Igniting Innovation: North Carolina Esports Academy Participates in the 2023 Wings Over Wayne Air Show

North Carolina Esports Academy had the privilege of participating in an amazing opportunity…the 2023 Wings Over Wayne Air Show on May 20-21, held at the Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Wayne County.

STEM Showcase

One intriguing aspect of this year’s event was the inauguration of the STEM hangar, which proved to be a great addition, allowing a variety of units showcase various career paths available within the armed forces. Also, numerous FIRST robotics teams showed off an array of automations and technology, which provided a great opportunity to see things up close.

STEM Career Paths within the Military

The best thing about this year’s experience was the opportunity to see young kids and families get acquainted with fuure career opporunities they might not otherwise learn. As I have mentioned before, our current education system struggles to bridge the gap between learning in the classroom and applying what we learn to real life.
