Phoenix Coding Academy students took home two awards at Code Day Phoenix, Nov. 11-12 at the University of Advancing Technology, for Best App, and Best Teamwork.

This was a 24-hour event and approximately 100 competitors from around the state worked in teams to plan, research, design, and code either an app or computer game using any software or programming language.

There were 22 students from Coding Academy, and five from Carl Hayden Community High School.

“The kids were terrific, and really represented our schools and district in a positive light.  Several 8th graders competing were very excited about enrolling in the district after talking with our kids,” Network Design teacher Stephen Andrews said.
