Abstract: 

In this entertaining video, two kids, who have been blamed for their high electric bills in their home, seek advice from the Professor, who is in the process of studying trees and their impact on temperature. The professor teaches them the process of investigating through the scientific method and how trees play a much bigger role than just providing shade and lowering electric bills.
