Every pupil in the country in Year 7 will receive a BBC Micro Bit, which is a system designed by the BBC for use in computer education.
Students in The Whitehaven Academy have already started using the micro bit.
Mike Zeller from BBC Radio Cumbria recently paid us a visit, talked to students and staff about the benefits of using the Micro Bit.
