Featured Maker: High Power Rocketry Team at Thomas Jefferson HSST




High school students from Thomas Jefferson HSST are working to eject an unmanned aerial vehicle from their high power rocket. The students are also doing research with reconnaissance and will be putting a video recorder and a live camera on their unmanned aerial vehicle. This is a continuation of the project students began last year through the NASA Student Launch Initiative.

Please feel free to try out the stomp rockets at our booth!


Parking Arrangements for the NoVA Maker Faire

There is no parking at the site unless you have a handicap sticker.

We’ve made a special arrangement with Fairfax Connector to provide FREE shuttle buses every 10 minutes, starting at 10:30AM from the Herndon-Monroe Park & Ride (free covered parking there too).

A restoration project in the works to make a cool looking vintage Hot Rod MakerTruck that will travel to schools with MakerStuff to show kids about STEAM education/MakerStuff in person.
