Lakeland, FL, October 14, 2021 – We are excited to announce the ACE SkyLab Innovation Center Collegiate Internship and High School Junior Internship Programs. This scaffolded internship initiative offers future aerospace and aviation professional’s hands-on training and on the job experience in a laboratory setting. Here, interns and junior interns alike can engage, educate, and accelerate a top down mentorship model. With a thorough learning, understanding, and application of the variety of pathways through STEM, Aerospace, and Aviation, in alignment with collegiate goals ACE has set a mission to impact a variety of people and barriers to employment.


Studies indicate that this top-down model is highly effective in cultivating new staff for participating organizations by over 50%, and students that participate in this scaffolded model are over 60% more likely to choose a career in the field of their internship. To achieve maximum reciprocity for our collegiate interns and our CFAA Jr. interns, ACE and the ACE SkyLab Innovation Center will follow this 20/20 model of internships.    READ MORE HERE       MEDIA CONTACT:   Kerrie Baiz Marketing Manager 863-904-4002 EDUCATION CONTACT:   Robin Kirk Dean of Academic Affairs & Museum Sciences 863-904-6834       ABOUT SUN ‘N FUN FLY-IN.
