Join Flint, TELUS Spark Science Centre‘s resident robo-dog, to explore the world of robots and the systems that move them. Learn about what robots and humans have in common, and find out what it takes to teach a robot dog a brand new trick. Science topics in this demonstration include engineering, intelligence, and neural networks.

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-pooch for tech learning programs and is also a curious dog full of personality – and potential power. To learn more about Flint and where to see her all year round, visit sparkscience.ca/whats-on/flint.
