Helena Fifth Graders From 1995 Accurately Predicted What The Internet Would Become [VIDEO]
Back in 1995, fifth grade students at Ray Bjork school in Helena, MT shot a PSA celebrating the many virtues of the internet, which was just starting to go mainstream at the time. These clever kids also talk about what they think the internet will be like by the time they get to college. “It will be like our telephone,” one student accurately predicts.
The class carries on with their spot-on predictions about the future internet by mentioning its ability to help you shop, get your sports scores and gather information from around the world. One girl holding a cat adds, “I even found a recipe for cat food cupcakes.” These smart Montana kids knew back then that the internet would eventually become a giant hub for knowledge and nonsense…I think they nailed it! Btw, the spot went on to win a local ADDY Award in 1996 for Best PSA.
