Meet Smart Buddies

An innovative way to teach everyone how to code.

Inclusive and Diverse 

Designed with a focus on story-telling, the SugarCoded™ app starts with eight different diverse ‘character’ graphic novels.

The e-books introduces interests in science, engineering, computer science and also address systemic and personal issues such as diversity, race, gender differences and conflict resolution.

Power of Stories with CS

Students are then introduced to the basics of block-based coding by controlling the movements of their characters on ‘robotic’ el-scooters/segways.

Exercises include problem-solving techniques that cover fundamental coding concepts:

  • Sequences

  • Loops

  • Events

  • Conditionals

  • Functions

  • Variables

Our unique curriculum teaches kids to code in a fun and educational way.

Smart Buddies Coding Program Features

Highly Engaging

A recent pilot with 250 students, showed high levels of engagement with both girls and boys with teachers reporting that children ‘missed recess’ to continue coding! With an easy to use colorful interface and game-like exercises/videos and comic-book style graphics, Smart Buddies ensures the whole class is engaged and learning.

Engaging right out of the box, the SugarCoded program is a redesigned version of the block-based programming tool Google Blockly, that offers never ending in-app challenges to keep kids in the classroom engaged for hours.

Meets Core Curriculum

Our lesson plans are designed to meet CSTA, ISTE-S, and Common Core State Standards.
