STRUTHERS, Ohio (WYTV) – A group of Struthers High School students braved the wilds Thursday in the name of science.
The Struthers Advanced Placement environmental science class visited Yellow Creek Park to test the health of the water. And although the field work is a requirement for the class, their instructor hopes that what they learned on Thursday opens their eyes to broader environmental concerns.
“Well, hopefully they are going to get a little bit of understanding about what makes a quality habitat for species, fish, bugs, and things like that that live in the water,” Struthers High School science teacher Geoff Malcolmson said.
Malcomson said the testing was made possible by a grant from the Dell computer company. The Eastgate Regional Council of Governments also pitched in with supplies and training.
