in weather, weather and climate stories and people in weather and climate. New resources will continue to be added in the months and years to come.

Themes include data visualisation technologies, the importance of reliable, credible sources of information within weather stories, and risk assessment strategies and skills to safeguard communities during extreme weather events.
