You'll find the full schedule HERE. You'll also find links to Museums Victoria and Melbourne Museum's Insta and Twitter, so be sure to follow to be notified when the scientists go live. A 10 second science challenge will be posted every day at 12pm, and you'll find the link to check out who is taking the challenge.
