The expansion of technology has infused STEM principles, engineering and scientific methods into the artistic process, blurring the boundaries between technology and art. This has also created new modes of collaboration among different disciplines and learning communities. Artists, makers, and researchers increasingly share expertise, interdisciplinary knowledge, and authorship. These new creative partnerships offer exciting opportunities to expand our own perspectives, but the entry point for these partnerships is not always readily apparent. The symposium explores the potential of education to bridge the gap between art and technology, bringing together disciplines and communities through new modes of collaboration.
