The Groundbreakers from University of Nebraska are the winners of the 2019 Big Ten Student Design Challenge! The design proposal of team members Weston Ellerbrake, Daniel Kruger, Ariana Osten, and Eliza Woodside edged out the entries from the other two teams in the finals — Golden Bucks from Ohio State University and Team Forward from the
University of Wisconsin.
The three teams traveled to Herman Miller headquarters in Michigan for a two day workshop where they pitched their designs to a team of academics and professionals. The teams received feedback on their designs and polished their proposals for final judging. Congratulations to all of the teams for representing their universities, and good luck to The Groundbreakers as they continue to work with Herman Miller during the construction phase throughout the next few months to move their design from concept to reality!
