From bicycle backpacks to robot dogs, educators across Tasmania shared insights into both their work and their students as part of an event streamed live across the world on Wednesday night.
Back for its second year STEAM Horizons is facilitated by the University of Tasmania and state Education Department, with the symposium streaming from Rosny College, Launceston Big Picture School and Burnie Primary.
"It's a great opportunity for our school to see what other schools are doing in the STEAM [science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics] field," said Big Picture School principal Adrian Dean.
"But also for some young people who are students here ... to showcase some of the work that they are doing."

"A great example is a video ... showing [a bicycle] one of our people has designed and is nearly finished building ... that will fold up into the shape of a back pack."
UTAS arts education lecturer Dr Abbey Macdonald said the aim of the symposium was to show how STEAM is being used in a holistic way where all disciplines benefit the others.
