About the Author
Jamel Thomas-Joyce is a 10-year-old Columbus, OH resident. He's an author, artist & illustrator. He loves sports & science almost as much as he likes to read & draw. We wrote Jamel's Deep Sea Adventure to share his summer trip with youth worldwide. He'd only imagined adventures before this quest of their own. We realized he knows more about his family's history & culture than most adults. His goal was to introduce students who have never been to an aquarium, or ocean & don't have money to travel to the deep sea creatures. Here's the opportunity to learn about the sea & fun practice for their annual test. We use the STEM approach in this technology integrated, creative problem solving activity book.
