In this interactive science show we introduce how memories are stored in the brain, and share tips and tricks for making the most of your memory to boost learning.


Memory Games is perfect for KS2/KS3, whereas for KS4/KS5 we explore the neuroscience of learning in more detail in our Mastering Memory science show.

  • How quickly your brain can learn new things

  • Where memories are stored in the brain

  • What Dory from Finding Nemo can tell us about our short-term memory

  • Tips and tricks you can try to help boost your learning!

  • Develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about science (KS2)

  • Working scientifically - the power of rational explanation (KS2)

  • Big ideas underpinning scientific knowledge (KS3)

  • Understanding that 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

  • Live in-person: £495
