Empower2Make is volunteer team from Nova Labs, a Non-Profit Makerspace in Reston, Virginia. On September 14-16, 2018, we will host a Make-A-Thon for Assistive Technologies where teams of enthusiatic designers, innovators,entrepreneurs and individuals with special needs will converge at Nova Labs. They will form teams of “Makers” working along side “Knowers”. Together, over the course of 72 hours, the teams will develop affordable solutions to specific challenges, resulting in working prototypes. Our goal is to work with partner companies to reproduce these items and make them available to the world over, open source and free of charge..
