Should we alter the Ask an Engineer page?


I’ve always been a bit dissatisfied with the Ask an Engineer section of the site. The idea is that we provide a group of engineers available to answer questions from students and perhaps educators. We give an email address for people to send their questions. We have 8 or 9 people who receive email that goes to this address.

A problem is that the email address doesn’t get used very much. I think we’ve had a handful of emails over the few years that we’ve offered the service. That could be because it isn’t featured prominently enough, or maybe the word isn’t getting around about the service, or maybe people who might need this service get it somewhere else.

Does anyone have any ideas about what we should do with Ask an Engineer?
