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:
- Your question has to relate to one of our upcoming topics
- You have to submit it by a specific deadline.
Video questions have additional requirements. Here are the topics and submission deadlines for the 2015–2016 season:
|Asteroids and Comets||July 15th||Sept. 15th|
|Insects||Aug. 15th||Oct. 20th|
|Volcanoes||Sept. 15th||Nov. 17th|
|Television||Oct. 15th||Dec. 15th|
|Idaho Ecosystems||Nov. 15th||Jan. 19th|
|Five Senses||Dec. 15th||Feb 16th|
|Force & Motion||Jan. 15th||Mar. 15th|
|Horses||Feb. 15th||April 19th|
|Oceans||Mar 15th||May 17th|
As long as a deadline hasn't passed, we'll take questions for a topic — even months in advance! So, whether your interest is Asteroids and Comets or Oceans, ask now.

Note: We are no longer taking phone calls during the show.
Look for the announcement of the 2015-2016 show topics in May 2015. Once the topics are listed, you can submit questions for those shows.
