With an increasing demand for skilled STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) workers in Virginia, the development of efficient pathways between undergraduate students pursuing STEM degrees and industry has become an urgent need. With support from the Commonwealth of Virginia, Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC) in partnership with Virginia’s Regional Technology Councils, and in collaboration with Virginia companies, Virginia colleges, and community colleges, has created the Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP).
A video contest hosted by the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI)
Graduate students, will your research lead to nanotechnologies that impact our daily lives? Submit videos that demonstrate how your nanotechnology research will bring solutions to real-world problems. (For an example, watch this video on nanotube sponge research from Rice University.) This contest is for graduate students conducting nanotechnology research in the United States and U.S. territories.
NanoSTAR would like to invite you to our annual Undergraduate Student/Faculty Mixer on Thursday, March 26th at 5:00-7:00 pm. All professors and undergraduate students interested in nanoscale research are welcome. The reception and poster session will start at 5:00pm in Wilsdorf Hall Atrium. Posters of recent undergraduate projects will be presented followed by time for faculty members to pitch their summer research ideas at 6:00pm in the Dean’s Conference Room (Rm.200)
