Makerspace

Makerspace

Keeping a makerspace innovative and student-centered is key to building 21st century and computational thinking skills. SAM Labs Solutions easily add coding and open-ended challenges to your makerspace that will work with any age student.

Supplement individual core subjects with our makerspace playbook, project-based learnings to solidify lessons introduced in the traditional core curriculum. Whether you run a 5th Grade Makerspace classroom or are looking for open-ended computational thinking activities for your 8th Grade Science class on Fridays, your students will have the opportunity to creatively problem solve.

“The possibilities are endless!  Students are able to do so many things with a few blocks.”

Tara Pollick, K-5 STEM Teacher , Mount Nittany Elementary School, PA
