Dance your PhD and you could win $1000 in the 7th annual AAAS and Science Magazine Contest #science

The 7th annual AAAS and Science sponsored ‘Dance Your PhD Contest’ is underway!

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 a video of your Ph.D. thesis interpreted in dance form?

Now you can! And while you’re at it, you can win $1000 and a free trip to California, achieve immortal geek fame on the Internet, and be recognized by Science for your effort.

Time to start choreographing, recruiting dancers, and finding someone to videotape! Entries are due September 29, 2014. Instructions for entering are here.

Here is and example from Cedric Tan (University of Oxford, thesis about sperm competition):
