Hacksburg

Blacksburg's Workshop
Meetings Tuesday at 7:30 pm

About Us

Who are we?

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.

Hacksburg is a member of Downtown Blacksburg, Inc.

Get Involved:

  • We are located in the CRC at 1872 Pratt Drive, Suite 1620, Blacksburg, VA
  • We meet every Tuesday at 7:30 PM in our space. Feel free to come by for a tour! This meeting is open-to-the-public and followed by an open-to-the-public work session starting at the end of the meeting to whenever the last member leaves.
  • The links at the top of the page will take you to our blog, contact information, membership information, wiki, and github page. There's more info at these locations.
