What Are Badges?

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.

Earn badges by first completing associated online learning components followed by in-person Badge Training.

The first badge you should complete is WS Workshop Safety Badge.

Our Vision

It is the Makerspace’s goal to give every student a hands-on making experience.

We want to encourage students to experience and learn new technologies, and use this knowledge to tinker, prototype and fabricate their ideas.

Let our technicians guide you through a mix of curated and created tutorials on a range of different topics from Arduino programming to mold and model making, from metal machining to drafting!
