WINGS: Workplace Immersion for New Generation Scientists

The First Flight WINGS program helps underserved population realize their potential in STEM programs. First Flight works with local educators to identify, qualify, and connect students with our member companies. We’re providing a smart, committed intern pool for our members, and expanding opportunities for real-world STEM application for our students.

“I think the biggest way WINGS helps NCCU students is that many of them have not had real world experience…they are trying to make a career decision from an emotional place or from what other people want them to do or what sounds good. WINGS gives them a direct on the job experience so they can see what it’s really like and this gives them a true way to judge a potential career path.”
