ScienceShot: Dance Your Ph.D. Update—Dance Your Way to California
7 October 2013 3:45 pm
Want a free trip to California this spring? If you can explain the science behind your Ph.D. research through interpretive dance, you could be heading to Palo Alto. The Science/AAAS “Dance Your Ph.D.” contest has a new prize sponsor: HighWire Press, the online hosting platform for Science.
The 2013 contest, which is open to graduate students, professors, and former scientists alike, has been running all summer. But the new prize sponsor merits an extension of the deadline to 21 October. Here are the details:
The prize: Travel expenses (max $2000) and 2 nights stay in a hotel in Palo Alto, California, to attend HighWire's spring publisher's meeting at Stanford University on 8 May 2014
The catch: You must give a talk about your Ph.D. dance and show the video.
To enter: Follow instructions on the contest home page.
Deadline: Monday, 21 October 2013
Warm weather awaits, dancing scientists!
