STEM Learning
Listen
Designed to open the minds of middle-grade readers to the adventure of learning about STEM through storytelling, Robin Stevens Payes is firing up a love for science with the second book in her thrilling EDGE OF YESTERDAY science fiction series. STEM is the fastest-growing sector in employment—up 28 percent since 2000. However, from 2014-2015 in the U.S. there were only some 30K STEM graduates for approximately 230K STEM jobs. To help America reverse that trend, Payes is creating a curriculum that will present STEM through play, discovery, character, creativity and storytelling. She works with teens through the Maryland Writers Association teen clubs, Girls in Technology and the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning.
