Google launches Science Journal to help perform simple experiments

– Google on Sunday, May 22 launched Science Journal, an Android app that helps you perform (and comment on) simple science experiments, Engadget says.

The app can record light, motion and sound levels using only your phone’s sensors, letting you study everything from a light bulb’s brightness to the acceleration in a jump, the technology news website says.

You can connect Arduino-powered sensors, and Google is partnering with Exploratorium to offer starter kits to help budding scientists. Science Journal is free.
