Abi Wheatley, a student at Cowplain Community School, bets that hover cars are on the cards in the next 50 years.
The 12-year-old’s prophecy will be preserved in the capsule, which was sealed by HRH The Princess Royal.
Abi said: ‘Hover cars would be a good idea because there are lots of accidents in cars and this would make the roads clearer. The hover cars may travel in vertical layers to reduce congestion.’

Abi, from Cowplain, has also predicted that there will be cures for all illnesses in the not-so-distant future.
It’s a hope close to her heart as her younger brother, Kyle, was diagnosed with leukaemia at the age of three. He is thankfully now in remission.
Abi added: ‘I hope that there are cures for every disability and disease so everyone can leave their house and take part in the same activities. If nobody had a disability or illness, life would be fairer for everybody and nobody would be disadvantaged.’
Submissions by Abi, alongside other schoolchildren in the UK, were placed in the time capsule to mark the official reopening of Savoy Place, the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s global engineering hub in London.
Jeremy Watson, president of IET, said: ‘Engineering and technology is all around us – it’s at the heart of almost everything we do and this is an extraordinary and exciting time for our profession.
‘However, if we want engineering to continue to keep advancing society and economic growth, we need to inspire the next generation.’
