Our Makerspace is
Moving to Fairfax City

Nova Labs is celebrating 10 years of making by becoming first time home buyers! In early 2022, our wonderful community of makers will be opening the doors at 3850 Jermantown Road to welcome in our new neighbors.

Be the first to know about the big move by signing up for monthly progress updates!

Can't wait to see you!

Why is a makerspace in your neighborhood exciting?

SPACE TO
CREATE

As a makerspace, we offer access to equipment through membership that would otherwise be cost prohibitive, or take up too much space at home. The benefits of joining our community of makers, though, goes well beyond the sum of all our tools.

CLASSES THAT
EDUCATE

Leveraging the equipment and expertise found within our maker community, we offer youth and adult classes in STEM, project classes, tool safety and more. Most classes do not require membership.

COMMUNITY THAT
INNOVATES

Community and collaboration are at the core of our culture. We support tinkers and hobbyists, as well as professional makers, artists and entrepreneurs. That shared knowledge makes Nova Labs a breeding ground for innovation and exploration.
