Speaking in front of a group is hard enough, but to dance? That pushes many scientists over the edge. Still, if you are one of those researchers brave enough to “bust a move”, Science Magazine has a challenge for you – the Dance your PhD contest!
This contest requires a whole different communication skill set – the ability to explain your dissertation research through interpretive dance. Anyone that’s ever conducted dissertation research in a scientific field can participate, even if you finished grad school before the internet. This is a great chance to communicate your science in a new way, withoutsaying a word.
For all of your brave science communicators, round up some friends, your favorite dance beats, and choreograph a winner as you dance your PhD. Entries are due 1 October 2013. Good luck!
