Oakcrest High School student Craig Atkinson, of Mays Landing, and science teacher Dave Jungblut, discussed a video project they will be working together on.
Oakcrest High School science teacher Dave Jungblut, who has been selected to give an hourlong presentation at the American Geophysical Union in December, spoke with some of his students during a free period.
Student Trevor Tunney, of Mays Landing, who worked on cleanup after the derecho during the summer, said he noticed that, 'White oaks generally tended to be a little stronger. They're a little more resilient to the wind, so they weren't really uprooted. They were kind of snapped in half or snapped at a certain point of the tree. Maple, where they've got a shallower root system, they kind of blew over.' Classmate Julia Barnett, 18, of Mays Landing
