Honeywell and NASA team up to teach kids science and math


South Bend, Ind. They say the best way for students to learn is with interactive experiences. And Wednesday a group of hip-hop dancers were showing how the laws of physics works.

The company Honeywell and NASA have teamed up to tour the country to teach kids about the importance of math and science.

Wednesday three dancers performed a show to demonstrate the basic principles of physics. It's called Forces in Motion and is designed to get students excited about careers engineering.

“It is great fun for kids,” says Margaret Shaller the principal at Jackson Intermediate. “It's learning in a fun interactive musical way. The kids just enjoy their video clips and then there are dancers that explain the video clips and then they use students volunteers and teacher volunteers to demonstrate to various aspects of Newton's law.”

The show teaches Newton's three laws of motion and universal laws of gravity.
