Honeywell And NASA Celebrate 10th Anniversary Of Collaboration With FMA Live! Educational Series

Stocks in this article: HON

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) and NASA are celebrating 10 years of collaboration with FMA Live! Forces in Motion a newly expanded, award-winning, hip-hop physics education program that inspires middle school students to learn and enjoy math and science in a compelling, fun and memorable way. The popular show is in high demand, having been performed before more than 350,000 students at 933 middle schools in all 48 contiguous U.S. states, as well as in Mexico and Canada. The spring tour launches in Houston, TX this week.

While the United States still has the world's largest pool of scientists and engineers, that lead is declining. In recent world rankings from the National Science Board, the United States lagged in science and math performance with high school students showing below-average math skills and ranking 26th in the world.

"Like many technology-based companies, Honeywell is concerned that too few U.S. students possess the necessary math and science skills to compete for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) jobs in the 21st-century," said Tom Buckmaster, President, Honeywell Hometown Solutions. "When it comes to STEM areas of study, early access and understanding is crucial in helping get students on track for college and career success. The FMA Live! program is designed to do this - and to ultimately inspire future innovators with a teaching style that is modern, memorable and makes it fun for students."

"Each child needs to understand that a solid foundation in STEM can open doors they may not have known existed. Getting them excited is the first step – from there, the career possibilities are endless," said Dr. Roosevelt Y. Johnson, NASA Acting Associate Administrator for Education. "This has been a great collaboration between NASA and Honeywell, and I'm proud of how many students we've engaged through FMA Live! over the past 10 years."

Over the course of 10 weeks, the show, under the direction of Honeywell Hometown Solutions, will reach 30 public, private and military-connected middle schools in nine central and southeast U.S. states, including stops in: Houston, TX; Baton Rouge, LA; Hattiesburg, MS; Atlanta, GA; Huntsville, AL; Nashville, TN; Pulaski, VA; Columbia, SC; and Jacksonville, Miami and West Palm Beach, FL. A similar schedule is slated for the western part of the United States this fall.

About FMA Live!

Using live actors, hip-hop songs, music videos, interactive scientific demonstrations and video interviews with scientists and engineers from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the show teaches Newton's Three Laws of Motion and Universal Laws of Gravity.
