Beyond the Forecast: Using STEM in the Real World

Meteorologist Ryan Breton to Speak at NECC’s STEM Speakers Series

Ryan Breton in the Newsroom

New Hampshire meteorologist Ryan Breton will speak at the next NECC STEM Speakers Series lecture.

Weather is so much more than just the forecast. Atkinson native and New Hampshire meteorologist Ryan Breton will discuss why he was attracted to the field and how it relates to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

Breton is currently employed as a meteorologist at NH1 News. In 2006, Breton developed a local weather website to hone his forecasting skills and gained a loyal following in the Merrimack Valley.

Breton graduated with a meteorology degree from Pennsylvania State University, where he earned several awards, including the award for outstanding achievement in broadcast meteorology and the prestigious GEMS Diamond Award for leadership and service. He interned for two summers with the weather team at WCVB-TV in Boston.
