‘Dance Your Ph.D.’ Finalists Announced

Last year, I wrote about Science Magazine’s competition in which researchers could dance their research projects or PhDs. Now the finalists are announced. Check these highly creative scientists out:

That’s the idea behind “Dance Your Ph.D.” Over the past 3 years, scientists from around the world have teamed up to create dance videos based on their graduate research. This year’s contest, launched in June by Science, received 45 brave submissions.

Today, judges—including scientists, choreographers, and past winners—announced the finalists in four categories: physics, chemistry, biology, and social sciences. Each receives $500.

The judges will announce the winner next month at the Imagine Science Film Festival in New York City. But you can vote for your favorite now. We’ll reveal the victor—and our reader pick—on 19 October.

Winner of the Biology category: The influence of previous experiences on visual awareness

Runner-up: Genetic Diversity of Bacillus anthracis in North America
