Makerschool students will experience a diverse, hands-on educational journey. We believe all children are makers and we believe makers are people who collaborate with others, have the courage to try new things, communicate their ideas, and create a better world around them. In addition to core academic subjects our pods offer students everyday opportunities to explore, ask questions, and create solutions.  

Woodworking with Patrick Waters

The Nova Labs Workforce Development Program focuses on developing the skill sets most needed by manufacturing, trade, and technical careers in today’s economy.  This live and in-person program teaches students safe work practices and quality craftsmanship while students learn to develop and read technical drawings, create a portfolio of their work, and write resumes.  Students will get a foundational experience in using CAD and CAM software to design projects while simultaneously learning woodworking, metalworking, laser cutting, and CNC disciplines, thus allowing them to explore careers in a variety of industries.  Get connected to the largest group of makers, craftspeople, and industry professionals in Northern Virginia!

Woodworking is designed to teach students intermediate woodworking skills and knowledge in preparation for launch into the real-world.
