Tips & Tricks: Dance Your PhD!

September 25, 2015

There needs to be a new way to tell people what your PhD is about, something that will stop their eyes from glazing over and their thoughts drifting away, right?

Now there is!

The Dance Your PhD contest, sponsored by Science Magazine, will liven up even the most incomprehensible thesis. Plus, it could win you a trip to California, $1000 and, best of all, viral video status!

Entry couldn't be simpler - just come up with a dance to express your PhD, post it on YouTube and send the link in by Wednesday, October 28 at 11:59 EST. More details and links can be found on the website.

Stumped about how to turn your work on microbiology into a dance? Your dissertation on the habits of the slug? Get some inspiration with last year's videos!
