Innovation &
Business Development

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.

Education

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.

Community Service

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.

Youth Programs

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.
