I'll be teaching a class on "dynamic websites" to some designers. What's the best (and free) way to get them playing around with MySQL?

If I were teaching one person about LAMP, I'd spend the time getting everything up and running on their Mac. But a) we'll be in a computer lab so I'm not sure what kind of permissions I'll have on the Macs. b) I'd rather the projects be available online.
What's the best free and hosted MySQL/PHP setup? Is there one? We wouldn't need a ton of bandwidth or space, but we'd really like a database.
(and I'm open to alternate ideas, like teaching to a flat file database or something)
