This past weekend four Phoenix Union schools, Camelback, Carl Hayden,  Central and Metro Tech participated in the 2016 Arizona 24 Hours of Code at the University of Advancing Technology. For 24 hours against approximately 250 competitors from around the state they worked in teams and implemented 21st century skills such as design thinking, research, development and coding in several computer languages. Students hacked, created and coded apps, websites and games to create their final products. The event ended with the teams "pitching" their ideas to a panel of industry experts and educators. Camelback placed top overall for their game Brain Train. The team was made up of Anthony Ethelbah, Keifhon Kowalski, Joshua Vega, Jonathan Vega, Fernando Mata, Alejandro Mata, Noel Sheets, Jennifer Beltran, Jarad Jones, Cheyanne Jones, and Andre Hernandez.
