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 2014–2015 season:
|Bats||[Passed]||Sep 16, 2014|
|States of Matter||Sep 1, 2014||Oct 21, 2014|
|Astronauts||Oct 1, 2014||Nov 18, 2014|
|Earthquakes||Nov 1, 2014||Dec 16, 2014|

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.

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.
