STEAM Solution

Bring STEAM & Coding skills into K-5 Science, ELA, & Gen Ed.

Easily integrate STEAM into everyday learning.

The benefits of STEAM education are well-documented. By integrating arts and design into traditional classroom subjects, students are better able to engage with the material, make connections between disparate concepts, and develop creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Furthermore, studies have shown that STEAM instruction can improve student outcomes across a variety of academic disciplines. For these reasons, it is essential that educators find ways to implement STEAM into their classrooms. SAM Studio provides an easy-to-use online platform that makes it simple for teachers to select standards-aligned lesson plans and monitor student progress. With everything in one place, educators can focus on providing explicit instruction and helping their students thrive.

The SAM Labs STEAM solution brings real-world science concepts to life through engaging, hands-on learning. Designed for kindergarten through fifth grade students, the STEAM solution from SAM Labs is often used in Science, English Language Arts, & Gen Ed. settings. Students are guided to innovate systems that power prototypes and create solutions. From a smart greenhouse to a drag parachute, a seed dispersing squirrel to a working model of erosion, students solidify their skills through our STEAM approach. As the workforce becomes increasingly driven by STEAM skills, it’s more important than ever for students to develop a strong foundation in these disciplines.
