Is it: 


Louis Pasteur...

>> RACHEL: Ada Lovelace...


[COMPUTER BEEPS]


>> RACHEL: Or Isaac Newton?


[FALLING SOUND]


>> RACHEL: To figure it out, let’s learn more about these science smarties. But first, switch to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush the molars in the way back.

[MUSIC BEGINS]


>> RACHEL: First up: Louis Pasteur. Louis Pasteur was BIOLOGIST. BIOLOGISTS study living things, like animals and plants…


 [FROG CROAK]


>> RACHEL: and Pasteur's favorite living things to study were tiny BACTERIA. 


So do you think it was Louis Pasteur the person who made milk safer to drink?

 

Or was it ADA LOVELACE? 


[COMPUTER BEEPS]



>> RACHEL: Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>> RACHEL: -and brush your front teeth too. 


Lovelace was a brilliant mathematician. Mathematicians are people who study MATH, and Lovelace is famous for her ALGORITHMS. 


ALGORITHMS tell computers what to do.


[COMPUTER BEEPS] 


>> RACHEL: Lovelace was one of the first people to make an ALGORITHM for a computer.


So did ADA LOVELACE make milk safer to drink? Or was it Isaac Newton? 


Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and give your tongue a brush too.

Newton was a famous physicist that means he studied the way things move: everything from big things, like planets, to small things, like an apple falling from a tree. 


[SLIDE WHISTLE DOWN]
