I spent some time on Wednesday and Thursday at the North East Skills event with Think Physics. We were there with 'spinning things' - gyroscopes, tops, plates, yo-yo's and a giant gyro-ride. The event is aimed at young people between 14-25, though most are between 14-19. During the day schools brought groups of young people, and on Wednesday evening it was open to the general public (i.e. parents who brought their kids along).
