This month on The Method, Brandon Hollingsworth meets a group of kids studying rocks, fossils and geologic time at the McClung Museum. What's it like to be dinosaur? We'll find out from the children themselves.

Then, Chrissy Keuper speaks with Jerry Tuskan, an ORNL scientist studying ways to extract fuel from eucalyptus plants. He'll tell us how the process might work.
