Why host this event?
As you gather your group and tune in to
the “Speaking Simply and Communicat-
ing Your Science” webinar event, you
and your fellow chapter members will
learn how to improve your communica-
tion skills. With these newfound skills,
you’ll be able to give more articulate
presentations, and also interview and
network more effectively.
In addition, because the webinar is
provided online, your chapter will be
exchanging ideas with other students
and chemistry professionals from
around the world during the live Q&A
with subject matter experts.
By hosting an event, your student
members can gain leadership skills,
explore nontraditional chemistry
careers, network with fellow students
(face-to-face and online), and reap a
wealth of extra knowledge during the
live Q&A session.
For maximum flexibility, you have
the freedom to customize the event by
including activities that interest your
group, such as offering games, trivia,
raffles, and food. Audience sizes can
range from just two people to hun-
dreds. Groups meet in a variety of loca-
tions, including restaurants, classrooms,
and even dorm rooms.
Invite the community!
The Program-in-a-Box is open to student
chapters and local sections. Consider
making the program a community
outreach event by inviting participants
from your local community, including
high school chemistry students, science
teachers, retired chemists, and the general public. This is a great opportunity
to bring your community together, on
one night, at one time, to interact with
others locally and globally. Participants
will connect with scientists and share
and learn from each other’s experiences.
Then share photos on your chapter’s
social media site and ACS Webinars site.
