Hacksburg is Blacksburg's first makerspace. Started in 2014, we're a community workshop focused on enabling members of the Blacksburg community to complete projects that would otherwise be out of reach. Whether you need equipment, mentorship, or just some help, Hacksburg is meant to be a useful resource for building anything from rockets to robots to rocking chairs.
Our space is located in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center, and we wouldn't exist in our current form without their support.
Hacksburg is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
