Learning and memory lesson plan

Braintastic! Science

Why do we all remember things slightly differently and how accurate are our memories, really? Through a series of small group activities we explore these topics and more, finishing with 10 top tips to improve revision skills.


At Braintastic! Science we inspire, engage and educate young people to help them understand the science of their amazing brains, and how to get the best out of them. We translate trusted scientific research into fun science shows, workshops and resources, which show kids that learning can be enjoyable, and something that we should continue throughout our lives. Our content promotes curiosity, encourages kids to ask questions, and highlights the importance of learning and thinking scientifically.
