Ask a Scientist!

Have a question for our scientists? There are two ways to ask. You can send Joan a written question by using the form below. Or, you can send her a video question — follow this link to find out how.

To get your question asked on a show, you have to follow some simple guidelines:

  1. Your question has to relate to one of our upcoming topics
  2. You have to submit it by a specific deadline.

Video questions have additional requirements. Here are the topics and submission deadlines for the 2016–2017 season:

Topic Deadline Air Date
Computers July 1st Sept. 20th
Zoology Aug. 1st Oct. 18th
Digestive System Sept. 1st Nov. 15th
Forests Oct. 1st Dec. 20th
Exoplanets Nov. 1st Jan. 17th
Snakes Dec. 1st Feb 21st
Chemistry Jan. 1st Mar. 21st
Rivers Feb. 1st April 18th
Sleep Mar 1st May 16th

As long as a deadline hasn't passed, we'll take questions for a topic — even months in advance! So, whether your interest is Computers or Zoology, ask now.
