BioBuzz sat down with Robin to learn about her journey, the projects she's working on, and the vision that she has for STEAM education for the next generation of young scientists.
Book blogger Deborah Kalb gets up-close-and-personal with Robin Payes about writing, time travel, STEM and promoting curiosity and creativity in teens.
Robin Stevens Payes wants to use fictional time travel to inspire real-life change for kids getting into STEM. And she's doing it with the help of a Finnish learning model, a French polymath and a school fit for the President's kid.
Claire van Stolk '18 has spent her summer exploring how all her favorite subjects &emdash; history, language, math, and science—intersect as an intern for Robin Stevens Payes, author of the new young adult novel, Edge of Yesterday.
Edge-of-Yesterday-author Robin Payes published a new article on the National Girls Collaborative Project website.
Edge-author Robin Payes co-lead the Maryland Writer Association Teen Writing Workshop at the 2017 Gaithersburg Book Festival.
Edge of Yesterday made the news again as it was featured in Innovation & Tech Today.
The article explains how we use Leonardo da Vinci's teachings as a core for our updated approach to STEM and STEAM.
This past week, Edge of Yesterday was featured in The Washington Post as a new approach for STEM and interdisciplinary learning methods.
In a debut novel, Edge of Yesterday, author Robin Stevens Payes, brings Leonardo da Vinci and his visionary powers to life through the eyes of a modern-day teen. When 13-year-old Charley Morton decides to build Leonardo da Vinci's plans for a time machine for the middle school science fair, she has two thoughts in mind: to win first prize and to travel back in time to meet her Renaissance idol, Leonardo.
What happens when three middle school readers meet Charley? Rave reviews! At an author's lunch, we discussed how Edge of Yesterday came to be, what it takes to write a novel, and encouragement for aspiring fiction writers.
Thanks to our reviewers from St. Andrews Episcopal School for your insights!
