The UCSB ScienceLine is a program that allows students and teachers, primarily from their local K-12 schools to "Ask a Scientist" science and engineering questions. The questions are automatically forwarded to designated scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) and responses are usually sent back within about week. The questions and answers are then posted in the archive. The archives can be searched by keyword or browsed by topic. Some current topics include astronomy, biology, computers, electronics, geography, geology, materials, mechanics, optics/light, physics, and science careers. Also posted on the website is a list of the scientists available to answer questions and a webcast, which at the time of this report featured the Nobel Laureate Sir Harry Kroto talking about the discovery of Buckyballs.
