How to Record Data with Google’s Science Journal App


To record data in Google Science Journal,
open any sensor in meter or graph mode. Set up the phone for your experiment, and
press the record button at the bottom of the screen to start recording. Perform your experiment, then press the record
button again to stop recording. You may need to crop your data, for example,
if there is noise at the beginning and end from when you were handling the phone. To do this, select the three dots in the upper
right, select crop, drag the two sliders to select the region of data you want to keep,
and then press the check mark. You can also add notes to your data using
the note icon, and rename the trial using the pencil icon. Finally, you can export the data by selecting
the three dots in the upper right and selecting export. You can then send a comma separated variable,
or CSV, file, to your computer using email or Google Drive. If some of these options do not appear for
you, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app, and make sure you enter your birthday. The export option is not available to users
under thirteen. To learn more about the different sensors
