Sharing projects in SAM Studio

Start here. Scale here.

SAM Studio grows with your students. With two coding platforms suitable for beginner and intermediate coders, plus curriculum and hardware to match, SAM Studio has you covered from Kindergarten to 8th grade. No more changing platforms for each grade level—what a relief!

Teach On-screen & Off

Pair with your SAM Blocks to bring project-based learning to life, or use the virtual blocks inside SAM Studio to get started on-screen right away.

Coding tailored to your students

To best support beginner and intermediate coders alike, SAM Studio includes two coding languages: Flow-based coding with SAM Space, and Block-based coding with SAM Blockly (formerly Google Workbench).
