My students participated last year, but none of our questions were answered during class time. Why?

Scientists answering questions during Chat Day.

Every year, NIDA receives thousands of questions from students around the country and the world. We try to answer as many as we can as quickly as possible and continue to refine our process. We try to answer at least a few questions from each class.

Please note that we do include facts and quizzes during the chat to help keep it lively and educational. Every year, we post the transcripts about 2 weeks after Chat Day so that you and your students can see which questions we were able to answer. Search for your school name.
