SpectrUM Discovery Area

November 14, 2019

The University of Montana SpectrUM discovery area is collaborating with the Missoula Public Library and the Children’s Museum to come together under a single roof. It is working to increase accessibility within the community.    

The hands-on science center is designed to promote learning within the public. It is instructed by UM students and other members of the community to inspire the youth to pursue higher education and careers in science.

Caitlin Ervin, the museum program coordinator at SpectrUM, says that this move the library will help the center be more accessible to the public. Ervin says in addition, they hope this will engage the program more with the university by providing a live lab for science students to work.

SpectrUM hopes to be open in its new place this coming summer.
