Welcome to Ask the Expert!

This website has been designed for KS2-5 pupils. Whether you’re deciding what to study for your GCSEs, thinking about applying for university, or just curious about a subject, we are here to answer your questions.

Summer break

We are taking a break over the summer but will be back in September. You can still submit your questions in the meantime and we will address them on our return. From the Ask the Expert team, have a lovely summer!

How does it work?

Once you have a question, simply fill in the form and press send. Sit back and relax whilst we send your question to an expert. We’ll aim to have your answer up on our website within 2 weeks.

Need some inspiration?

No question is a silly question. Can robots outsmart humans? Why do we laugh? Where does the wind come from?... We want to hear about what sparks your curiosity!
