Scienceworks Museum

Scienceworks Museum - SpotswoodAs part of the sponsorship of the VMSVC the Scienceworks Museum in Spotswood provides the primary venue for the challenge event every year.

Scienceworks is bursting with things to challenge curious minds of all ages. In just one visit, you can stroll among the gigantic machines that kept the city running, enjoy electrifying theatre in the Lightning Room, let your little ones roam safely in enclosed spaces, wander through our immersive exhibitions and drop into deep space in the Melbourne Planetarium.

The nearest metro train station is Spotwood (on the Werribee and Williamstown Lines), some 10 minutes walk away down Hudson Street.  The other option is to take the Ferry from Southbank near the city to the scienceworks landing, about 35 minutes, and enjoy the sights and atmosphere from the water as you cruise down the Yarra river and past the port of Melbourne and under the Westgate bridge.

The VMSVC event for 2016 is scheduled for the 15th and 16th of October.  The plan view of the arena shows where the event will be staged, click for a larger image.
