CrashCourse | Concussion Education
The North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) Board of Directors passed regulations mandating that schools require parents and students to view a concussion education video known as CrashCourse prior to each season. The video was developed by TeachAids, a 501(c)(3) non-profit leader in global education innovation, and researchers at Stanford University.
The video features former NCHSAA star, Bryce Love, a standout running back from Wake Forest High School and Stanford University, narrates and stars in the video that seeks to place viewers in the shoes of a football player in the middle of a competition.
CrashCourse aims to raise awareness of the latest science around concussions to shift the conversation away from fear and silence towards knowledge and empowerment. It features curriculum components, first in HD then Virtual Reality, including a short interactive film which puts the viewer on the field to experience a concussion, a brain fly-through using Stanford Medicine technology, a concussion symptom simulator, as well as viewpoints from top athletes to share the latest medical knowledge on the signs and symptoms of concussions.
