The 2013 TUCSON GLASS FESTIVAL--S.T.E.A.M. OFF: The Science Behind the Art - was presented by Philabaum Glass Gallery & Studio and Sonoran Glass School on April 13-14, 2013. The S.T.E.A.M. OFF is a glass blowing competition where teams of artists compete to create the piece with the most S.T.E.A.M i.e elements of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. UA Professor of Materials Science & Engineering Pam Vandiver, and students Leah Edwards, Brendan Tobin and Autumn Eaton took 2nd place with their “Camel Train”. The exhibition titled “The Science Behind The Art”, featuring the competitors at the Tucson Glass Festival’s S.T.E.A.M. OFF competition is now on display in the Philabaum gallery. The range of creativity that the glass artists exhibited in portraying the science inspires all, no matter which side of the academics you find yourself.
