The 1st Special Operations Wing partnered with the Hsu Educational Foundation in June 2020 to create the FieldWerx Makerspace to offer STEM-based opportunities to Airmen and youth in the local community.

The FieldWerx Makerspace is a location for individuals to streamline processes through development, research, prototyping, testing, and sustainability initiatives.

Airmen now have access to innovative equipment and spaces such as an area for drones, a woodshop and a room to work on car engines. They also have the opportunity to mentor and teach children in the local community about various subjects such as robotics, woodworking and computer programming.
