Congratulations to Glen Cove High School students Lindsey De La Fuente, Maria Pita and Pierina Grispo for winning first place in the Social Science category at the 15th annual STEP (Science, Technology Entry Program) conference in Albany.
Lindsey, Maria and Pierina collaborated on a research project titled “The Prevalence of False Memory in High School Students” in which they tested 10 juniors (five boys and five girls) using a list of 15 different words from 10 different categories. Each test subject was read the list of words, with each word read repeatedly, then asked to repeat them a short time later.
