Science Journal for Collecting and Recording Observations

Google’s Science Journal transforms students’ mobile devices into a science laboratory, encouraging students to conduct authentic experiments, collect and visualize data, and record observations from the world around them. The app, which is available for iOS, Android, and most Chromebooks, offers a suite of tools to measure light, motion, sound, G-forces, and more. A note-taking feature is integrated into the experimental timeline. Young scientists can compare results and set up triggers for their recordings. The app offers ample opportunities for open-ended exploration. Students and teachers can also choose from a list of free interdisciplinary experiments, developed through university and educational startup partners, which include media-rich, step-by-step instructions. Among the partners are the California Academy of Sciences, the New York Hall of Science, and Science Buddies. The experiments may be filtered and browsed by level, equipment, author, duration, and features. Cost: Free
