The Science Journal app is a powerful new tool for anyone who wants to conduct a study with scientific data. This smartphone application makes use of a phone's built-in features, including the light sensor, microphone and accelerometer.

Googled worked with Exploratorium on the project, making it possible to turn the average phone into a hands-on learning device for predicting, observing and making sense of data. Within the app, users are able to carry out a number of trials, experiments and projects at a time, in order to ensure their results are able to be tried multiple times and in a number of ways for the sake of accuracy.

For even more control, Science Journal app users can also collect data from other devices like an Arduino computer via Bluetooth for greater exploration.
