HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Tuesday some Hawaii students videotaped messages that will be viewed when they're senior citizens. It's all part of a time capsule project marking the 150th anniversary of the Queen's Medical Center.

A dozen children from Royal School shared their thoughts about the future. They talked about some of the technology that might exist when the capsule is opened 50 years from now.

"The teachers would have for like white boards and stuff, they would use their fingers and touch the board and stuff instead of having to use pens" said Emma Auncion, a fourth grader at Royal School.

"The Queen's Medical Center was founded by King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, who actually attended Royal School, which was formerly known as the Chief's Children's School" said Diane Paloma of Queens Medical Center.

A DVD of the students' ideas will be put in the time capsule along with other documents and artifacts.
