    NExT is a student-run cross grounds club that works to engage student members in a variety of technology-based activities including:

    Seminar Series

    A monthly commitment to bring faculty, research, or industry experts to our members. The seminar series enables students to learn firsthand about the current applications of novel technologies.


    In collaboration with nanoSTAR, NExT helps connect members with faculty who have research opportunities in their labs.

    Other Activities 

    NExT organizes a variety of other activities to facilitate interactions with the research and industrial communities including facility tours and other networking events.

    K-12 Outreach

    NExT engages local high school and middle school students through participation in events such as the National NanoDays Celebration.
