Storyboard Text

  • Hi Brandon, I see you broke your arm?
  • Doctor's Office
  • Yes Doc,  I don't understand how it  broke so easily?
  • Well, under your skin is your skeleton.  The skeleton is made of bones.  The bones contain  Calcium and Silicon.
  • Silicon? What is that?
  • Silicon is a element found on the periodic table.    - with a atomic number of 14,   - atomic symbol of Si and - has 14 Protons, Electrons, and Neutrons.
  • Hey, we learned about that in Science class. Silicon was discovered in 1824,  by Jons Jacob Berzelius.
  • That's right. Also, Silicon can be found everywhere in the universe, but not found by itself in nature.
  • In class we also learned, Silicon is a solid hard metallic with a dark gray color, has a melting point of 1417c, a boiling point of 2600c, and is a semi-conductor.
  • That's right!! 
  • Since you have low levels of calcium and silicon in your body, your skeleton is not strong and healthy. So that's the reason why  your arm broke so easily.  You need to drink more milk. 
  • Ok, I like milk. Thanks Doc!
