Class Connections with Scientists Around the World

Skype a Scientist’s mission is simple: to make science accessible and enjoyable through personal connections with scientists. The organization’s focus is on connecting the general public with scientific disciplines in engaging and meaningful ways, making science education available and enjoyable for everyone.

Skype a Scientist has a database of thousands of scientists all over the globe. Teachers can search for an available scientist online. The database provides the scientists’ names, time zones, fields, and what they are studying.

The organization gives students the opportunity to get to know a real scientist and get answers to their questions straight from the source. Through its services, Skype a Scientist addresses intentional scientific miseducation, lack of diversity in scientific disciplines, lack of trust in experts and science in general, and lack of communication skills in many science professions.

Skype a Scientist is off for the summer, but teachers can relay to the organization what their students may want to learn about in fall 2022. They can also watch previous sessions on Skype a Scientist’s YouTube channel.
