Presenter: Merry Christmas! Yes, it's not yet Christmas and my calendar is right. I am greeting you this soon in remembrance of Ida Forbes' (wear the Laboratory gown, gloves and goggles as you mention the name) invention which was patented on December 25, 1917.

Presenter: Imagine yourself during a cold season (cuddle yourself) with nothing to eat (touch your stomach) and drink something hot. Suppose you run out of LPG or coal and the only thing you have as a source of energy is electricity, what will you do?

Presenter: No need to worry my friend. Thanks to Ida Forbes for inventing the Electrical Water Heater (as you say the name of the appliance, show it with enthusiasm).

Presenter: Now you can prepare your favourite milk and chocolate combo, your mother's special coffee, your brother's much-loved chicken noodles and your father's easy-cook oatmeal. (Click the powerpoint presentation slide as you mention each use of Electrical Water Heater). For more information, present the other uses of this heater.

Presenter: This is very useful, isn't it? Thus, are you curious on how this amazing tool was made? Let's take a look at this. (Show the powerpoint presentation that shows the procedure and parts of the electrical water heater. Check this link for more details, www.google.com/patents/US125120.)


Presenter: So that's about the Electrical Water Heater. It's your turn to taste (as you say "to taste" offer a glass of chocolate drinks to the audience to make your presentation interactive or gain audience impact) the chocolate drinks made with the use of this device.

Presenter: This is (state your name), your Little Ida Forbes, the Electrical Water Heater inventor. Thank you.
