This lesson combines deep sea discoveries and the favorite childhood craft of one of our explorers. Check out this easy tutorial to craft your own decor inspired by the deep sea. Science Communication Fellow Katie Doyle remembered decorating her bedroom with similar creations and hopes to inspire others with this skill to advance hand-eye coordination, design skills, and creativity.
