Arduino Science Journal – an application that turns a smartphone into a science lab

Formerly sponsored by Google, this application is designed to conduct scientific research using a smartphone. It all comes down to recording and displaying a whole range of data that is collected directly from the sensors built into the smartphone…

As smartphones are equipped with a range of sensors and can be connected to additional external sensors, they become ideal devices that can be used to collect a bunch of data that can be analyzed later. The Arduino Science Journal is an application that will display the collected data from the sensors built into the smartphone and turn it into a kind of scientific diary.

The application itself is available in 45 languages ​​and is intended primarily for school children aged 10 to 18, and encourages the study of the world around them and performs a series of experiments that should interest the target age group in science.

All data can be collected and recorded in real time, and later it is possible to analyze it without hindrance, just as scientists would do. The specificity is the fact that the Arduino platform is supported, which means that the possibilities, as well as the available sensors, can be further expanded and add a new dimension to everything.

In any case, the Arduino Science Journal is a great application for all those who want to enter the world of STEM together with their children, learn more about the world around us, but also master the skill of analyzing scientific data and this way of thinking.
