Just So You Know...The Conversation launches a Q&A service for teens

When you’re a teenager life throws up lots of questions that might sound weird but need serious answers. Many aren’t the type of thing you want to ask in front of a large group of people, and although the wisdom of Dr Google is only a few key-strokes away there’s always a hitch: how do you know you can trust what it throws up?

That’s where The Conversation comes in. We have access to Australia’s top academic experts, and we want to unlock their expertise to answer teenagers’ questions.

There are stacks of things many of us have needed to know, at one time or another: is this normal? How do I tell if I’m being taken advantage of? What are my rights if I’m stopped by the police? Is it legal to divorce your parents? And what about younger brothers?

If you’re a teenager and have a question you’d like answered, there are a few ways you can contact us:

  • email jsyk@theconversation.edu.au with your question
  • submit your question anonymously through Incogneato
  • tweet us @ConversationEDU and use the hashtag #jsyk
  • or get in contact through our education Facebook group.

Please tell us your name (you can use a fake name if you don’t want to be identified), age and which city you live in. Send as many questions as you like! We won’t be able to answer every question, but we will do our best.

Help us kick things off – send in your questions now, and it might be the first to get answered! You can send an audio recording of your question too, if you want.

We have a huge pool of experts at our fingertips, and we want to share their expertise with you.
