What we're about

Fred Works is foremost a community of makers who explore and extend their ability to create, maintain and repair the things they use.

We have tools at the space to 3D print, basic wood and metal working tools, soldering and electronic repair. We also have a laser cutter that is in repair shop but hope to have it working again soon. We have regular attending members who can help you with these projects as well as PC, Raspberry pi's and Arduinos. Linux, Windows and networking questions. We also have a few members with quad copters, 3D printers and CNC machines at their homes and can field some questoins about those as well.

Visit www.fwks.org (http://www.fwks.org/) for more information on our history and vision for the future.

We also maintain a discord chat channel for group discussions. Ask us about it at one of the meetings if your interested in joinning.

We are a 501(c).3 non-profit community based group promoting science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and do it yourself (DIY) knowledge through community education classes, public events and meetups. We also sponsor a local robotics team, Fahrenheit robotics, FRC team 6882

FredWorks Hack & Craft Night at Fredericksburg Academy

Fredericksburg Academy Upper School

This is an open to the public day, so anyone may come on this night regardless of membership to FredWorks. You want to park near this building (image below) once you find the 'campus' that is Fredericksburg Academy. There are a series of doors along the glass front as seen in the image but you will need to have someone from the inside let you in. We plan to have a wipe board near the doors with a cell phone number you can call to reach one of the members currently in the building. There is a good chance that Scott or Max are the ones there so if you already have our number you can call before you get out of your vehicle and we will meet you at the door, because it is quite frigid out these days :)
