The award-winning science education program FMA Live! begins its nationwide tour at Howard University in Washington, Sept. 20-21. Aimed at middle school students, FMA Live! is a collaboration between NASA and Honeywell International, Morris Township, N.J.

Named for Sir Isaac Newton’s Second Law (Force equals Mass times Acceleration), FMA Live! encourages students to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This educational effort uses live performers, hip-hop music, videos and interactive scientific demonstrations to teach students about Newton’s Law of Motion and the Universal Law of Gravity.
