Join us for a free webinar on 22 March at 10am
Loved by teachers and kids across the world, DK Eyewitness is an amazing series of books that cover just about every subject under the sun (including Astronomy!). Every book is jam-packed with photos, illustrations and juicy awe-inspiring facts designed to help kids become real experts.
In March your class could find out even more amazing facts by joining our free 45 minute ‘Ask an ‘Ologist’ webinar on 22 March at 10am.
Our 'Ologists are the experts behind the bestselling Eyewitness series - brilliant academics, TV presenters, museum curators, authors and even film consultants.
Your class can put them to the test and submit the toughest questions of their careers!
The four best questions will win a set of 50 Eyewitness books AND a special school’s visit from one of the ‘Ologists.
Get involved and challenge the ‘Ologists!
Send in your class’ questions here. No question too big or small, just make sure that they are related to our four chosen topics of Dinosaurs, Ancient Egypt, Science or Animals.
Submitting questions is easy and takes less than five minutes; simply gather your class’ questions beforehand and submit them in one go (and if you forget some, you can always use the form again).

We want to make this event as accessible and easy to join as possible! So all you will need is a screen, speakers and access to the internet. We'll send through a link in advance and you will be able to join the event via that link, wherever you are, whether you're in the hall or individual classrooms. If you are worried about the tech side of things, perhaps ask someone who is confident with screens/speakers (like your network manager) to be around on the day, just in case there are any issues.
