Our new makerspace is going to be bigger and better, with more great programs and access to tools than we've ever been able to offer before, but we need your help getting there. 

Everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts. With your help, our makerspace community can continue to grow and expand in our new Fairfax location.

3850 Jermantown Road Fairfax, VA 22030

Visit us at our NEW location!


more than a community makerspace

Nova Labs is a multifunctional space enabling the maker community to learn, create and collaborate. Our makerspace allows our member community to access resources, tools, advanced machining and technology equipment to craft, make, prototype and fabricate. Join today and rediscover the joy of making.


It is the ultimate workspace for the hobbyist, tinkerer, engineer, artesan and entrepreneur to create and collaborate with others.

Mask Optional

As of March 1, 2022


Based on updated guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Fairfax County Health Department, masks are recommended but not required in Nova Labs spaces for individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

  • Vaccinated individuals may wear masks in Nova Labs spaces if they choose to do so.

  • Unvaccinated or at-risk individuals should wear masks at all times while in NL spaces.

  • Instructors may require masks as part of the safety equipment (i.e., PPE) required for their event.

  • If you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID or generally feeling ill, please refrain from entering NL spaces and observe the quarantine guidelines recommended by the CDC.


If you have any symptoms of illness, please do not come in to the Lab. Nova Labs will be continually re-evaluating and updating this guidance as conditions evolve.
