Hop aboard the Fun Kids Time Machine!

Do you want to go to the future?

We're building a time machine – a high-tech time capsule – and we're putting you inside!

On February 29th 2024, we'll lock the time capsule and leave it in the care of one of the country's leading science museums for everyone to visit.

This is your chance to tell us about your life and what you think the future might be like.


Remember to get parental or guardian permission first.

  1. Tap the red record button.
  2. Allow access to your microphone.
  3. Speak clearly. You've got 60 seconds per question.
  4. Listen back, re-record, or move on to the next question.
  5. We're interested in lots of different answers, so have a think about what might be unique to you.

Say hi and tell us your name?

What’s your life today like?

Think about what you did today, talk about your family or friends, or tell us about current events and how it makes you feel.

What do you hope the future will be like?

Think about scientific advancements and how different the world might be.

How long should we lock the time capsule for?

You’re in charge! We’ll take the average of everyone’s entries and seal the capsule for that long. Enter a number (in years) between 1 and 150!
