FirePoint internship showcases under-represented STEM talent

The FirePoint Innovations Center at Wichita State wrapped up the second year of its Future Innovators Program, an engineering internship opportunity that provides some of America’s brightest engineers from historically under-represented communities the opportunity to work on cutting-edge projects and programs that directly support the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Center and the Department of Defense.

The program is a partnership between FirePoint, AvMC, Tuskegee University and Prairie View A&M University, connecting students from historically Black colleges and universities to internship opportunities with NIAR, Spirit AeroSystems and Textron Aviation in the Wichita Area.
