From computers to e-books, many things have changed in education since 1989.

During American Education Week Blair Mill Elementary School in Hatboro invites the community to visit the school and observe the way students learn today through the opening of the 1989 time capsule. Artwork and hand-written school work from the 1989 capsule will be displayed along with current student projects in a contrast between the old and new ways Nov. 14. The school will be open to visitors from 9 to 11 a.m.

"I think the nice thing for [students and the community] to see are the changes in education," librarian Jennifer O'Leary said. "[Students] just love to see what's the same and what's different."

"Our hopes are that some of the students that put work into [the capsule] will come," Blair Mill Principal Nancy Doherty said. "It's neat that they can go back and see their work ... It's then and now, but always with excellence."
