This is too much fun. Want to get rid of the stereotype of scientists as stuffy or nerdy? Check out the “Dance Your PhD Contest” where real scientists create a dance based on their PhD thesis.

Here is a contestant dancing her thesis about pulsating stars. Check for more examples on You Tube, or at the links below.

DNLee at Urban Science Adventures also did a wonderful dance. She did a “Microtus Shuffle” based on her thesis work with Microtus prairie voles.
