A Time For ScienceA Time For Science
ATFS was founded by John and Nancy Bray, who are committed to enhancing science education and literacy in the Eastern Region of North Carolina. Their passion and investments into A Time for Science over the years have now firmly established this organization as a resource to the community as an independent nonprofit. Although the organization is now operating under a vibrant Board of Directors and dedicated staff, John and Nancy’s motto remains, and that is to get people “Experiencing Nature- Doing Science-Having Fun”.
