For Fans of "Dancing with the Stars"

Today's the last day to enter the American Association for the Advancement of Science's "Dance Your PhD" contest. The contest is open to anyone with or pursuing a PhD in science or a related field and to apply, researchers need to upload a video of their dance to YouTube and email the link to AAAS. Videos already uploaded include styles as vaired as the lindy hop and ballet, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education. The winners will get to perform at the AAAS annual meeting in February.
