Google Science Journal: a lab in your pocket

Great for summer learning!

Google’s Science Journal app transforms your mobile device into a little science laboratory, encouraging you to conduct authentic experiments, collect and visualize data and record observations from the world around them. Use it to enhance your learning in the field, and to facilitate your development as a citizen scientist.

It offers a suite of tools – tools to measure light, motion, sound, G-forces and more. Among the newer tools are a linear accelerometer, a magnetometer, and a compass. The note-taking feature is integrated into the experimental timeline and there’s a snapshot mode. Young scientists can compare results and set up triggers for their recordings.

While the app offers ample and exciting opportunities for open-ended exploration, you can also choose from a long list of free interdisciplinary experiments, developed through university and educational start-up partners, that include media-rich, step-by-step instructions. Among those partners are the California Academy of Sciences, the New York Hall of Science, and Science Buddies.

Experiments may be filtered and browsed by level, equipment, author, duration, and features. Science Journal will connect with many popular wireless sensors like Vernier.
