Heimerman time capsule contents revealed!

Jan 19, 2017

On Thursday, Jan. 5, construction workers began to remove the dedication plaque from the Heimerman Science Center, which will be replaced by the Bishop Gerber Science Center. A cylindrical object appeared behind the plaque and was believed to be a time capsule. When the object was fully removed from the wall on Jan. 6, it was confirmed to be a time capsule – although no member of the current Newman community knew anything about a time capsule being placed there. Speculation and excitement grew within people at Newman as to what the capsule might contain, as it would have dated back to 1966 when the Heimerman Science Building was completed.

On Jan. 9, as part of a celebration for reaching the fundraising goal for the Facing Forward campaign and a “Topping-Off” ceremony for the new science center, Newman President Noreen M. Carrocci, Ph.D. opened the contents of the capsule in front of a large crowd. Below are some of the contents contained within the capsule:
