Google’s new Android app revamps the clipboard for scientific field experiments. The app, called Google Science Journal, measures and records data in real time, and then converts that data into easily readable graphs and charts.
Google Science Journal is a tool for doing science with your smartphone. You can use the sensors in your phone or connect to external sensors to conduct experiments on the world around you. Organize your ideas into projects, make predictions, take notes and collect data in multiple trials, then annotate and explore your results. It’s the lab notebook you always have with you.
Furthermore, the app even lets you store all the data into graphs and charts for better understanding of the research, and deriving the final conclusion. The Google Science Journal app has a simple interface, with easy-to-understand navigation buttons. There is a voice note-taking feature that allows you to take speech notes on-the-go. Google asserts that this app has been introduced to get kids engaged in developing and making products at an early age.
The app even lets you take notes interpret as well as organize notes on your observations. Google Science Journal app can record light, motion and sound levels using only your phone’s sensors, microphone or accelerometer and helps with prediction models on future tests. Google says it will work with people in the science community to continually improve the app.
