Nova Labs Holding Maker Space Open House

GreenBay at NoVa Maker Labs

Nova Labs, the Reston-based maker space, is holding an open house for its new “low-impact workspace.”

Nova Labs is opening GreenBay, a section of the shop that will house green, low-impact tools and a stand-up classroom for hands-on shop classes.

The free open house is Monday, Oct. 12 (Columbus Day holiday) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

There will be food and beverages, open house hours, shop tours, woodworking demonstrations, and more. Tools with a green safety rating are available to anyone who completes the New Member Orientation class, which is open to all.

Nova Labs is a membership-based work space with a 10,500-square-foot facility at 1916 Isaac Newton Square. The space has classrooms, workspace, incubator offices and a shop that includes both common tools and advanced fabrication equipment.

Members enjoy 24-7 access and help teach classes, maintain equipment, and promote making in the community.  Nova Labs offers classes in programming and engineering fundamentals; building and using devices such as 3D printers, drones, laser cutters, and robots; and fundamental engineering and prototyping skills such as wood working and carbon fiber mold making.

They also sponsor the NoVa Mini Maker Faire held in Reston in the spring.
