Effect of color on memoryFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis that coloring the flash cards will not help to improve memory retention, is proven to be true.

There are many books and training programs about how to improve our memory. Among the common techniques used are to repeat the words or names many times, creating a joke or funny sentence about what to remember or creating a picture in your mind about the things to remember. Also, the things we see around us are all in color. This is why looking at a picture in the natural color helps us to remember it better.

Also consider

This science fair project may be repeated, this time, using colored words instead of pictures.

Modify the science project experiment, using naturally colored photos.
