Chemistry, It Really Matters
The excitement and enchantment of the world of chemistry comes to life with Mobile Ed's latest science assembly. We have taken the best and the boldest from our past chemistry programs and added state-of-the-science technology to create a presentation certain to capture the interests of students and staff alike. Students will be treated to an array of experiments which will enable them to develop a thorough understanding of the foundation of all matter: solids, liquids, and gases.
The petrochemical industry: The safe and appropriate use of gasoline is examined through the use of exciting demonstrations. The perils of environmental mistakes are discussed. Audience participation heightens the interest and the excitement of the students.
Natural gases: Students will observe how all of their senses are impacted by the power of gases mixed in different ways. Hydrogen, oxygen, helium, and carbon dioxide are some of the gases explored.
The advancements in synthetic materials are examined as our presenter combines two chemicals which mushroom into a pillow of polyfoam. It is then formed into the shape of a giant yellow "Frisbee" type flying saucer which is left with the school as a memento of our visit.
Safety is an underlying theme of the entire presentation. Students will gain a valuable lesson as they are shown why it is so important to always follow instructions, always use appropriate safety equipment, and never take anything for granted.
Hands-on workshops are also available. For younger students, topics such as the use of liquid nitrogen are explored. Older students will have the chance to solve a mock bank robbery by exploring the uses of chromatography. The production of nylon and a more comprehensive look into acids and bases may also be used during the workshops.

Mobile Ed Productions, Inc. produces, markets and manages LIVE educational science and curriculum enrichment programs.
Since our start in 1979, we have become the largest company to present workshops and assemblies at school and community groups. We do approximately 6000 educational programs each year! And we love it!
Our programs are written by elementary and secondary school teachers and school administrators. We have influenced many science teachers by the way we demonstrate science concepts in terms of everyday life. Support for many of our programs is provided by major companies such as Union Carbide, Matheson Gas Products and Dow Chemical Company.
We bring the field trip to you, by eliminating the need for chaperones, transportation, and travel time. Our engaging presentations make learning fun -- whether it's about science, the environment, history, literature, theater and music or promoting self esteem. We present complex information in a compelling manner so students enjoy learning.
Most of our presentations are truck-size professional displays, not suitcase-size disappointments! We expand the world of science beyond the traditional classroom, using high tech tools not readily accessible to schools.
We are far beyond that of a school assembly company. We furnish hands-on workshops for most of our programs. retention level is at an all-time high with Mobile Ed presentations. Our presenters will make a lasting impression. They're the best trained, most informative and humorous educators and performers in the industry. We hire the best.
Mobile Ed can also assist your organization with a variety of specialty performances that can be secured for not only your school functions but also for parent groups, scout groups, evening programs, special weekend programs, latch key, gifted and talented, church groups, corporate events, or any other event that might require entertainment or educational programming. Mobile Ed enjoys the challenge of combining entertainment with education and it shows. An added benefit is that we have the best pricing and the best quality.
