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 in mind, inspiring "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!

GTC/ 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...
