It was a meeting of the brightest minds at the department of education's first ever STEM conference for teachers.
The conference featured talks from keynote speakers including Women in STEM ambassador Professor Lisa Harvey-Smith and Chief Scientist of Australia, Dr Cathy Foley.
"They're getting more and more important ... STEM is more about students applying their subject knowledge from those learnings areas and then putting it together to solve problems," Senior Project Officer for STEM Rose Anderson said.
"It is from that innovation, from that cross-disciplinary connection that is going to be solving future problems."
Ms said the first ever STEM conference held by the department of education had been a huge success with 120 people in attendance.
"Absolutely, it went beyond our expectations."
"We are hoping to (host more in the future) but it all depends on funding ... if the budget would allow we would do it again."
Ms Anderson said that students would reap the benefits from the engaging conference which covers science, technology, engineering and maths.
"It is so powerful when teachers are learning from other practicing teachers because they can see if it's worked there it can work for me," she said
