Is it correct? Gifts inspired by / from science. From or by?

If science inspired the gifts, then in the passive sentence, the gifts were inspired by science, so the answer is "by". What you might be confusing it with is that the inspiration for something can come from somewhere, but in this case, you need the noun "inspiration".
