THE MAGIC OF SCIENCE
In ancient times magicians wielded tremendous power in society. Today, of course, we realize that the mysterious world of magic is truly the world of science. All magic is comprised of illusions and the majority of illusions are based on scientific principles. Come with us on a journey of exploration into the science behind the magic.
The Magic of Science allows everyone, both in the audience and on stage, to become a magician. Everything done in this 45 minute program looks and acts like a real magic trick. The only real trick is that everything done is science at work.
Science, studies in chemistry, light, magnetism, optical illusions, physics, and mathematics are all demonstrated. Everything performed has a scientific principle behind it. However, each of these topics will appear to the audience as a challenging and astonishing magic trick.
The 45 minute presentations are tailored for each age group (K-8) and will provide appropriate academic content.
Even more exciting are the "hands-on" workshops offered as part of the full day format. Designed for older children, these sessions teach children to apply principles seen earlier in the day by creating their own "take home" magic shows. It's great fun for everyone!
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.
