Coding / STEM Technologies


SAM Labs kits include app-enabled, programmable blocks that each have a personality of their own – designed to inspire every student and empower non-technical teachers with easy and engaging coding and STEAM solutions for the classroom.

By combining highly engaging software with physical Bluetooth-enabled blocks, students can become engineers and programmers by visualizing and coding in a simple and intuitive way.

Every Bluetooth-enabled block can connect to the other blocks to perform a different function – press a button to turn on a light, use a light sensor to activate an alarm, and more!

Share student work from their devices or model projects using the SAM Space app on any external PC or SMART Board. Model projects and engage in whole class learning on an external PC or SMART Board with iQ with Windows, or share student work from their devices to any SMART Board with iQ through screensharing. SAM Labs lesson plans and student worksheets can be imported into SMART Learning Suite Online.

Take SAM Labs a step further using Learn to Code Kits that integrate Google’s Workbench and micro:bit. Allow students to progress from flow-based coding in SAM Space, to block-based coding with more versatility using Workbench.
