Hello, Saprk39X,

Firstly, if you haven't familiarized yourself with the Rules for Interview Questions (viewtopic.php?f=29&t=8948), please do so! I cannot stress the importance of that sticky enough!

Also, the "scientists at colleges" you're trying to reach could actually be some Experts here on the forums. It's good that you posted your question with a few days before your deadline; you're giving potential interviewees time to respond. I just wanted to clarify, though, something about your questions. You wanted to get "info about them" - you mean the scientists and their careers? Or are you specifically looking for just your skateboard question to be answered?
