KeyBank donated $250,000 to the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering for a new community nanotechnology education program called NEXSTEP.
NEXSTEP stands for Nanotechnology Explorations for Science, Training and Education Promotion.
The program will educate high school students as well as business and government leaders to give them a better understanding of nanotechnology, the technology that computer chip companies use to make their chips smaller and more powerful.
The announcement was made this morning at the college's Albany NanoTech complex on Fuller Road in Albany.
