Honeywell and NASA partnered in 2003 to create FMA Live!. The program is part of Honeywell Hometown Solutions, Honeywell's community outreach program. Named for Sir Isaac Newton's Second Law (Force = Mass x Acceleration), FMA Live!
uses live performers, music, videos and interactive scientific demonstrations to teach students about Newton's Laws of Motion and the Universal Law of Gravity - topics identified by the National Science Education Standards as key learning objectives for grades 5-8.
By making science fun and relevant to students’ everyday lives, FMA Live! aims to inspire students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. Show highlights include:
- Interactive science demos: a Velcro wall, hover chair; "extreme" wrestling, dragster cars and rocket launchers
- Original music and dance moves performed by professional actors
- Music videos and rockumentary about the live of Sir Isaac Newton
- Involvement of students, teacher and school administrators in the demonstrations
