The surprising and interesting combination of candy and programming stimulated our students imagination. They told me they felt candy was special so I think they can find programming more approachable now.

“GLICODE” was very easy to prepare and use in lessons, even without any previous technically knowledge. It's great that children can learn to code using physical objects without ever needing to sit in front of a computer.

I found it very impressive that the kids didn't just keep their what they learnt to themselves, but shared it amongst others in their group because of the playful nature of “GLICODE”. The use of Pocky as a user interface was very intuitive and quickly understood by the entire class.
