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 2013-2014 season:

Topic Deadline Air Date
Mars [Passed] Sept 17
Salmon [Passed] Oct 15
Trees [Passed] Nov 19
Muscles [Passed] Dec 17
Simple Machines Dec 1 Jan 21
Weather Jan 1 Feb 18
Birds of Prey Feb 1 Mar 18
The Earth Mar 1 Apr 19
Garbage Apr 1 May 20

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

Note: We are no longer taking phone calls during the show.

Send us a Written question

Look for the announcement of the 2014-2015 show topics in April 2014. Once the topics are listed, you can submit questions for those shows.
