Learn to Code Course

SAM Labs Learn to Code Course is designed for grades 4 to 8, anywhere educators are looking to make abstract programming concepts tangible. Designed for teachers at all levels of coding experience, use our easy-to-teach Block-based Coding platform and Bluetooth-connected hardware to bring projects to life.

Each lesson follows Sam on a mission through Cyberspace, providing students with the opportunity to learn Computer Science concepts, code a program, reflect on, and debug it.

STEAM Course

SAM labs STEAM Course helps K-5 educators prepare their students by introducing STEAM concepts from an early age. Use easy-to-teach coding and prototyping solutions to teach science, mathematics, and critical thinking.

A STEAM course subscription includes access to SAM Labs Flow-based Coding platform, which makes it easy to introduce coding to all ages. Power up your class with our Bluetooth-connected hardware that lets students bring their projects to life!

75+ hours of lessons are designed to increase student engagement, decrease teacher workload, and build confidence. Standards Alignment maps and Grade overviews are included to support your planning.

Mix coding with science! Have your students use SAM Labs to code a project to help them make observations during your Phase Change unit.

Properties of Matter

  • During your Phase Change unit, have students set up an automatic camera for observations. To do this, use Camera Blocks and Time Trigger blocks. Have students set each timer trigger one minute apart.
  • Then, place an ice cube on a plate and have the students position their devices in such a way that the camera is pointed at the area where the ice cube can be viewed easily.
  • Since the trigger blocks and camera blocks are connected, the camera will automatically take photos of the ice cube throughout the day. Have students review the photos and observe what happens when heat is applied to the ice cube during the day.
  • Challenge! Debug the code. How do you know if the camera has taken a picture? Add sound to be sure.

Drive student achievement, and career readiness.

Introducing iBlocks, a cross-curricular, holistic learning approach by structuring your learning content with a primary and secondary subject focus. But because iBlocks are also customizable and expandable, these foci can change to suit your school’s needs, should you choose to tailor your iBlock.
