Design Students! Compete in the Tech to Protect Challenge!
The Tech to Protect Challenge is a national open innovation contest designed to help emergency responders—including EMS, firefighters, and police—accomplish their mission to serve and protect our communities nationwide.
The San Francisco Tech to Protect Challenge at SF State is being held on November 1 – 3 and is one of ten in-person coding contests inviting participants to create technology solutions that will aid emergency responders in serving and protecting communities across the country.
