Question: If you had any money left over from the £500, what would you use it for and why?

  1. I would use the money to develop a program to teach children about working memory – that is the ability to hold information in mind and manipulate. In our previous research, we found that working memory is very important in school. We already have a program to inform teachers about ways to make learning easier for children who struggle with working memory. But so far, there is no program to teach kids. We would develop a lesson that we can take to schools. We would also put together a website so that anyone can get this information for free. I don’t think that the prize money will cover all of this, but we will use it towards this goal and further support it with our own funds. So, I don’t expect that there would be any money left over.



  1. thank you!
