Use the sensors in your mobile devices to perform science experiments. Science doesn’t just happen in the classroom or lab—tools like Science Journal let you see how the world works with just your phone.

Science Journal

Science Journal allows you to gather data from the world around you. It uses sensors to measure your environment, like light and sound, so you can graph your data, record your experiments, and organize your questions and ideas. It’s the lab notebook you always have with you.

What can I do with it?

We have partnered with educational institutions like the Exploratorium and the Tech Museum of San Jose to create a set of high quality learning activities that you can do with Science Journal on your phone and common household items. Some of them use external sensors connected to Arduinos running our open source Science Journal firmware.

What external sensors work with Science Journal?

Science Journal has an open API which allows other Android apps to advertise sensors and publish data to the app. Several companies have used this API to work with external sensors.

If you are use this API in your own app, please let us know so we can link to you here!

Science Journal also works out of the box with our open source Science Journal sensor firmware. It runs on 2 models of BLE equipped Arduinos.
