Time Capsule


Francisco Park Time Capsule

Francisco Park is opening this summer and we are looking for input to celebrate and acknowledge this unprecedented time.  Francisco Park invites you and your students to be a part of history by sharing reflections on life over the past year. Selected submissions will be placed in a time capsule, dedicated summer 2021, and reopened 50 years later in 2071.  Imagine the excitement of your students sharing with their children and grandchildren what life was like during this unprecedented time! 

Below please find the instructions and tools to participate.  We want this to be a fun, and (hopefully) easy project that you can do with your students.  The website  

(https://franciscopark.org/time-capsule/  )

should be self-explanatory, but in addition, please find a general summary and instructions below.  In the event you have any questions, please submit them to timecapsule@franciscopark.org .  Submissions will be subject to the provisions on the FPC website.
