In-Classroom Learning

Planning effective, hands-on science, STEAM, and coding lessons takes time, you don’t have to spare. SAM Labs has you covered with complete solutions that provides everything you need to support teaching and student in-classroom learning which means less time to prepare and more time to teach.

Students who used hands-on, in-classroom learning to explore and discover concepts retained 50 percent more information. That’s why SAM Labs has created STEAM and coding solutions that combine critical computational thinking and computer science skills with effective hands-on learning opportunities. Our innovative technology allows your students to prototype solutions to real-world problems across a variety of content areas and bring their learning to life through coding.

“I think what I really like about this work is that it is very high level, it is “real life”, and most of all, it’s fun.  The kids are learning but not really realizing how much learning they’re doing. By integrating all of this work I don’t feel like I’m “giving up” my time. I’m maximizing my time! I think it’s also great that I’m able to incorporate coding, computer science, and even art into this work without doing an extra lesson. The kids naturally want to create works of art that go with their projects.”
