ED 351, Ask an Expert


If you have a question that you can't simply look up, there are several resources available on the Internet. The following sites allow you to ask an expert and usually let you search to see if a particular question has been answered before. You may notice that even the "experts" can be stumped and sometimes give different, even contradictory information. This is a great opportunity for class discussion on the nature of science and how disagreements are settled in science.
