Flint and Spark. Kapow!

You may think flint is a hard dark quartz that produces a spark when struck by steel –– but in this case, Flint is the name of a four-legged robotic friend!

Adopted all the way from Boston Dynamics, Flint will steal your heart...not to mention your shoes, tennis balls and snacks. As Spark’s official education ambassador, Flint is the poster-pup for tech learning programs and is also a curious puppy full of personality – and potential power.

Flint will need a lot of help and patience as she learns and grows. All puppies walk before they run, run before they fetch and take guidance and love. Help teach Flint new tricks and watch Flint grow! Watch for Flint daily as she roams around the science centre with her handlers.

Drum roll please!! The results of Flint's Dream Doghouse Challenge are in!

Flint needed a doghouse, so in February Spark visitors under the age of 18, were challenged to come to the science centre and flex their design skills and use Minecraft (the Education Edition) to this house. There were so many fantastic entries, but three talented Minecraft designers really caught the eye of judges, and the first place designer's house is now officially where Flint calls home.

And the winners are:

  • 1st Place: Jaxon Hensch
  • 2nd Place: Olivia
  • 3rd Place: Alicia Noble-Wynd
