A TEAM of scientists will carry out experiments and demonstrations on Great Yarmouth's seafront on Bank Holiday Monday.

The Science: (So what? So everything), campaign will hit the promenade between noon and 2pm, performing science experiments to amaze and entertain holidaying families.

The scientists will be outside Joyland, explaining the science behind the experiments, whilst teaching the public how to do them.

The event is part of a national seaside tour around Britain which is being organised by Science: (So what? So everything), which aims to show the public how relevant science is to all of our lives.

Volunteer scientists, through experiments, will demonstrate and explain the simple science that forms the basis of many things in the world around us. People of all ages are welcome to come down to this free event to join in the fun.

The scientists will show that it's possible to push a skewer through an inflated balloon without it bursting, but not possible to break a raw egg by squeezing it in your hand. The scientists will even be using liquid nitrogen to make ice cream!

Many of the demonstrations include everyday objects and will show the public how to do some of the experiments at home, such as making a soda fountain, or getting a peeled hard-boiled egg into a bottle without it breaking.

The Science: (So what? So everything) team will also be giving out goodies to help you perform some of the experiments at home.
