CrashCourse at Stanford

Our Stanford Neurosurgical Simulation and Virtual Reality Center has partnered with TeachAids, a pioneer in developing innovative research-based health education technologies, to create new installments of a novel concussion education program CrashCourse.

Our world-class brain injury and concussion experts have collaborated with TeachAids on hundreds of hours of research, user-testing, and product development, to create state-of-the art interactive concussion educational content. CrashCourse will utilize our neurosurgery Virtual Reality models in an innovative experience called the Brain Fly-Through. This educational experience takes viewers inside a 3D representation of a real human brain to help them better understand its complexity and vulnerability. This product will be available in 2019.

Please visit the TeachAids website to view the full CrashCourse product suite. All materials are available to the public for free.

Special Feature: This CrashCourse Film (12min) features top Stanford athletes like All-American running back Bryce Love and his teammates.
