Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., invites students from the 4th Congressional District to participate in an App Challenge for Code Day from 6-7:30 p.m. Aug. 29 at Altona Middle School, 4600 Clover Basin Drive in Longmont.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about coding from experts, even getting to practice writing their own code. Buck and others will speak on the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education.

Introduced in 2013, the Congressional App Challenge is a national program that teaches computer science and programming using hands-on experience.
