On March 17th local Mankato East High School Science teacher, Julia Battern, and Mankato Energy Center Operations Manager, Michael Innes, will start their nearly two-week expedition to Antarctica.  


Last year, Onward Energy held a competition to select one Mankato-based community educator and one Mankato-based Onward employee to participate in a March 2022 expedition to Antarctica hosted by the 2041 Foundation.
