In-Classroom Learning

STEAM & STEM Kits for Classrooms

Teaching science, STEAM and STEM, and coding with hands-on lessons can be time-consuming! SAM Labs offers complete solutions and kits to support teachers and students in the classroom, saving you prep time and allowing for more teaching time.

Students who engage in hands-on, in-classroom learning experiences tend to retain 50 percent more information. That’s why SAM Labs has created STEAM and STEM kits for classrooms 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.”
