The Method: Science Solving Problems

May 27, 2015

Students working on a structural engineering challenge at Destination Imagination Global Finals.

The focus of each edition of The Method is how science affects our lives. We give that theme special focus this month, with three stories that show how people use science and related fields to tackle interesting issues in their lives, and ours.

Chrissy Keuper speaks with two researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. They study the state of America's hydroelectric power sources.

Brandon Hollingsworth meets Vinny Cevasco, an Ohio high schooler who came to Knoxville last week to learn how to tackle problems using science, technology and design.

And we'll hear about a Virginia high school junior who mounted an experiment at ORNL that could help the people who plan long-duration space missions.
