Memory is something everybody possess, we wanted to learn more about how it develops as a human grows older. To do that, we examined what children at the age 10-11 and adults at the age 30-50 can remember and retell from a 5.55 minutes long, pre recorded story. How much do they remember and what kind of information is prioritized? Does it differ between the age categories? Our results indicate that adults remember about 30% of a story, and children 15%. Most easily remembered are relatable things and situations. The kind of information the different age categories remember is similar.
