Dance your PhD Competition

Ever been told scientists can’t dance? Well here is your chance to prove them wrong!

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.

Sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

If you have, or are pursuing your Ph.D. in a science-related field this is an opportunity not to be missed! Entering is EASY! Here is what to do:

1. Turn your PhD thesis into a dance.
2. Get the dance on video.
3. Put the video online and send the link over to the competition hosts before the deadline!
