Students will be learning to code in schools from as young as 5, in the latest curriculum shake-up to hit the UK.
Education secretary Michael Gove's spangly new agenda for schools will see primary school children ditching word-processor training in favour of the creation and testing of computer programs, the Guardian reports.
Wrassling with computer code isn't the only high-tech addition to the education menu. The Guardian quotes a Whitehall source who reportedly said, "Three-dimensional printers will become standard in our schools -- a technology that is transforming manufacturing and the economy."
If you reckon you're technically inclined, wait until you see the cyber-hive-mind children our revamped education system produces -- coding prowess honed to such a level that they see only the Matrix and will be able to hack into our brains using a microwave.
Under the new curriculum, which only applies to schools in England and can be ignored by academies and free schools, 7-year-olds will also be taught computer-aided design.
Internet safety and how to keep personal data private will also be taught at a much younger age. Organising and storing data will be squeezed into lesson plans too.
