Our Impact

Your support is crucial to spectrUM's efforts to provide barrier-free access to hands-on science education. Big Night raises funds to support:

  • Reopening EmPower Place at the Missoula Food Bank & Community Center, providing enriching learning opportunities for families experiencing food insecurity.
  • Providing totally free admission to our award-winning science museum, which has expanded its hours to be open 40 hours a week for all
  • Science on Wheels, a traveling science museum that reaches rural and tribal communities across the state of Montana.
  • Free field trips and bus transport for Title 1 schools in Missoula and our neighboring communities.
  • Scholarships for students to access spectrUM’s summer camps.
  • “Science Bytes” on the Flathead Reservation, embedding hands-on science at free summer meal sites.
  • The Bitterroot Summer of Science, which brings free STEM programming to communities throughout Ravalli County.
