The BBC Gives Computer Hacking Kits To 1 Million U.K. School Kids

"We are trying to show kids that hacking and coding can be as much fun as picking up a paint brush."

The BBC Microbit, a hacking device for kids, finally made it into U.K. schools last week. The BBC is giving away 1 million kits to school kids, free, one for every 11- and 12-year-old in the land.
The basic Microbit is a pocket-sized computer circuit board, with USB, Bluetooth, accelerometer, temperature and moisture sensors.
