SpectrUM brings in camp for kids
MISSOULA, Mont. -

School's out and that means SpectrUM Discovery Area is in for the week.

SpectrUM Discovery Area is an interactive science museum. They have locations at the University of Montana campus and in downtown Missoula. It's a science program that provides hands-on experience.

22 kids attended Monday at the Skaggs building at the University of Montana to learn about space. They learned the scale model of the solar system, solar observing, made stomp rockets and aliens, and went into a star lab to look at constellations.

"We get to learn cool stuff and everything," said SpectrUM Space Day student Liam Rose.  

"It's a great opportunity for when kids are not in school and to still be learning in a fun environment and be outside. They also get to learn something that interests them," said lead educator at SpectrUM Sara Feilzer.

SpectrUM will be doing camps for the rest of the week. All will be different.  'Art and Science Collide' and 'Hidden World of Technology' are just a coupl of the themes.

There are still spots open. Kids have to be ages 6 to 12. You can sign up your child by calling 406-728-STEM.
