The Full Story
What We Do
Nova Labs is so much more than just our tools. We leverage our facilities and the minds of our makers to support innovation and do good in our community. Learn more about what we do below, and click Get Involved to find out how you can contribute.
Nova Labs makes innovation accessible by offering access to prototyping tools, and a collaborative community willing to share expertise. In 2020, we opened the Innovation Center that hosts small business and entrepreneurs.
Nova Labs is a community full of makers who never stop learning. We share what we know, and learn from one another. From STEM to safety classes, arts and beyond, our schedule is consistently full of ways for children and adults to challenge themselves and stretch their minds.
Nova Labs is always looking for ways to give back. Some of our projects have included partnering with Bunks Across America to build beds for children in need, supporting Rustic Love Vienna by making gifts to raise funds for local food insecure families, and manufacture high quality, life-saving equipment for the major hospitals and first responders in the DC area during the early days of the pandemic.
Nova Lab has become a community hub for youth education in STEM. We have hosted nine award-winning FIRST Robotics teams, and created a K-12 MakerSchool, providing a unique, hands-on education curriculum, after school programs and summer camps.
