Dancing Chicken Sperm Wins Contest

The top prize for the “Dance Your Ph.D.,” a contest for transforming thesis topics into an interpretive dance, goes to guys in Speedos acting out what they believe to be chicken sperm. Biologist Cedrick Tan of the University of Oxford created this unique idea from his study “Sperm Competition Between Brothers and Female Choice” and was selected by a panel of scientists and artists. As the winner, Tan received $1,000 and a trip to display his video at Stanford University.
