About Sugar Labs:
It serves a great educational purpose which is helped by its 100+ volunteers. It's very helpful in a student's life. Every student should learn computer science because without computer we cannot improve of our life in today’s era.There are games that prompts the user to identify the images and boost their memories.
"It encourages critical thinking which is heart of quality education and is designed from the ground up especially for children."It concentrates on graphical expression by pupils which are very new to programming and also teaches the pupils on how to set and achieve goals in their lives.
In my perspective this is a kind of a social service for all the world as it is a non-profitable organisation. "Just as learning is not something done to you, but something you do, learning with Sugar ultimately means participating in the Sugar development process. Sugar is a free and open-source software." So what are you waiting for, try it with your siblings, students and children as it is exceptionally good...

What I like about the Activity!
From my childhood I used to have something in my mind like this, some way that could teach me in such a play way method. Learning pronunciations with such play way makes children enthusiastic about such attainments. Moreover, teaching kids with such fun inculcates knowledge in them in a better way!So it appeals to them and is very simple and easy to understand.And moreover it can be a fun to use for a longer period of time.
What I Dislike about the Activity!
The activity should rather posses more of these expressions that could be changed for the appearance of the robot so as to have more fun!Also if it can come in voice translation of a female. And we can have an option for the recordings.
Bugs in the activity
After using Speak activity for my sibling quite some time, I was unable to spot any prominent bugs present in it!
Projects I can do using the Activity
Till date I don't think so that we can do any of the projects but if we have some of the features like recordings, we can do the projects like uploading these recordings so as to make pupils understand those in a better way!
