Chinese invention-Seismograph Presentation with Storyboard

Storyboard Text

  • Do you know the invention of the new seismograph? If you do, It's great!
  • I just heard from the whole town and I'm heading to get some rice for my family near the big field.
  • Before you go, I need help advertising the seismograph. Come to see it first before we start working. If it is okay with you?
  • Of course it is. It will only take about 15 minutes to present the seismograph. The rest will be on selling based on how long you want to stay.
  • Don't worry I'll come. I'm actually early by 2 hours to pick up the rice. Is that a good amount of time?
  • Great, let's get going as soon as possible! I want to know more about it. 
  • This is the seismograph. It was invented by Zheng Heng. He invented this during the Han Dynasty (78-240 AD).
  • Great! What do the dragons and the frogs do?
  • It probably will be more advanced and for many people to use. Also, the seisomographs will probably have better magnetic sensors because we started the advancement of magnets. 
  • The dragons pop a copper ball into the frog's open mouth. The dragon can't pop a copper ball into a frog's mouth that it isn't facing. There are 8 for the 8 different directions. This uses seisms to figure out the location of the earthquake. 
  • Will this be the same in the future? Other than that, this is great!
  • Welcome to the seismograph shop. We currently have one because it is on sale and we are still manufacturing some. This can tell where an earthquake is coming and will be useful in case of danger. 
  • This will keep my family and everyone in my village safe from any dangers! Thanks!
  • It is one of the greatest advancements yet!! It uses our mascot of dragons and frogs.
  • Well, see you later. I hope we can sell some more for the better of Ancient China!!
  • Thank you for this advancement! It will be so much help!
  • Well I guess we're done for today. This was pretty fun. But I'm late I have to go!
