Honeywell And NASA STEM Education Event Visits 1,000th School
October 24, 2014
Honeywell and NASA are celebrating 10 years of collaboration with FMA Live! Forces in Motion, an award-winning, hip-hop physics education program that inspires middle school students to learn and enjoy math and science in a fun and memorable way. The popular show, which will visit its 1,000th school during this special tour, is in high demand, having been performed before 400,000 students in all 48 contiguous U.S. states, as well as in Mexico and Canada.
In recent world rankings from the National Science Board, the United States, which remains the world's largest pool of scientists and engineers, lags in science and math performance with high school students showing below-average math skills and ranking 26th in the world.
"As a technology-based company, Honeywell is devoted to equipping the next-generation of inspired students with the tools they will need to succeed in the U.S. job market, including skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)," said Tom Buckmaster, President, Honeywell Hometown Solutions. "FMA Live! provides students with early access to the types of programs that are crucial in developing competencies to keep students competitive throughout their academic and professional careers."
