Regional In-School Program
Road to Zero offers a free in-school program for rural and regional secondary schools
What is the Road to Zero Regional In-School Program?
The Road to Zero Regional In-School Program is a new pop-up exhibition and curriculum-linked education program based on the world-first Road to Zero experience at Melbourne Museum.
The free program is designed for students studying Science, Health & Physical Education (Year 9 and 10) or VCAL.
The Road to Zero Regional In-School Program engages students through immersive digital technology to learn about road safety issues and consider how they can contribute to achieving the vision of zero lives lost on our roads.
About the program
Replicating the program offered at Melbourne Museum, the In-School Program includes an immersive exhibition, followed by a curriculum-based education program (either Health & PE or Science).
Trained Road to Zero facilitators set up the exhibition in a suitable space at the school (e.g. large classroom, multipurpose room or gym). In small groups, students rotate between eight digital stations, which include virtual and augmented reality activities.
Program sessions cater for approximately 30 students and run for up to 120 minutes (usually a double lesson), allowing for up to three sessions to be run during a school day.
Who is eligible for the program?
The Road to Zero Regional In-School Program caters for Victorian secondary school students who can’t easily attend the experience at Melbourne Museum due to distance (more than two hours’ drive from Melbourne).
Visits are scheduled by geographic location to maximise opportunities for all schools to participate and to make the best use of resources.

Pre- and post-visit resources
Teachers can access free pre- and post-visit resources that align with the Victorian curriculum. The activities allow students to gain knowledge about road safety before the visit, and expand their learning after the program.
