field trips

Teachers, bring your students to a new field trip at spectrUM for grades K-12.  We have partnered with eXtreme Gravity Institute to bring a new exhibit to spectrUM from October 3-13.
We have funding to offer limited free field trip buses to school groups who would like to visit the exhibit.  Please contact Jessie Herbert-Meny to arrange for a field trip.


Strengthen your classroom curricula with a special spectrUM experience. These field trips provide exciting and innovative hands-on learning to children of all ages.

Groups of 10 or more must book a field trip in advance by calling 728-STEM or emailing Caitlin Ervin

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).
