A mock press conference held Friday by 15 eighth-grade students at Thomas Jefferson Middle School as part of their EER (Explore, Enrich, Research) studies described how the students applied a possible zombie attack to several courses of information.

The students were tasked with answering this question: "How would our country handle a global crisis?"

Teacher Suzanne Luther said she was pleased with the students' presentation and noted they developed more research topics than they could explain in the time allotted. "But they were able to answer questions based on their research," she said.
