Sugar Labs contributes to and helps maintain the award-winning Sugar Learning Platform, which promotes collaborative learning through Sugar Activities.
Learning software for children
Sugar is an activity-focused, free/libre open-source software learning platform for children. Collaboration, reflection, and discovery are integrated directly into the user interface. Through Sugar's clarity of design, children and teachers have the opportunity to use computers on their own terms. Students can reshape, reinvent, and reapply both software and content into powerful learning activities. Sugar's focus on sharing, criticism, and exploration is grounded in the culture of free software (FLOSS)
Every user is greeted with this homepage view when they open Sugar. The color of the icon in the middle can be changed.
In the Sugar Neighborhood view, learners see their friends clustered around their current Activities; from this view, they can join each other’s Activities. Sugar collaboration works "peer to peer," in a classroom or under a tree; Sugar does not require the Internet.

At Sugar Labs, we make a collection of tools that learners use to explore, discover, create, and reflect. We are non-profit and led by volunteers. We distribute these tools freely and encourage our users to appropriate them, taking ownership and responsibility for their learning. Sugar Labs, a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization, had its origins in the One Laptop per Child project. The mission of Sugar Labs is to support the Sugar community of users and developers and establish regional, autonomous “Sugar Labs” around the world to help learners “learn how to learn” by tailoring Sugar to local languages and curricula.
