Road to Zero is a world first road safety education complex opening mid-2018, and is a collaboration between Museums Victoria and the TAC.

Road to Zero draws upon decades of TAC research and pedagogical practice, and is co-created with practicing teachers. Part of the Victorian Government’s Towards Zero vision, it aims to reduce road trauma in pre-learner drivers by building knowledge and awareness that will empower young road users to make safe decisions.

An education visit to Road to Zero comprises two experiences: an immersive and exploratory gallery showcasing the latest in multi-sensory interactive technologies, and a curriculum-linked program in the purpose-built studio space.

Launching with health and physics programs for years 9 and 10, bookings for Road to Zero for school groups will open on 1 December for 2019.
