TechShop DC-Arlington is made possible by a continued partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs Center for Innovation (VACI) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). We are a community-based workshop and prototyping studio on a mission to democratize access to the tools of innovation. This brand new TechShop location will be packed with cutting-edge tools, equipment, and computers loaded with design software featuring the Autodesk Design Suite. Most importantly, TechShop offers the space to make, and the support and camaraderie of a community of makers.
