A SEASIDE science tour will be adding to the entertainment in Great Yarmouth on holiday Monday.

The Science: So what? So everything campaign will hit the promenade between noon and 2pm.

A team of scientists will perform demonstrations outside Joyland, explaining the science behind the experiments, whilst teaching the public how to do them.

The free event is part of a national seaside tour aiming to show the public how relevant science is to our lives.

The experiments demonstrate the simple science that forms the basis of many things in the world around us.

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 and using liquid nitrogen to make ice cream.
