How sharp is your brain speed? Put it to the test by saving the planet’s cows from abduction! (Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4)

By Request

Daily we react to everyone and everything around us without stopping to think -thanks to our brain skills. Immerse yourself in a video game to learn about it and test yours to save the planet’s cows!


Everyday our brain makes tonnes of reactions and judgements from information. This helps us to survive and interact appropriately with other people and our environment. This is mainly thanks to a fundamental set of brain skills called “cognitive skills” or “brain skills”.

Dr Amal Dameer is a doctor and scientist who uses cognitive tests to see why someone is not reacting very well to the everyday world. In this interactive workshop, students will learn about cognition, cognitive tests and what affects them by playing a fun and immersive game, where they get to save cows and/or haystacks that aliens are stealing from farms.

Anonymously collected student’s scores and reaction time data will be collected which will be graphed and used to discuss their reaction time and what could have influenced reaction times. This will enable them to interpret data scientifically and apply it to the real world!
