Computer code is Greek to me, but it's fast becoming a must-have skill. The BBC is hoping to inspire a generation of young coders with the launch of the Micro Bit, a pocket-sized computer. In October, each Year 7 pupil in the UK will be given one.
Despite measuring just 4 x 5 cm, the Micro Bit is crammed with features such as two buttons, a magnetometer and a built-in motion sensor. It could be turned into a range of gadgets from a games controller to a metal detector.
