ACS Program-in-a-Box™ is a simple and cost-effective way to engage your student chapter or local section members. Subject matter experts provide stimulating science discussions matched with activities that demonstrate how chemistry is applied in everyday life. Hosting an event is easy because it’s all in the box!
Join us for a special broadcast as we explain what makes these compounds so addictive, the treatments and medications that are being used to help those who suffer, and profile the work that chemists are doing to make prescription pain killers safer and harder to abuse. Gather a group and interact with our expert panel of medical experts, policymakers, and chemists to discover why this problem has become so widespread and how the power of chemistry can be used to fight the rising tide of addiction.
ACS Program-in-a-Box™ is an exclusive benefit for ACS Local Sections, Technical Divisions, and Student Chapters. Due to international shipping restrictions, physical box kits can only be sent to the United States, Canada, and U.S. territories. Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to receive an ACS Program-in-a-Box™ from outside these shipping locations.
Not an ACS Local Section, Technical Division, or Student Chapter? That’s okay! We want chemists to join the party and connect with each other. We’ll send you a “digital box” to download handouts included in the physical box for you to print and share with your attendees. We can also help you use ACS Program-in-a-Box™ to start your Student Chapter, or get your Local Section or Student Chapter back into an active status, so next time you’ll see an ACS Program-in-a-Box™ on your doorstep!"
It’s Not Just a Broadcast. It’s a Conversation.
Check out these recaps from our previous events to see how Program-in-a-Box can help your members connect to people in the room and online.
Bringing Your Members Together on Your Schedule.

“It’s a great event for us, and a fantastic way to help our members feel connected to their university community and to ACS as a whole…The fact that the entire event is essentially sent to us, pre-made, in a box makes the event very low maintenance. Because of this, we are able to focus more locally on promotion, acquiring food, and reserving space. This is where the focus is most important and the box concept frees us up to be able to do this.”
