Carolina Query is a series we’re launching based on your questions.
The UNC-TV Science team wants to answer your questions about North Carolina’s landmarks, environment, innovations, health, or industries.
So...what have you always wondered about?
Your questions can be complicated — "What are communities doing about the opioid crisis?" Or they can be simple — "Why does DOT use a salt and sand mixture to make the roads safe during a winter storm?"
No matter how broad or specific, we want your questions so we can satisfy your curiosity.
Here’s how it works. You submit a question below and then we work on answering your question with a story. Sometimes we'll pick questions we'd love to take on. Other times we'll ask YOU to vote for your favorites.
