The American Museum of Natural History "Scientist Is In" is a family-friendly online program featuring scientists from various fields, from astrophysics to zoology.

Join the livestream twice a month (second and fourth Thursdays) to hear what they study and the tools they use, then bring questions for each scientist to answer live.

Every month, 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.
