SF Tech investing in SF Schools

Zendesk recently partnered with the SF DA Women's Committee to sponsor a video contest to increase awareness about bullying and solicited submissions from SF middle and high school students in San Francisco.  The goal of the contest was to increase public awareness about bullying amongst students, encourage youth to discuss bullying more openly and develop effective responses to bullying.  

A total of 58 videos were received from students all over the city and from schools including; Lincoln High School, Visitacion Valley Middle School, Rooftop Elementary School, Francisco Middle School, Everett Middle School, Washington High School, Mission High School, St. Ignacius High School and Lick Wilmerding High School.  Full press release here.

I'm intrigued by the potential of the technology companies in San Francisco to partner and support schools in SF.  SF is becoming a growing home base for tech companies (Google, Twitter, Salesforce, Zendesk, Dropbox, Yelp).  

What other examples of tech investment in SF schools have you witnessed at your school or within your community?
