Robin Stevens Payes, founder of Edge of Yesterday Media (EOY), says, “capture a young person’s imagination and you’ll create a lifelong learner.” She’s author of the teen time-travel adventure series and “learning through story” initiative, Edge of Yesterday

Richard Tavener, CEO and founder of Fused Learning of Monterey, CA, shares a similar mantra. Together, Payes and Tavener just created a strategic partnership, which integrates EOY books and curriculum into Fused Learning’s new STEAM initiative, “Adventures in Time.” The program taps arts, science, technology and the humanities and integrates reading and story with hands-on opportunities to engage young people in STEAM.

This dream team now brings Fused Learning and EOY’s curriculum to the California statewide STEM Network, 11 STEM hubs throughout the state, which connect with schools and districts with STEM-focused programs. The CA STEM Hub network reaches more than 3 million students.

ANTONIA DAPENA-TRETTER is a museum educator and art historian based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
