His pedagogical interest lies in empowering students to improve their STEM literacy. He strongly believes in real-world applications of science around the world. Whenever he is traveling, he takes photos and looks for examples of how science can explain interesting phenomena around the world. Whenever not in the classroom, Mr. Jamal is obsessed with Science and Technology, which is why he started the EduSciTech blog (www.pjamal.com) where he posts resources related to STEM.
