Abstract: This symposium brings together different studies on the adoption and sustainability of FUSE Studios, an alternative STEAM learning infrastructure. Since its launch, FUSE has been adapted successfully in 136 different school-based implementations operating across 18 different states and two countries (USA and Finland). Yet, despite being tailored to each context by local actors, FUSE has largely managed to preserve the integrity of implementation as educational innovation. Each contribution explores a point in the lifecycle of a FUSE adoption and describes local adaptations of the approach in the US and in Finland. In addition to addressing the critical question of how new educational innovations are adopted and sustained, this symposium provides perspectives on how to balance adaptability to local contexts and the integrity (rather than fidelity) of implementation.
