TeachAids Receives 2019 Stanford Community Partnership Award
This past week, Stanford University announced TeachAids as one of three recipients of the 2019 Community Partnership Award, alongside Children’s Health Council and Future Advancers of Science and Technology. For the fifteenth year, this award recognizes organizations that have collaborated with Stanford University to create a positive impact in the community
Collaborative partnership and commitment to our community has always been the heart of TeachAids’ mission. From the initial inception of the CrashCourse Football script, to the developments of CrashCourse projects, TeachAids has worked closely with its partners and advisors at Stanford University, as well as high school students and community members throughout the Bay Area. Through an educational research course at Stanford, athletes worked with Bay Area youth to develop the storyboard for CrashCourse Football. And just this past summer, undergraduate interns helped to develop new components of the CrashCourse initiative with input and insight from a variety of individuals, including sports coaches, Stanford physicians, and high school youth.
TeachAids has more than 40 number of advisors from Stanford, and has worked with a variety of schools and tech giants in the Bay Area.

“As a local high school student, it was a thrill and incredible experience for me and some of my classmates to be able to help test the efficacy of entering a human brain via Virtual Reality in the Stanford Neurosurgical Simulation and Virtual Reality Center. I am so grateful to TeachAids for creating this amazing opportunity!” – Kayley Gould, Senior, Los Altos High School
“Over the 7 years I have volunteered with TeachAids, one of the most significant contributions of the organization has been imparting the rigor of the research based methodology for designing social interventions and problem solving to the students at Stanford… In addition, TeachAids has had a huge impact in my own personal growth by expanding my horizons on how my technical skills can be applied to solving the world’s most challenging problems.” – Aparna Khare, Speech Scientist, Amazon
We are proud to be recognized alongside the two other recipients of this prestigious award. We look forward to continued collaboration with our Bay Area community as we strive to make accessible and engaging health education materials for all.
