About SAMA


It all started when…

Dr. Tassone was driving to teach a course on light-matter interaction and, as luck would have it, was listening to a podcast on virtual reality. That moment coupled with his work utilizing artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery of new materials for energy applications, sparked the original idea for Sama Learning. Chris and Barb worked to bring a concept design into a few schools for testing and when they saw the results and heard the feedback from the students and faculty, a company was born.
