Google's new Science Journal phone app lets users collect and evaluate data, helping people find the science that's all around them.

The apps taps into the device's built-in sensors to record several kinds of information, like acceleration, sound, and ambient light. People can set up experiments where they can store specific sets of data and notes. The page for the app even provides a list of different activities for users to try out different functions—like recording different levels of light, monitoring motion, and finding sounds around you. It even gives you instructions to how to build a wind rotation device.
