Connect the dots between physical and digital

SAM Labs provides everything you need to deliver the most engaging STEAM learning experience to your classroom. It seamlessly connects software and hardware with lesson plans that cover a wide variety of subjects, making learning about coding accessible, experimental, interactive and fun.

SAM Labs kits are bursting with wireless electronic blocks that each have a personality of their own. From lights to motors to sliders to buzzers, every Bluetooth-enabled block can connect to the others via the app to do something different. Press a button to turn a light on!  Use a light sensor to activate an alarm! With the app, students can code the behaviours of blocks in any way they can imagine, enabling them to make anything from simple reactions to complex creations in minutes.

SAM Blocks and Accessories

Built for the classroom, each wireless Bluetooth SAM block connects effortlessly and can be easily recharged. Each block is an input or an output, such as a motor, a light or a light sensor. Use the SAM Space app to connect the blocks together. For example, if you connect the light sensor and a motor, the motor will run faster as you shine more light on the sensor.

SAM Space allows for blocks to be visualised and coded together in a simple and intuitive way. Visual, flow-based drag-and-drop coding allows students to take a their physical SAM Blocks, drop them into a virtual canvas and connect them together to create projects. SAM Space can also be used by students at home even if they don’t have any physical blocks.
