MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) and NASA are bringing FMA Live! Forces in Motion, an award-winning hip-hop educational experience, to Oklahoma this fall; marking the 25 th tour of the program since its inception in 2004. This week, FMA Live! has performances in Tulsa ( George Washington Carver Middle School), Oklahoma City (Southridge Junior High School) and Moore (Central Junior High School).
Since the program's 2004 launch, FMA Live! has traveled nearly 110,000 miles to more than 1,200 schools and performed for 460,000 students in 48 contiguous U.S. states, as well as in Mexico and Canada. The one-of-a-kind show incorporates hip-hop music, dancers, student volunteers, and on-stage, interactive science experiments to demonstrate how physics is part of everyday life. "The astronauts of 2025 are sitting in our middle schools today," said Donald James, NASA's associate administrator for Education "There is no better time to get students excited about STEM topics. Alongside Honeywell, we have created a program that provides students with an early look into the career possibilities that exist in these fields." Each performance focuses on Newton's law of universal gravitation and three laws of motion. FMA Live! is named after Newton's second law of motion [Force equals Mass times Acceleration] and uses music videos and interactive scientific demonstrations to teach and inspire students to pursue STEM careers.
