Science Journal App

Turn your phone into a pocket science lab. Targeted for students in grades 6–12, this Google app allows students to measure sound, light, and motion data in real time using the sensors in an Android phone or tablet. The sensors can record ambient light (lux), intensity of sound in decibels (dB), and acceleration of the phone moving in three planes (m/s2). The app includes several short “Getting Started” activities, including an experiment in which students build and test Wind Spinners to familiarize themselves with how the tool works. Once comfortable, students can design their own experiments and use the app to collect and annotate data.
