Posted by Community Relations on 11/12/2015

Central High was well represented in numbers and talent at  CODEDAY, a 24-hour competition at Gateway College, November 7-8. The 30 students teacher Stephen Andrews brought to the event, were the most of any school in Arizona, and they had the largest number of girls. In an industry where diversity is still a challenge, Central also had the largest number of minority students of any school participating in the United States. 

Of the three awards given, the all-Central team “GT OPS” won first place with “Best Game” and the mixed Central team,  “Retro Gamer” won “Best App.”  The other Central High groups that made a strong showing were "Team Phoenix" with a large combat game with all hand-drawn art, and "The Social Cabinet" who built a Linux server with MySQL, PHP and WordPress site which they made operational on the network and created their own CSS and HTML code.
