Improving one's memory by story linkingFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis that linking a story to an item to be memorized, helps to improve  memory retention, is proven to be true. The association of a story activates several parts of the brain to help remember and recall the necessary information.

The process of memorizing is very important in helping us to recall past experiences or acquired knowledge. Students need to pack lots of information into their brains and  to recall as much as possible during an examination. Clever memory retention techniques plus a good diet and exercise, help students cope.

Also consider

To improve the reliability and accuracy of our results, a larger sample of participants should be used.

This science fair project may be repeated, this time, by using a card with 10 words and a picture with 10 objects to compare which method helps retain memory better.

Modify the science project experiment, comparing the differences between participants who read their words silently and those who speak the words out loud.
