Flexidata – a school-friendly database program

It’s good to know about ‘databases’ if you’re a scientist – not least cos having a means to handle lots of data is a likely task in the job. Not that we’re required to do that in the science curriculum not that there’s much time for it and besides Excel would do a lot of the key tasks in many schools. Those who teach IT in primary and secondary schools might like to know that Flexible Software’s Flexdata just notched up another version. When we first saw it a few years back it was an accomplished piece of work – it could handle and graph everything we wanted and it was not too business orientated to lose the plot about what teaching ‘databases’ was all about. If that’s your line of work, I hope the link is useful Flexible Software
