The NOVA Fab Lab, located at Northern Virginia Community College, is hosting a virtual Design Challenge! In the past year, manufacturers have often sold out of typical fun products like video games, building blocks, and jigsaw puzzles. In the absence of consumables, people have utilized their own creativity to invent new products for personal and family entertainment. THE CHALLENGE is to invent and design a product which transforms typical household items or materials into a toy or game.

The Challenge is open to middle school, high school, and college students with entries being accepted from February 15 until April 15. Grand prize winner will receive a 3D Printer, design software, and fabrication of their product! For more details, visit
