Alphabet, Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is once again taking its game to a whole new level with its experiment-friendly app. Called Science Journal, the app helps users keep data real-time and make necessary charts and graphs out of them.
Staying true to its commitment to innovation, the technology giant acknowledges the need to develop a keen interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and most especially among children of young age.
Chris DiBona, Google Making & Science and Open Source Director, explained that Science Journal should help bring out the inner scientist among its users.
The app is capable of storing, managing, and running various projects without compromising efficient tracking. Furthermore, Science Journal can acquire data over Bluetooth from other devices such as Arduino computers. It also comes with helpful tools that make data collection, observation, interpretation, and drawing conclusion more convenient and even more exciting. One can set reminders, write notes, and upload photos to further help complete an experiment.
Science Journal Learning Activity Kits
Google has provided a set of guidelines and activities that users can try with Science Journal. In collaboration with Exploratorium, a leading science education entity, Google has also come up with creative hands-on learning kits for the app. Included in these learning activity kits are craft supplies, microcontrollers, and sensors.
For parents who wish to imbue scientific skills and science curiosity among their children, the app may be appropriate. The app is exclusively available on Android. No iOS version is available as of the moment.
