Sugar is designed to encourage exploration and learning by children that have not been exposed to or indoctrinated into any existing computing environment.


The Sugar stack

Sugar is implemented on top of existing or modified operating systems and hardware. Sugar Activities ("Sugar-enhanced applications") are accessed by the user from the Sugar platform. Many Activities, such as Browse, take advantage of library collections. Some collections are included with Sugar; others may be installed from the Web or created locally.

The layers in a Sugar system are:

  • Library Collections (e.g., for the Browse Activity)
  • Sugar Activities
  • Sugar
  • Operating System
  • Computer Hardware
