Google redesigns Science Journal app; Now available on iOS too

By : |October 26, 2017 0

Google has announced that it is bringing some changes to the Science Journal app, which was launched last year to let kids perform science experiments using only a smartphone. The updated Science Journal app will have an open-ended approach, allowing kids to simply record videos and annotate around the world.

Amit Deutsch, Program manager for Science Journal, wrote in a blog post, “We heard from teachers that it would be even more useful if the app could take notes and make observations for science experiments.” He said that they have designed Science Journal app as a digital science notebook.

With the updated version of the app, one can easily launch a sensor, note down what you are recording and then compare it to other experiments. There also are three new sensors you can use: a linear accelerometer, a magnetometer, and a compass, assuming your device has the hardware, to begin with. You can also test G-forces in your car while you navigate by cardinal directions and do something with the magnets in your car.

The company also said partners like the California Academy of Sciences and the New York Hall of Science have released new activities for the app. Activities include things like the “Balloon-Powered Car Challenge” and “Motion Mania: Applying Physics to Hula-Hooping.”

Google has made the Science Journal app available on both Android and iOS.
