Why do we need the metric system?

Storyboard Text

  • When I grow up, I want to be a scientist?
  • Cool! Although, you can't be a scientistwithout knowing how to use the metric system.
  • Why do I need that? I just want to conduct cool experiments.
  • How do you think you will conduct those experiments?With air? Let me explain!
  • What is he talking about?
  • Say you have this test tube of liquid. What would be your way of measuring it?
  • I'll just measure it like everyone else does.
  • Well, if you are a scientist you must use the same measurements as they do!
  • Makes sense!
  • The universal measurement in science is the metric system. If your measurements were written in a different system then it would be impossible to share research with the world. You would have to convert everything you recorded to the metric system.
  • I get it! It basically allows all scientists around the world to be exact. It is also easy to use and bridges information together. I guess I do need it!
  • My work here is done!
