Learn to Use Google's Science Journal App

Google's free Science Journal app gives students a full set of measuring and notetaking tools for their STEM projects and explorations. Learn how to use the Science Journal app with Science Buddies' how-to guides and tutorials.

To help students and educators make the most of Google's free Science Journal app, Science Buddies has created a guided multi-part walkthrough tutorial that provides an overview of the app interface and general use. After reading the two introductory posts in this series, consult the tutorial for the specific sensor you are using for additional information, screenshots, and examples.

Note: The Google Science Journal app is no longer available. Projects and Lesson Plans at Science Buddies that used the app have been revised to use other sensor apps for mobile devices that have similar functionality. The information below may still be valuable as a starting point for working with sensor-based apps, but please refer to your app for specific information about accessing and using sensor tools.
