Information Technology Department of Paradise High School organizes one of the most promising design contest named ‘Pixel Puzzle Digital Contest’ annually. Pixel Puzzle offers an opportunity to the students at different level to illustrate the kind of creativity that students bring to the planning and design process. The disciplinary solution requires students to follow a planning process from the start to completion of the project, with thorough documentation. In addition, it provides all students the chance to reveal their inner talent on designing.  

2nd Pixel Puzzle contest took place in 5th week of term two.  In competition, open to all grades, students designed a poster on a given topic. The students submitted their project to a jury for review.
