The “Dance Your Ph.D.” Contest
The dreaded question. “So, what’s your Ph.D. research about?” You take a deep breath and launch into the explanation. People’s eyes begin to glaze over…
At times like these, don’t you wish you could just turn to the nearest computer and show people an online video of your Ph.D. thesis interpreted in dance form?
Now you can. And while you’re at it, you can win $1000, achieve immortal geek fame on the Internet, and be recognized by Science for your effort.
Prizes: The cash prizes are $500 for the best dance in each category, and an additional $500 for the overall winner. The grand prize is still under wraps. Stay tuned.
