Over the past 21 years, Toyota has funded 1,197 innovative, community-based science projects with more than $9.7 million in direct grants through the Toyota TAPESTRY Grants for Science Teachers program. Toyota TAPESTRY awardees received grants of up to $10,000 each to implement innovative, community-based science projects in environmental science, physical science, and integrating literacy and science. A large number of these projects expanded to include multiple schools and communities.
