Storyboard Text

  • On this beautiful day, Zacharias Janssen was born in 1580 in Windmills,Holland.
  • Good job Zacharias! At age 10, you created the first microscope which will inspire many other scientists like Galileo!
  • Thank you Father!
  • As a child, I broke many laws and was often chased by authorities.
  • You get back here, Zacharias!
  • At age 30 I apprenticed a spectacle maker, which soon became my profession.
  • Nice work young man!
  • People started to believe that I didn't invent the microscope because my neighbor was known to be the co-inventor of it.
  • No one believed me due to my past behavior of breaking laws and lying so I quit optics and counterfeited coins.
