RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Here's a fact for you: The Science Museum of Virginia won a national dance contest.

The museum took down the Shrem Museum of Art in Davis, CA, with its music video for "Factual," a modified version of "Physical" by Olivia Newton-John.

The song talks about doing research and reaching fact-based conclusions. It also features scientists in lab coats dabbing.

The competition was sponsored by WhenYouWorkAtAMuseum.com. Votes are being taken for the international competition, which puts the Science Museum of Virginia against six other museum from New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.

In the U.S. competition, the science museum's video beat out the art museum's interpretative dance to Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me" where they literally poured sugar on each other.
