Tiffany Gray

Tiffany Gray started working at The National Center for Physical Acoustics (NCPA) as soon as she graduated from college in 2006. She decided she wanted to be able to play with all of the fun toys that were in the labs, so she worked there while going back to school and got her B.A. in Mathematics in 2012. This gave her the all-important STEM background and allowed her to do actual lab work and help out with field work.

In June of 2012 Tiffany and her boss, Dr. James Chambers, teamed up with The Center for Mathematics and Science Education to start a half-day engineering camp. This camp was so successful that it moved to a full day and they started working with Pre-College Programs. Tiffany now runs multiple weeks of Engineering Camp, STEM Camps for Boys and Girls, Programming Camps, and Gaming camps. During the academic year, Tiffany works with Pre-College Programs to help run their STEM-related academic competitions.
