When it comes to applications for Android smartphones, Google Play Store is the place where users can find anything and everything they need, whether it’s a paid or free app. It’s also the place where Google likes to surprise users and release interesting or educational applications. The company has recently released Science Journal, an application for users to conduct scientific experiments on their smartphones.
Aside from the highly anticipated messaging application Allo and video call app Duo, Google also released Science Journal during the Google I/O 2016. The application was just recently posted on Google Play Store and it also has a dedicated website where users can learn how to navigate and conduct experiments using the free application Science Journal.

Users would need to provide the app with some information, like their birthday, before they can actually get started. The application makes use of the smartphone’s sensors in order to make various calculations based on the user’s surroundings.

Calculate brightness, sound intensity and more
Science Journal calculates a light bulb’s brightness and displays the amount of light, measured in lux , reaching the ambient light sensor. Sound intensity can also be calculated and displayed in decibels. The application activates the phone’s sound sensor or microphone and displays measurements on the screen.

It also comes with the option to calculate the acceleration of the phone to the left or right, forward or backward. The application records data, chart it out on graphs, keep track of various experiments and even make predictions for future tests. The dedicated website shows information on the best ways to gather data, ways to use sensors, measurements and tutorials on how to build even wind spinners.

Science Journal app was designed for creating multiple projects and it comes with the option to connect Arduino-powered sensors. Google is currently partnering with Exploratorium to offer starter kits to help scientists.

Google also announced its intention to work with the science community in order to improve the application and its capabilities. The search giant also intends to open source the application this summer.
