CrashCourse at Stanford

We've partnered with TeachAids, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, to create the first global education software for sports head injury prevention. Following the success of its HIV education software, TeachAids is now working with our world-class brain injury and concussion experts, and our Neurosurgical Simulation & Virtual Reality Center staff, to create CrashCourse - a new education initiative that uses a comprehensive, evidence-based approach, to develop a software that addresses the multiple factors that contribute to concussions in youth. By incorporating Stanford neurosurgery virtual reality models, CrashCourse helps learners empathize with the complexity of the brain in an engaging manner. The virtual reality brain "fly-through" showcases a real human brain for visualizing and understanding the implications of brain injuries. Understanding how to optomize brain performance will give kids the competitive advantage they need to elevate their game.
