FredWorks is a Fredericksburg Virginia Hackerspace & Makerspace. We focus on STEM outreach and have been meeting regularly at local libraries hosting an Open Hack Night on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. Our classes have been on Arduino and electronics, though we would like to host more classes of all types.

Check out our calendar of events at http://www.meetup.com/FredWorks/

As of December 2014, we signed a agreement with a local Private school to have access to one of their rooms any time the school isn't in session. This gives us access to approximately 1000 Sq Ft of space to host meetings, classes and work on projects.

We are also in talks with SchoolFactory.org to retain them as a fiscal sponsor in order to act as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit while our 501(c)(3) application is processed.

We incorporated in August of 2013 as a VA non stock corporation and plan to apply for federal 501(c)(3) non-profit status in the near future. Check out our website for more information or to contact us.
