[ History ]

    NExT was formed in the Spring of 2009 by UVa undergraduate Matthew Smith (SIE 2009 & nanoSTAR Student Associate) to provide a forum for students from a wide variety of backgrounds to learn more about research and development at the cutting edge.  Although nanotechnology was a particular interest, the organization from inception was designed to look to the future- at emerging technologies.   Over the following year, the club established a regular seminar series, hosted industry speakers, and co-sponsored (with the nanoSTAR Institute) a student/faculty mixer to connect interested students with summer research opportunities.  Typically, forty to fifty students from a wide variety of majors attended the monthly seminars and approximately fifteen students participated in regular planning and business meetings.  To expand the impact of NExT, in July 2010 advisor Lisa Friedersdorf launched NextTech, a non-profit to form similar chapters at universities and junior chapters at high schools across the country and network them together.
