UNSW Making


Badges give you the flexibility to access multiple Makerspaces in our Network.

To gain access to the UNSW Makerspace Network users need to earn access Badges. Badging is how we ensure UNSW Making users have the skills to safely and efficiently use our network of materials, machines and spaces.

Remember that you will need to complete pre-requisite online learning components before you are able to book into a Badge Training session.
