Dance Your Ph.D.: Past Winners and Finalists
23 September 2011 9:11 am
It all started as a live event in Vienna in 2008. Scientists from across Europe gathered to watch each other explain their Ph.D. theses with interpretive dance. It was supposed to be a bizarre one-off. But then the e-mails started rolling in from scientists around the world. "When is the next dance contest?" The idea seemed to have hit a nerve.
So in 2009, Science officially launched the Dance Your Ph.D. Contest. That year, four finalists collaborated with professional choreographers to conduct a scientific dance experiment. For the 2010 contest, the finalists received their awards on stage at the Imagine Science Film festival in New York City.
For this year’s contest, the winner will go to Belgium as a guest of honor at TEDxBrussels. See below for past winners.
