Around the Air Force: Spark Tank, Adaptive Learning Software, Air Force Connect


HEY THERE EVERYONE,
I’M SENIOR AIRMAN ANGELO ROSARIO WITH
YOUR LOOK AROUND THE AIR FORCE. SIX AIRMEN WILL
PRESENT THEIR IDEAS TO SENIOR LEADERS
AT THIS YEAR’S SPARK TANK DURING
THE AIR WARFARE SYMPOSIUM IN
ORLANDO, FLORIDA, NEXT MONTH. THE SIX WERE CHOSEN
FROM 200 AIRMEN WHO SUBMITTED IDEAS
VIA THE AIR FORCE IDEATION PLATFORM. SPARK TANK IS AN
EVENT THAT OFFERS ENTREPENEURS THE
CHANCE TO HAVE THEIR IDEAS
IMPLEMENTED ACROSS THE UNITED STATES
AIR FORCE AND TO REACH OUTSIDE
AGENCIES THAT CAN OFFER ASSISTANCE
AND RESOURCES FOR THEIR PROJECTS,
LIKE PERSONNEL OR FUNDING, TO CARRY
THEIR IDEAS FORWARD. YOU CAN CHECK OUT
