Smart Friendship Bracelets Teach Young Girls How To Code


Jewelbots is a line of programmable jewelry that makes coding fun for girls.

We have seen a number of toys and devices, such as Piper and Bitsbox that aim at teaching kids about engineering and coding. The latest of these is Jewelbots, programmable jewelry for pre-teen and teenage girls, a fashionable yet functional way to excite them about the potential of being coders and engineers.

Friendship bracelets have always involved an element of creative learning, and the resurgence of loom bands shows that customizable jewelry is very popular with young people. Jewelbots are connected by Bluetooth, a techno update of the friendship bracelet for the smart generation.


To begin, wearers access the Jewelbot app to connect the bracelet to that of friends and then program it to light up or change color when the connected friends are near. As they become familiar with programming, more creative and complex responses can be achieved, all the while learning the fundamentals of computer science. On the Jewelbots open source platform, users will be able to create their own rules, like flashing a specific color to indicate texts from family or vibrating when notified of a new Instagram follower. Jewelbots can be previewed at various upcoming Hackdays across the US.
