Steve Bayes, Ph.D.

Science Instruction Specialist

Steve began his work at GMRI in January 2021, with our educational team, developing science curriculum and professional development programs for teachers. As a former middle school and high school teacher in California, his passion lies in bringing authentic science experiences to students and helping teachers build excitement and enthusiasm around science.

Steve received a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Colby College and a Ph.D. in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management from the University of California at Berkeley where he studied entomology and the movement ecology of agricultural pests.

Like many folks here at GMRI, Steve was built to be outdoors, ideally near water, where he enjoys camping, hiking, swimming, bug-hunting, and designing science experiments with his two young daughters.
