MEDIA ADVISORY M14-153
NASA, Honeywell Bring Hip Hop Physics Tour to Greater Seattle Area

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 tour show will visit three Seattle-area schools during the week of Sept. 15.

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 will make its way down the Pacific states in celebration of a significant milestone for this education outreach program: reaching 400,000 students and 1,000 schools in the last decade.

Media interested in attending one of the 45-minute performances should contact Amy Sharman, 415-547-7031 or asharman@waggeneredstrom.com in advance to expedite access to these schools and to confirm show times. All times below are PDT.
