Illinois School Assembly Programs

Educational school assemblies and hands-on workshops touring Illinois this year

Illinois school assemblies

Since 1979, Mobile Ed Productions has been the nationwide leader in live, educational entertainment, and we're continuing the tradition again this year with another tour of amazing experiences for you and your students. Look no further than Mobile Ed for assemblies in Illinois!

Illinois is one of Mobile Ed's favorite states, and a frequent and popular visit for all of our school assemblies and school assembly programs. We are often at schools in the greater Chicago area, throughout the year. In fact some of our presenters are resident in Chicago all year long, and so are available for special events, library programs, Cub Scout Blue and Gold banquets and birthday parties, too!

Our assembly programs visit schools in all parts of Illinois. Whether you are in Granite City or Rockford, Peoria or Cairo, Rock Island or Skokie or anywhere else in the great state of Illinois, Mobile Ed's great school assembly performers are available to come and get your kids excited about science, history, creative writing and a multitude of other curriculum based areas. Mobile Ed's educational school assemblies and science assemblies have been popular with Chicago schools since our company first began more than thirty five years ago.

We're bringing back everyone's favorite science assemblies such as the SkyDome PlanetariumThe Earth Dome, and The Magic of Science. No year is complete without a visit from one of our historical figures, like Abraham LincolnThomas Alva Edison, or Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. To satisfy your school's STEM/STEAM requirements, we also have our mobile hands-on museums, Kidz Science Safari and STEAM Museum, packed with interaction, high-tech demonstrations, and lots of fun.

Take a look at all of the assemblies in Illinois this year below. Then, call 800-433-7459 or email your regional representative to find out what assemblies are still available in Illinois.
