Green chem. can strongly attract students to chem. We, therefore, developed a green chem. educational game that motivates students at the undergraduate and advanced high school levels to consider green chem. and sustainability concerns as they design a hypothetical, chem. product. The game is intended for incorporation into any chem. course for majors and non-majors that teaches sustainability and/or the Principles of Green Chem. at the undergraduate level. The game is free of charge and encourages students to think like professional chem. designers and to develop a chem. product with respect to function and improved human and environmental health. This computer simulation has been assessed by educators and can be seamlessly integrated into an existing curriculum.
