Did you know we can’t always trust everything we remember? And what are the best techniques for smart revision? In this interactive science show we make learning fun and help students understand what's actually going on in their amazing brains, to help boost learning and make exam prep that little bit easier with top techniques to revise.

For an introduction to learning and memory for KS2/KS3, try Memory Games instead.

  • How scientists can implant false memories into people’s brains

  • The brain region that lets you form new memories- and what happens if it is damaged

  • The limits of your own short term memory and how memories in the brain are transferred from short- long term memory

  • Why we forget things- and how this can be helpful

  • A range of techniques for smart revision that help boost learning!

  • Scientific thinking and working objectively (KS4)

  • Appreciating the power and limitations of science (KS4/KS5)

  • Memories are stored as networks of neurons in the brain

  • Repetition is the best way to ensure these networks form and remain

  • Memory techniques can provide short-cuts, helping you learn more efficiently

  • The best techniques for revision, based on the science of learning

  • Live in-person: £495 
    Extra shows on the same day: £145/show
    or add workshops at £95 each.  

  • Online / virtual show: £195/school

  • We will need: A screen and a microphone (if your venue is large). Handouts will be sent for printing before the event

  • Interactive, engaging and fun science show for schools

  • Perfect end of term exam prep or drop down day on study skills

  • Fabulous expert presenters with a background in brain science

  • Rave reviews from teachers, students and top science festivals


Thank you so much for coming down to do the science shows for us. Everyone had an amazing time and we would definitely love to have you back again.
