The Sense-it app is now available for downloading in the Google Play store. It will appear when typing “Sense-it” in the search box. The app gives access to smartphone or tablet sensors. It can be used to check the type and hardware model of Android devices’ sensors and view the recording the sensors generate in a graphical way. The app has been designed to assist young people in collecting, visualizing, and storing data when implementing science investigations and it is now linked to the new nQuire-it platform at www.nquire-it.org.
The first nQuire Workshop with young people took place at Sheffield UTC, in Sheffield on the 20th November 2013. The focus of the workshop was to test and evaluate a new science toolkit with young people and give them the opportunity to propose science investigations using the toolkit. This workshop is part of the broader nQuire aim to design and develop a set of open access tools for scientific investigation for young people.
