SAM Blockly

SAM Blockly is your perfect Chromebook solution, in addition to running on the Chrome browser on Macbooks. Making their start with SAM Space, students then progress to SAM Blockly and can naturally graduate to script-based languages in later years. This SAM Labs solution uses the familiarity teachers have with software like Scratch but adds in physical systems to bring STEAM learning to life. The software even integrates with other products, bringing added value to purchases that have been previously made for the classroom. Teachers can interact with the education community, sharing their lessons online and discovering new content from other teachers.
