Mid-March saw me head north to Newcastle to stay for a few days again. Despite there being no Maker Faire this year (shame), it was Science Week instead. There were various events arranged during the week. We visited the Botanical Gardens, attended a lecture on Astronomy and heard Alistair Campbell speak about the science of decision making.
Unfortunately, towards the end of my trip I managed to pick up a nasty throat and ear infection, which put a slight dampener on our outings. I was well enough to go to Beamish outdoor museum and see friends for a Newcastle Photowalk around Whitburn and Souter Lighthouse. Alistair and I also indulged in a bit of night time light painting, with my newly-acquired LED Lenser V24 lightsabre. It was great fun and I’m pleased with the results so far.
Here is a selection of images from my trip:
