Storyboard Text

  • Francis Bacon
  • Welcome to my lair! This is where I conduct my experiments using the scientific method, (which I created😉).
  • Nicolaus Copernicus
  • The sun neither sets nor rises.
  • Galileo Galilei
  • Hurraaahh! I just discovered 4 of Jupiter's moons🌛
  • Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561 in London, fostered by Sir Nicholas and Lady Anne. He married Alice Barnham in 1604. Other than science, Bacon had a political career in which he had several honorable positions such as Keeper of the Seal, Attorney General, and Lord Chancellor. He also argued science required evidence and study from the real world, unlike English men originally thought. He was later put into jail for accepting bribery, which ruined his reputation. However, he created the scientific method, so thanks to him for that.
  • Isaac Newton
  • To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.
  • To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction 
  • You need evidence!
  • Nicolaus Copernicus (Mikolaj Kopernik) was born on February 19, 1473 in Torun, Poland. His parents were Nicolaus Copernicus Sr. and Barbara Watzenrode. His family was very wealthy, but his father died when he was just 10 and he lived with his uncle, Lucas Watzenrode. Nicolaus developed a heliocentric theory. He also completed Commentariolus, (small commentary), a 40-page manuscript that summarized his heliocentric theory,  He also made the quantity theory of money. It states that money supply has a direct, equal relationship with the price.
  • The Conflict
  •     Reason vs. Faith Science vs the Church
  • Your crazy! You and your theories!
  • You have to believe!
  • Galileo Galilei was born on February 15, 1564 in Pita, Italy to Vincenzo Galilei and Giulia Ammannati. He had 3 kids with Marina Gamba who was never his wife. Galileo went to University of Pisa, but left early because it was too expensive. He built his own telescope and discovered Venus has phases like the moon. He published several books as well. After some time, he earned the name “Father of Science.” However, the remaining years of his life were spent under house arrest.
  • The World Today
  • Isaac Newton was born on January 4, 1643 in the United Kingdom. His father was Isaac Newton Sr. and his mom Hannah Ayscough. Isaac was an introvert and had few friends, but that didn’t stop him from sharing his discoveries with the world. He accomplished several things in his life such as building the first reflecting telescope, creating his law of motion and gravity, and he discovered the earth is not completely round. He also helped discover that white light has all the colors. Newton is considered to be one of the most influential scientists in history.
  • Prisms display all colors of the rainbow 🌈 
  •  There was a lot of conflict between the church and the scientists. Scientific thought was challenging the church's traditional beliefs. Some of the scientists' theories, like Galileo, went against the Bible. There was also a discrepancy because the church's teaching were based on teaching and revelation, but the people of the Scientific Revolution believed in reason, logic, and evidence. Galileo was put under house arrest and tortured , and was also excommunicated. 
  • Thanks to scientists of the Scientific Revolution, we’ve been able to make many advances in science that would have been unimaginable a few years ago. Several job opportunities have been opened due to the foundation Galileo, Newton, Bacon, Copernicus, and other scientists in the Scientific Revolution set that we have built upon. For example, now we have science teachers, astronauts, artist, engineers, chemists, and way more. There’s no doubt the Scientific Revolution has had a great impact on our world today.
