At UNSW we define Makerspace as a place for barrier free access to tools and technology where people can come together to learn, build, upskill and share.
UNSW is creating the largest network of connected Makerspaces and workshops in Australia. A network of genuine collaboration and shared values.
These values are centered on the principle of barrier free access to tools and tech for all Students, Staff and External Partners.
