Project Title: Noise Pollution or Productivity? Investigating the Effects of Sound on Concentration

Have you ever wondered if different sounds could improve concentration? In my project, I studied the effects of white, pink, and brown noise on concentration in a school environment. I had 150 participants complete memory and language tests with and without the different sounds. After analyzing the results showed that listening to those types of noises significantly improved concentration and memory, especially with white noise. Through this project, I aim to demonstrate the importance of sound as a tool for enhancing performance and retaining information in a simple, yet effective manner.
