Smartphones now have got their real identity with the launch of a new app known as ‘Science Journal’. This application is developed by Google’s making & science strategy. This application is capable of using the sensors of an Apple phone to gather the data.
Experiments can be done by gathering the data from the device’s sound, light and motion sensors. The data can be recorded over the time, store it and analyze the data graphically. This application turns even more interesting while the users experiment it in the museums to analyze sound, speed, and the colors.
This application is surely a strong data logger which has the capability to record the measurements taken by the inbuilt microphone, ambient light sensor, and gyroscope or any external sensors connected with Bluetooth in order to expand its reach.
Data can be easily be recorded over the period of time and can easily be visually analyzed over a graphic image. It will also provide with the notes and the pictures of the new experiment while comparing it with the past ones.
This application is proving to be a great source of motivation for the children for developing the interest in science studies. Certainly, an Apple phone is beyond from just having games and chat messengers.
This application is helping the students to explore the process of learning in a completely new way. Even the teachers are happy to recommend this application to their students for the science projects.
Science Journal has been revamped as a digital science notebook especially for iOS platform, it is easy to launch a sensor while making a note of what exactly is supposed to be recorded i.e. sound or motion etc. which can be compared to the other experiments.
There are namely three types of sensors available which can be used naming linear accelerometer, magnetometer and a compass in case the device has a hardware along with. It is a great opportunity to explore the world around with the help of your phone device. This technological revolution is certainly going to make more wonders in the world of science and experiments.
Google is continuously working to expand and refine the functionality of the application with more interactive features for Apple phones. They are in the process of developing certain external kits which will include a variety of microcontrollers and a few other sensors.
Developed by Google this application is a boon for iOS platform, it helps to visualize the data in a sorted graphical format which is simple to understand and use.
