PHYSICS IS FUN
This program allows students to experience why we feel Physics is Fun! The show is based on Sir Isaac Newton and his laws of physics as well as the inventions of Robert VandeGraff and Nikola Tesla.
The first category discusses sound; what it is, how we hear, why we hear, and the difference between loud and soft sounds. Several demonstrations are used in this segment to demonstrate these principles.
Next, the intentions of Robert VandeGraff and Nikola Tesla are explored in detail. These gentlemen pioneered experiments in static electricity and are responsible for many modern pieces of electronics that we have today, yet very few people have ever heard of them.
The next segment is dedicated to gyros and gyroscopic stability. Large working models of gyros are introduced to the audience. Student and teacher participation is used to the laughter of the viewing audience.
Gravity is then discusses as another of Newton's laws and a magic trick is used to show the students what would happen if we didn't have gravity. The performer then explains what gravity is, how it works, and how it affects us in everyday life.
The final segment deals with Newton's third law, the law of action and reaction. In this segment the performer introduces a pulse ram jet engine. He explains how Newton's third law applies to jet engines. This segment is very exciting to the students as the jet engine generates a considerably high level of sound.
The 45 minute presentations are tailored for each age group (K-9) and will provide appropriate academic content. The program comes complete with its own visual aids, making this show the type that all audiences can appreciate. All demonstrations are visible in even the largest of auditoriums.
Physics is Fun is also available in an all-day format with hands-on workshops.
Physics is Fun Update!The Physics is Fun show is now equipped with a GIANT VandeGraff generator! We've taken the classic scientific instrument and upgraded to a five-foot tall generator. This new unit will really make your hair stand on end!
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.
