Dinosaur Database

Last week some Year 3 and 4 students came into the Academy from Pensans Community Primary School to explore databases.

Using a FileMaker database of dinosaurs developed by Simon Elliott, our Director of Digital Technologies, the students explored the information and learnt how to search, sort, update and add new dinosaurs from the Natural History Museum’s own DinoLibrary website.
“Making databases interesting can seem a challenge”, Simon Elliott said, “but everyone loves dinosaurs.”
