Storyboard Text

  • By: Sophia Amaral & Holly Miller
  • I am about to enter the castle (vagina) but I must be careful, for there are knights  (deadly acids) protecting the Queen (vagina) from invaders (pathogens), such as I.
  • I am now in the castle (vagina) and I am making my way up the stairs (cervical canal) to enter the door (cervix) to the ballroom (uterus).
  • I am now in the ballroom (uterus) and I must decide which door (Uterotubal Junction) I want to enter (Fallopian tube).  One door holds the gold (egg) I desire. The other holds nothing and leads me to my death. 
  • Oh no!  There is a monster (White Blood Cells/ Leukocytes) protecting the gold (egg)!  I must reach the door (Uterotubal Junction) before it's too late!
  • I am now safe from the monster (WBC/Leukocytes) and in the room where the gold is located (Fallopian Tube)! Not many people make it this far in the castle (10-30 sperm remain).  Once I find the gold I take as much of it as I can (Fertilization).
  • I travel back to my home (uterus) and I place the gold (egg) inside my house (the uterine lining/ implantation).  This is the final step of the my journey (Journey of the Sperm)
