As part of Endeavour, you might find yourself designing, building and creating elements of your project. The Telstra Creator Space is a fabrication lab where you’ll have access to equipment, parts and staff to help you.
You’ll have access to training and inductions so you’ll know how to use the equipment and tools but it’ll be up to you to make the most of the space to build your Endeavour project.
