Welcome to the Mobile Mining Experience website

We proudly offer some of the highest quality fun and educational programs and experiences found or offered anywhere with a single goal, inspiring "for kids of all ages" in the sciences! So, it’s not surprising that so many believe we are Maryland's and Northern Virginia's top choice for fun & educational Gem Mining, Geode Cracking, and Geology related programs and experiences!  Every program and activity we run has educational elements carefully designed into them. But, we make sure these programs are so much fun; few even realize they are learning things too. That’s not by mistake, it’s by design and it works!

Would you like to find real gemstonesDeveloping and running educational programs of this quality is very costly to do, but it provides true value and benefits that simply cannot be measured monetarily alone... There can always be cheaper options out there, but you would have a tough time finding a company that offers more value or that can do it better!

MME Mission Statement:
To provide fun & educational programs, products, and experiences with the goal of inspiring "kids of all ages" to explore and learn more about the sciences and to better educate the public on the importance of mining (when done right) and the many products and services it provides us...

Your contributions and support is both needed and very much appreciated!

MME Rock Cycle case
With your help we will not only be able to reach far more "kids of all ages" and further our mission, but we also will be able to do it even better with new and improved equipment, programs, displays, and materials. We already are making a difference by inspiring "kids of all ages" in science. Yet, we have barely even scratched the surface of what we plan to offer. Just imagine how much more we could do with your help. We hope we can count on your contributions and support to help make this all happen.  Please see our “How you can help” page of our website for more information

MME geode cracking 2Geode Cracking Programs & Activities:  There is just something special about cracking open one of these rather ordinary to flat out boring looking rocks and quickly discover the treasures hidden inside. MME geode crackingWe offer several different geode cracking programs and geode cracking as just an activity

 Our programs involve a interactive lecture where we review the differences between rocks and minerals, the rock cycle, geode formation theories, and much more with the opportunity to win prizes for answering questions correctly. Then we move onto the hands-on activity where each participant gets to crack open their geode safely and effectively with our custom built geode cracking machines. The geode, the prizes, the great experiences, and a wealth of new knowledge is theirs to keep.  This program has quickly become of favorite for many schools, and because we typically run them indoors, they are available year round  learn more...
