Do you have a question about a science- or engineering-related topic? The National Science Foundation invites you to "Ask a Scientist or Engineer" during Global Science & Technology Week. Your questions can relate to anything in the areas of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology research and education. You'll receive answers by leading scientists and engineers -- experts in their fields -- who are volunteering their time to answer questions for GSTW.

• Why do we have eyelashes?
• How do airplanes fly?
• Where do bugs go in the winter?
• How does a telephone work?

These are just a few of the thousands of questions children, parents, teachers, and others can ask of scientists and engineers on the National Science Foundation's website for Global Science & Technology Week, April 28-May 4, 2002.
