Curious about how you can bring STEAM into your school or classroom? Or looking to deepen your knowledge of coding and where it can be applied across STEAM subjects? This Professional Development session is the perfect opportunity to gets hands-on with STEAM and learn how and what is possible! SAM Labs is an engaging, hands-on tool that can elevate your computer science skills based on a combination of wireless hardware blocks, intuitive coding platforms, and standards-aligned lessons. Focused on inspiring students as early as kindergarten, SAM Labs makes learning about STEAM engaging and fun, with a strong pedagogical foundation, while integrating it into subjects like science, technology, math or even ELA.

In this training, we will learn foundational coding skills with SAM Labs using the intuitive SAM Space app, before diving into how to apply these skills and approach with the SAM Labs lesson plans. Covering topics ranging from Morse Code, through Friction to Earthquakes, you are bound to find applicable lessons in the extensive repertoire of varied curriculum. Throughout the day we will also be learning about essential concepts like problem solving and computational thinking, and how STEAM education can introduce and foster these skills for students and educators alike. Prepare to be creative, have fun, and bring back some new ideas and skills!

STEM clock-hours will be available.
