EDISON, NJ-- First-grade students at The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison culminated their recent study unit on weather with a virtual field trip and Zoom session with meteorologists Stephen Shiveley and Trent Davis from the National Weather Service Tampa office. 

The professional meteorologists shared a presentation about extreme weather. They talked about hurricanes, blizzards and tornadoes and showed live videos of storms and how they form. They also discussed safety during these types of storms.  To conclude the presentation, the meteorologists opened it up to questions from the first graders and their teachers.
