Dance Your PhD



Watching doctoral students interpret their dissertations in dance actually makes dense topics easier to understand. But they aren’t doing it for us. They’ve entered this year’s Dance Your PhD competition.  Of the 55 entries in physics, chemistry, biology, and social science posted at ScienceNOW, one lucky winner will be chosen Thursday, October 20th.

Here are a few of the 16 finalists.
