Summary: First GrAID is a digital platform where children can learn about health and safety in a gamified manner that is both fun for them and convenient for their parents. It aims to address the fact that the leading cause of death for children aged 1-14 is unintentional / preventable injuries, with the average household incurring up to $10k a year in associated medical costs. Despite the recent rise of digital learning, no interactive learning tool exists to teach children basic health and safety habits. Our goal is to engage children and help them develop healthy habits through adolescence.
