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 2014–2015 season:

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