Science and technology have been part of people's daily life. People started embracing the jump speed of both scientific and technological advancements for decades now. As of the moment, Google has offered numerous tools and applications that make consumers' lives better. This is definitely another era for technological advancement.

According to The Verge, Google's new Android application, the Science Journal, allows users to do scientific research on the users' phones. This Google's new Android application will definitely be a very good help and springboard when it comes to scientific field experiments.

Science Journal records and measures data in real time. Afterward, it shifts the data into readable and comprehensive graphs and charts. Furthermore, this Android application stores several projects and uses tools.

These tools -- e.g., accelerometer and sound meters -- are useful to gather information for the users' projects. Google stated that this application will work with people in the science community. In addition, Google is also selling external sensors, microcontrollers and other hands-on learning kits that are useful for any experiment or research to accompany the application.

According to Beta News, Google's Science Journal Android application is a digital notebook for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education. Reports say that it is important to create ways to hone the interest in STEM education at a young age; that is why, Google made such move toward this advancement.

With such move, it ensures that it will empower kids and anybody who uses this application to be the best scientist in themselves. Furthermore, through this application, it will cultivate curiosity and spark a lifelong interest in learning, since more hands-on projects are being done. This application is, however, for Android users only. There is no iOS version yet. As a result, those who have Android devices are the only ones who can use this.
