3-2-1 Blast Off! CDC’s Injury Center has developed a mobile game app on concussion safety for children aged 6 to 8. Through a futuristic world of galactic racing adventures, children can learn the benefits of playing it safe and smart!
The app aims to teach children:
- Hitting your head can cause a brain injury, called a concussion.
- You should tell your coach, parent, or another adult if you hit your head.
- You should see a doctor if your brain is hurt, and rest before returning to play.
(The app is currently only available in the Apple App Store. An Android version of the app is coming soon.)
