Calling all past and present Ph.D. students! Have you ever felt the urge to convey your graduate work through interpretive dance? Well now's your chance; Science's 2013 "Dance Your Ph.D." Contest has officially begun!
The rules are pretty straightforward. You must be a Ph.D. or be working towards one; the Ph.D. must be in a science-related field (the competition's definition of "science-related" is pretty flexible, check out the FAQs for details); and you must — obviously — be in the dance.
A $500 dollar prize will be awarded to the best dances in the categories of physics, chemistry, biology, and social sciences. The grand-prize winner will receive an additional 500 bucks, plus another prize that has yet to be announced (previous years' winners have been awarded travel and accommodations to the TEDxBrussels conference to be recognized for their achievements).
Here's how to enter:
1. Turn your Ph.D. thesis into a dance (you can check out last year's winners to ignite your creative spark)
