The Gravity Fields festival is underway in Grantham, celebrating physicist Isaac Newton who was educated in the town.
The festival takes place every two years and has scientific displays, exhibitions and you might even bump in to Mr. Newton himself...or at least, a lookalike.
Hi-tech companies including Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin and Mercedes are joining forces with the Red Arrows and The Education Business Partnership (EBP) to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists.
The firms will showcase their work to more than 300 children at RAF Scampton, which is the Lincolnshire home of the world-renowned Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team.
The special day is part of celebrations marking the Red Arrows’ 50th display season in 2014 and will focus on the importance of studying science, technology, engineering and maths – the so-called STEM subjects.
Also in attendance tomorrow will be physicist Professor Brian Cox, maths expert Carol Vorderman, The Gadget Show host Jason Bradbury and Wing Commander Andy Green, who is the holder of the world land speed record.
The pupils will also get to watch a practice display by the Red Arrows.
Members of the public are being invited to sit in the driver's seat of a giant piece of mining machinery. The Walking Dragline at Swillington near Leeds is thought to be the biggest preserved example of it's kind in Western Europe.

Around 250 children are taking part in a study looking at how we develop between the ages of three and 10. As part of the Lincoln University programme they will play games which will help researchers assess cognitive ability.
Tortoises have been the subject of a study led by a University of Lincoln academic.
The reptiles were monitored to test their navigational skills and managed to work out how to win a strawberry by pressing the screen.
A red triangle on the screen was followed by two blue circles. The tortoises were trained to press either the left or right circle to get a strawberry.
Dr Anna Wilkinson found that when food was given to the tortoises in two blue bowls, similar to the circles, the tortoises went for the food on the same side as the circle they were trained to press.
Military aircrew from as far afield as Australia and the Czech Republic are in North Yorkshire to train British helicopter crews for war. RAF pilots, some who have served in Afghanistan, are being trained in advanced air warfare skills.
