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.
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.
