TAC CEO Joe Calafiore told Neil the centre will open in time for term four for school students.

“This has been coming for many years,” Mr Calafiore said.

“It is tech-heavy but I really am confident that this is the way we can engage young people in physics, in vehicle technology, in a really interesting and interactive way.”

Neil spoke with Gordon White, General Manager of Melbourne Museum, where the new TAC centre is located, about when it’ll be open to the public and how it works.

“We think there will be about 25-35,000 students through in the first year,” Mr White said.
