Biosketch: 'I don’t know all the answers- that’s why I keep asking questions.' Tangible learner. Dangerously curious. Valerie Bayes holds a degree in Biological Sciences from University of Missouri-Columbia and a Master's Degree from Lindenwood University in Teaching with certification in secondary biology. She serves as Monsanto’s STEM Engagement Lead in St. Louis, Missouri. Growing up Valerie often found her curiosity getting her into trouble. From building treehouses out of recycled materials to jumping off the roof with an umbrella – asking “why” and “how” she has always been the curious type asking about phenomena and testing hypothesis. She is a strong advocate for the scientific method. Her work focuses on creating authentic agricultural experiences demonstrating the sophistication and integral nature of STEM through agriculture.
