MANKATO, Minn., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AirSpace Minnesota today announced the Go Boldly Challenge at the Minnesota Science Teachers Association Conference on Science Education in Mankato, Minn. Created to celebrate Minnesota's remarkable contributions to technology innovation through aerospace and aviation, AirSpace Minnesota is committed to inspiring a new generation by showing what's possible when dreams and skills connect.

The Go Boldly Challenge will recognize Minnesotans of all ages who have achieved something extraordinary related to aviation or aerospace.
