and Apple joined together to bring more coding education to the Magic Valley.

The program is to help the community complete a curriculum and create an application for an iPad, iPhone or Macbook. They held two recruiting sessions in Rupert on Tuesday.

Charles Buck, the associate vice president o the University of Idaho, said the app economy is growing rapidly. He said it's estimated to be at $1.3 trillion.

Participants will be guided by mentors to create their application.
