- Greenville [A sustainability game]
Think running an eco-friendly community is easy? GREENVILLE lets players take a fictional community a test drive, managing resources, shelter, and population over time. The primary goal of the game is to keep Greenville's population healthy and happy for one fictional year. As the population grows, so does the demand for shelter and resources. Players must collect resources such as Food, Water, and Energy from the area around Greenville. These resources are used to build and upgrade structures in Greenville such as a Town Hall, Housing Co-Op, or Water Filtration Plant. Resources can also be traded at the Market and spent on helpful Advisory Groups such as a Volunteer workforce, Arts Council, or Farmers Union.

Dow collaborated with The Keystone Center for Education to develop The Balanced Equation curriculum, which is designed to help teach students about global sustainability and the role chemistry can play in developing long-lasting solutions.

The Balanced Equation curriculum uses a hands-on inquiry-based approach that integrates science, math, language arts and social studies education and skills in ten lesson plans. The curriculum aligns with national education standards for these academic areas.
