CrashCourse is a newly launched concussion education program. https://teachaids.org/for-concussions/crashcourse/. It was developed by some of the top concussion researchers from all over the world and has top advisors including Scott.

1 in 5 high school athletes will get a concussion.

More than 2.5 million young people suffer a concussion in the United States each year. With proper care, most concussions can heal within 10 days, but the overwhelming majority of students, parents, and coaches are unaware of the latest science about prevention and treatment of concussions. If not treated properly, a concussion may have lasting physical, emotional, and cognitive effects.

After two years of research, six months of production, and thousands of hours of user-testing, CrashCourse provides students, parents, and coaches with the latest medical knowledge on the prevention and treatment of concussions. Seed funding for CrashCourse was generously provided by the Taube Stanford Concussion Collaborative.  https://teachaids.org/for-concussions/crashcourse/
