Keep Sparky Safe app
We've developed an augmented reality (AR) app suitable for primary school students. Sparky the dog helps students understand the dangers associated with electricity. They'll learn how to recognise common street electrical equipment and what to look for to know when it's damaged and unsafe.
The free app is available for download on Apple iOS devices. We’re working on the Android version of the app and will have it available soon.
Check out this handy factsheet that helps explain how to best use the app with your children.
