FMA Live! Newtonian Physics Show Visits 30 Northeastern U.S. Schools This Spring
February 27, 2015
The award-winning, hip-hop physics education program, FMA Live! Forces in Motion, is making its way to northeastern U.S. middle schools this spring. Aiming to inspire 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 400,000 students at 1,100 schools in all 48 contiguous U.S. states, as well as in Mexico and Canada, since its creation in 2004. The spring tour launches in Wilmington, Delaware, this week.
“Bringing FMA Live! to our school was one of my proudest moments of my teaching career,” beamed teacher Michelle Rose, after FMA Live! visited her Colorado middle school in 2014. “Honeywell brought a high quality, thought-provoking production for our students to experience, and reminded me why I love to teach!”
Over the course of 10 weeks, the show, will reach 30 public, private and military-connected middle schools in 10 states: Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. The program will return in the fall throughout the Midwestern region of the United States.
FMA Live!, which is sponsored by Honeywell Hometown Solutions in partnership with NASA, includes a comprehensive educational guide for teachers, including suggested lesson plans, videos, music and website content to help teach vital principles of physics and engineering.
