How does Google locate your search results within a fraction of a second? What allows Amazon to search millions of CDs or movies and deliver information to you instantaneously? How do Internet shopping sites like American Eagle Outfitters or Hollister Co. dynamically retrieve products, prices, and availability upon request? The answer is databases. Learn the power of databases while searching through the York Fair's database of animals. Not only will you learn about databases, you will get the opportunity to discover new things about the different animals, from cavies to rabbits. You'll go home with a CD of your own database and exciting information about the furry friends at the York Fair.
