From 20 June to 01 July 2011, you can ask a scientist a question about their exhibit at the Summer Science Exhibition 2011.

For example, you could ask a question about the scientific theories or experiments related to the exhibit. Or you could ask about possible practical applications of the research.

The scientists running the exhibit will try and answer each question as soon as possible.

To help the scientists, please leave questions which are:

  • Related to science
  • Relevant to that exhibit
  • Not too long
  • Not a repeat of someone else’s question
  • Of value to the discussion

The Royal Society will decide which questions to post and may edit posted questions. Please read the Acceptable Use Policy before leaving a question.


You can ask questions on the following exhibit pages:

  • Aurora explorer
  • Bats & bugs
  • Carbon flatland
  • Discovering particles
  • Hearing shapes
  • Keyhole surgery
  • Noisy world
  • Pesticide resistance
  • Solar nanotech
  • Traffic control
  • Trauma surgery
