The schoolchildren participated in a series of scientific and technical challenges followed by a prize-giving ceremony. Students from the University of Aberdeen gave interactive demonstrations of physics principles in action. 

Amongst other demonstrations, pupils experimented with a "gravity defying" bicycle wheel and were shown how to push skewers through balloons without popping them.

The IOP were represented by James Reid, Pascal Heymann, Harry Barnard and Aleksandar Grigorov - all of the University of Aberdeen.
