This webpage provides students informational text and interactive tools to explore what makes a database. Students will be introduced to basic database structures.
A database is a computerized system that makes it easy to search, select, and store information. Databases are used in many different places.
Your school might use a database to store information about attendance or to store pupils' and teachers' contact information. A database like this will probably be protected with a password to make sure that people’s personal information is kept safe. Your library might also use a database to keep track of which books are available and which are on loan.
