- 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.
