An educational visit to Road to Zero at the Melbourne Museum comprises two experiences:
- Curriculum-linked programs in the purpose-built Learning Studio.
- An immersive and exploratory Experience Space showcasing the latest multi-sensory interactive technologies.
Students respond to the Road to Zero exhibition content by creating a collaborative health campaign video. The program begins with a facilitated introduction covering the key features of successful behaviour change campaigns. In small groups, students use a range of information sources to research and reflect on road safety behaviours of 14 -17-year-old road user groups (either pedestrians or cyclists). Students then apply their findings to create a brief video campaign that reinforces positive road use among their peers.
The Road to Zero Experience Space allows students to explore a range of interactive exhibits at their own pace. A Zero card enables students to interact with the exhibits and record their experiences.
As students discover the principles of Towards Zero, they’re encouraged to consider a future free of death and serious injury on our roads, and how we might achieve this.
