Storyboard Text

  • Watch Out Layla This Bug Is going To Bug Heaven
  • WAIT Don't kill the spider Mary!
  • So Mary tell us more about this spider that you learned about.
  • What is Hogwarts?
  • Well, there are two scientists Javed Ahmed, and Rajashree Khalap, who live in an India, and they recently discovered a new kind of spider.
  • Layla is asleep when she feels something on her left arm. She wakes up because the thing tickles her arm, but when she opens her eyes she screams. And her mom, dad, and big sister come running.
  • Well that sure sounds cool but what does it have to do with the nature of science?
  • What is the Scientific method?
  • I guess that the people had to design an experiment to find the information on the spider. First they asked the question, what spider is this, the made a hypothesis and designed the experiment and did more research.
  • Mary and Layla's dad explain how the spider is an arachnophobe not a bug, and that it should be taken care of peacefully, he removes his hat, gets the spider in, and puts the spider outside. When he comes back Mary says how a new spider species was found.
  • Eriovixia gryffindori. A Eriovixia gryffindori is a newly discovered spider species that was discovered by two scientists, this spider has its name because it is shaped like the "Sorting Hat" from the book series Harry Potter. The series was an interest to the scientists which is why it is named after the series. And it just so happened that the author of the series J.K. Rowling found interest in this and gave them shout out.
  • Mary Went on to tell them how this spider was named after a spider from the book series Harry Potter, and that its name was Eriovixia gryffindori. Gryffindori is based off of the name Gryffindor, a team at Hogwarts.
  • Get some rest! But just one question, why were you in the attic?
  • As Mary Explained the scientific method to her dad Layla looked up a picture of the spider on her dad's computer.
  • After finding out this information, Layla went back to her dad and sister and told them about it too so they could get in on the knowledge too.
  • To Be Continued....
