NASA, Honeywell Bring Hip Hop Physics Tour to Los Angeles Schools

[image-51]NASA and Honeywell are inviting media to participate in the west coast kickoff of the 10th anniversary celebration of their FMA Live! Forces in Motion tour. The touring show will visit Los Angeles area schools the week of Oct. 5.

The award-winning, action-packed show combines NASA content, hip-hop music, dancers, larger-than-life demonstrations and audience participation in a way that engages middle school students and teaches them the basic principles of physics. The fall tour is making its way down the U.S. west coast and adding to the more than 400,000 students and teachers who are alumni of the FMA Live! experience so far.

The collaboration reaches a significant milestone during the Los Angeles portion of the tour, reaching its 1,000th school while visiting Markham Middle School. Senior officials from NASA and Honeywell, as well as local government and education, will be on hand to mark the occasion.

Media interested in attending one of the 45-minute performances should contact Amy Sharman at 206-307-6990 or asharman@waggeneredstrom.com in advance to expedite access to these schools and confirm show times. All times below are PDT.
