Public engagement and outreach
Staff within the Department of Meteorology are committed to engaging with business, the general public, and in particular school students and teachers. We believe it is important to interact with the wider community in a debate on key scientific issues that our research is helping to inform, such as climate change and extreme weather. Many staff and students use Social Media to contribute to the wider community in this way.
Our staff frequently give talks and demonstrations for local schools and community groups plus we work with the Royal Meteorological Society and STEMNET as science ambassadors (see also University information and resources page for Teachers and Careers Advisors).
