The Metro Tunnel Education Program
Ideas, opportunities and materials for getting your students engaged in learning more about Victoria's biggest ever public transport project.
The Education Program at Metro Tunnel HQ
A free session at Metro Tunnel HQ is a fantastic way for your students to learn more about the Metro Tunnel Project.
Activities in our classroom space are designed for groups of either primary or secondary school students, targeting careers discovery and STEAM skills.
Mini Melbourne is a world-first resource brought to life for the Metro Tunnel Education Program. In partnership with the Victorian Department of Education and Training, we have created 600,000m2 of Melbourne’s city centre in Minecraft.
Any Minecraft user can download Mini Melbourne for free and start exploring.
The Minecraft: Education Edition version of Mini Melbourne hosts a range of classroom activities, including Metro Tunnel Archaeology Adventure, a multiplayer experience based on excavations at historically significant sites that were cleared as part of early works for the Metro Tunnel Project.
In 2017 we invited all Victorians to get involved in the once-in-a-generation opportunity to name the Metro Tunnel's new underground stations, but did we get it right?
The Naming our Station brochure (PDF, 782.6 KB) tells the story behind the naming of the five stations. Use it with either the Primary of Secondary School Activity to get your class thinking about "What's in a name?".
