I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Use the sensors in your phone to measure and graph phenomena such as light, sound, and motion, or connect to external sensors via bluetooth to conduct experiments on the world around you. With the Science Journal app, you can:
• Measure light, sound, acceleration, air pressure, and more using your phone's built-in sensors.
• Take notes and photos to document your science experiments. More note types coming soon!
• Connect to external sensors using select Bluetooth-enabled Arduino and Vernier devices.
• Export recorded sensor data as CSV files.
