Ever wonder how a paleontologist finds fossils? How an entomologist studies dragonflies? Or what tools an archaeologist brings on an expedition?

The Scientist Is In is a family-friendly online program featuring scientists from various fields, from astrophysics to zoology. Join the livestream twice per month to hear about what they study and the tools they use, and bring your questions for each scientist to answer live. See scheduled upcoming events below.

Please note: The Scientist is In: Wild Horses event has been postponed. 

Every month or so, The Scientist Is In also introduces the latest OLogy challenge—an activity that kids can complete at home and submit for a chance to be featured on OLogy, the Museum’s science website for kids.
