Science Journal

Science Journal transforms a device into a pocket-size science tool that encourages students to explore their world. As they conduct eye-opening experiments, they’ll record observations and make new, exciting discoveries.

Science Journal is a free app that allows students to measure experiments, jot down notes, document findings, and explore the world around them through the power of science. It can be a useful tool to integrate into activities and assignments you’ve already prepared, or you can choose over 70 experiments designed to open minds to new discoveries in many different subject areas. Because of the ability to follow record experiments on a mobile device and add external sensors, it encourages students to get out of their seats. Honored by AASL among the 2018 Best Apps for Teaching & Learning.
