YCC: Program-in-a-Box was a Success

Posted by David Gottfried on March 30, 2017 at 1:50 PM

The Program-in-a-Box event focused on the Chemistry of Sports. This ACS Webinar had interesting interviews with materials chemists working on wearable and smart materials used to measure physiological data, and materials which respond to stress and strain in different ways. Another portion of the webinar focused on analytical methods for testing athletes for performance enhancing drugs. We had about 15 people show up for this event, complete with raffle of some ACS swag. We believe the event was a success, as we had undergraduate and graduate students and young professionals in attendance.

2017 Theme

The Georgia Local Section of the ACS has selected the theme, A Year of Giving: Catalyzing Chemistry via Community, for its 2017 programming. A Year of Giving refers to the outreach and education of technical and non-technical audiences about the importance of chemists and chemistry via the coupling of commonplace and technical chemistry ideas. We hope you will join and support us in this critical mission.
