I am happy to report that MicroExploreres has been awarded the Toyota Tapestry Grant for the 2010-2011 school year. This year, 50 large grants of up to $10,000 each and 20–32 mini-grants of up to $2,500 were awarded to K–12 teachers of science in the United States. The categories are Physical Science Application, Environmental Science Education, and Integrating Literacy and Science.
MicroExplorers has been awarded a large grant that will support an after-school science club at Aldo Leopold Elementary School in Madison, WI. The awards reception will take place at the National Science Teachers Association annual conference in Philadelphia in March of 2010.
This award will allow Leopold students the opportunity to expand the afterschool science clubs started in the 2009-10 school year.
