Science Journal is the free digital science notebook brought to you by Google. It transforms your device into a pocket-size science tool that encourages students to explore their world. As they conduct eye-opening experiments, they’ll record observations and make new, exciting discoveries.
The great thing with the Science Journal app is that it works on Android and iOS devices so 99% of students can use it to record their observations and make exciting discoveries. Whether it’s measuring acceleration whilst on a swing or measuring the sound intensity of the nearby roads, there is a whole host of features in this app.
With the Science Journal app, you can:
- Measure light, sound, acceleration, air pressure and more using your phone’s built-in sensors.
- Take notes and photos to document your science experiments. More note types coming soon!
- Connect to external sensors using selected Bluetooth-enabled Arduino and Vernier devices.
- Access your experiments across your devices using Google Drive.
- Export recorded sensor data as CSV files.
- Create automated triggers for recording data and taking notes.
- Use sonification to hear the movement of your graphs.
