Last year, Google expelled a fun app that let extraordinary kids perform a handful of scholarship experiments by monitoring light, sound and suit using a smartphone. Following some feedback, the app has been updated with a some-more open-ended approach, permitting kids to simply record and explain the universe around them. (It’s also on iOS now.)
“We listened from teachers that it would be even some-more useful if the app could take records and make observations for scholarship experiments,” wrote Amit Deutsch, program manager for Science Journal, in a blog post. “So we’ve redesigned Science Journal as a digital scholarship notebook.”
It’s easier now to simply launch a sensor, note down what you’re recording (a bird song, an object’s motion, etc.), and then review it to other experiments. There also are 3 new sensors you can use: a linear accelerometer, a magnetometer and a compass, presumption your device has the hardware to start with.
You could test the G-forces in your automobile while you navigate by principal directions, and… do something with magnets at the same time. (Preferably from the newcomer seat.)
There also are numerous new activities for those who wish something some-more guided. Google partners with universities and preparation startups to create little projects you can do at home or in the classroom. (If you’re looking for the new ones, maybe equivocate those that use a Nexus One as their instance phone.)
You can download the app for free on Android or iOS.
