What is SAM Labs?

SAM Labs provides everything you need to deliver the most engaging STEAM learning experience in your classroom. Giving you the tools and support to make the most of your lessons, SAM Labs makes learning interactive and engaging.
This includes curriculum-aligned lesson plans, intuitive visual flow-based apps, and wireless electronic blocks that connect seamlessly to solve stimulating challenges.
Students can use SAM Labs to design, write, and debug programs, applying sequencing, selection, and iteration. They will use logical reasoning to write algorithms, incorporating variables, inputs, and outputs. Using the blocks and app, they will learn to control and simulate physical systems.

Why use SAM Labs?

  • A fun and interactive way to bring coding to life
  • Curriculum-aligned lesson plans and projects
  • An intuitive visual, flow-based coding app tailored for any classroom or ability level
  • Google Workbench enables progression to block-based programming
  • Easy-to-install, wireless Bluetooth SAM Blocks that are made to last
  • Mac, iOS, Android, Windows and Chromebook compatible
  • Teacher support and training
  • Versatile technology that can be used across a variety of subjects

Create Connections

Create connections between your virtual SAM Blocks in the app to see the paired physical blocks react

Apply Behaviours

Assign behaviours in the SAM Space app to alter the actions of the blocks

Effortless Pairing

Turn your wireless bluetooth SAM Blocks on and see them appear in the SAM Space app for quick and easy pairing in the classroom

SAM Labs at Home

Your students can use SAM Space outside of class by assigning homework that uses the virtual SAM Blocks in the app

Teaching Materials

SAM Labs helps both teachers and students discover coding in an accessible, fun and interactive way. The lesson plans and guides created for teachers, by teachers, make integrating SAM Labs into your classroom quick and easy. SAM Labs is aligned with international education standards to ensure projects and lesson plans can be used across the curriculum to benefit all teachers and all students.

SAM Blocks and Accessories

Built for the classroom, each wireless Bluetooth SAM block connects effortlessly and can be easily recharged. Each block is an input or an output, such as a motor, a light or a light sensor. Use the SAM Space app to connect the blocks together. For example, if you connect the light sensor and a motor, the motor will run faster as you shine more light on the sensor.

SAM Apps

SAM Space allows for blocks to be visualised and coded together in a simple and intuitive way. Visual, flow-based drag-and-drop coding allows students to take a their physical SAM Blocks, drop them into a virtual canvas and connect them together to create projects. SAM Space can also be used by students at home even if they don’t have any physical blocks.
Curious Cars is a bespoke code-to-game app that is a great way of getting your students to learn through play.
