spectrUM Science Store

spectrUM has a science store, and often students like to bring money to purchase items. Some of our most popular items are a dollar or less, so if they are interested, they might want to bring some pocket change.
Please call (406) 728-STEM (7836) or fill out this form to arrange a field trip.
