MONTGOMERY, ALA. – MGMWERX has extended the submission period for the new design challenge with a focus on facility innovation. The Education Facility Redesign for Innovative Learning challenge will remain open for submissions till 11:59PM on April 6th.

“We want to bring innovative ideas to the interior design of Air Force educational classrooms used for supporting Professional Military Education (PME) and student training,” explained Eric Gerritson, MGMWERX Innovation and Collaboration Principal. “Specifically, this challenge addresses redesigning  classrooms and associated offices, auditoriums, and circulation spaces on various Air Force bases and their PME schools.”

For Phase 1, MGMWERX is looking for designs that provide students the ability to easily shift between different modes of learning. Ideally, submissions should consider strategies for zoning and allocating classrooms and associated office spaces. Solution providers could display this through a room layout via sketch, word document, or perhaps a PowerPoint presentation with an accompanying white paper.

If your submission is selected, your concept could be applied as a school design template for both the Enlisted and Officer training classrooms throughout the entire Air Force.

MGMWERX facilitates challenges to assist the Air University in finding solutions for the Air Force by acting as a mediator between the Air University and the non-military experts and their suggested solutions.  Anyone can submit ideas to these challenges. The MGMWERX Design Challenge formula presents the opportunity for individuals, startups, small businesses, large enterprises, academics, and research labs to connect with Air Force personnel.  Ultimately, the challenges managed by MGMWERX allow Air University to maximize its potential by teaming its own experts with expert innovators at the non-military level.  The comradery between military and non-military results in the best overall performances by the Air Force.
