Scientists can be a serious bunch, but many also have a creative side. Witness our fourth-annual “Dance Your Ph.D.” contest, with 55 entries from around the world. Or the annual Ig Nobel prizes, which recognize the silly side of research. What happens at the intersection of science, art, and humor? And how can you best unleash your creativity?
Join us for a live chat to discuss these and other questions at 3 p.m. EDT on Thursday, 27 October, on this page. You can leave your questions in the comment box below before the chat starts.
