AP students in Struthers test Yellow Creek

STRITHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – Students in the advanced placement (AP) class at Struthers High School have been studying environmental science, and the testing that is being done at Mill Creek Park has caught their attention.

As part of the curriculum, students were at Yellow Creek taking some samples of their own to study. They will run chemical tests and take a look at the health of the creek.

“With all the fish that are dying and the different levels of E.coli, it can lead to more problems, and I think that is very serious,” said Tiffany Gillen, Struthers High School senior.

The AP Opportunity Program gave Struthers High School a $7,000 grant for the program, which allowed them to purchase textbooks and chemical testing kits for their experiments.
