Fox Blocks C-Zone

C-Zone STEM class

"There is nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in science and engineering, for a better tomorrow, for all of humankind" Bill Nye

Our Fox Blocks master builders class for students in Grades 5, 6 & 7. In C-Zone we look at a wide range of topics in quite fine detail, with larger projects that often take a week or two to complete.

In C-Zone we use complex building and technology resources including K'Nex, Lego, Little Bits, Fischertechnik, Arduino, & Mindstorms NXT to discover and understand our world around us.

Small class sizes, organised in developmentally appropriate age groupings, mean students don't just sit back and watch the action. Everyone takes part in building, designing, and discovering in this class. Each term contains a different theme, with a different core construction material used. We then mix and match, explore, design, test and evaluate as we go. Less screen time and more hands on engineering and creativity. 

Fox Blocks is a STEM program unique to Flying Fox Studios. Written by educators and engineers, it combines play based learning for the littlies, instructional learning for the older kids, and lots of teamwork! You will not find Fox Blocks in any other studio in Australia, as it has been especially designed for Brisbane kids by our Flying Fox Studios educational team.

Students must meet the correct age / grade requirements for enrolling in a class at Flying Fox Studios. Students enrolling in C-Zone during 2023 must be attending Grades 5, 6 and 7 in 2023.This is our standard policy across all classes, programs, and age groups.

Harnessing Hydraulics

Are you ready to increase the pressure on engineering?

Each week this term, we will build Lego or Fisher Technik models and investigate real-life pneumatic and hydraulic functions.

We'll watch short videos of machines in action and compare them to our models as we pump up our understanding of flow, PSI, control, energy, and much more.

Can you handle the pressure?

It's Easy Being Green

In a world where natural resources are dwindling and the pressure on the environment is ever increasing, the call to be 'green' is now greater than ever before.
But what does it mean to be 'green'?

Harnessing the power of the sun, wind, and water, we can become cleaner and more efficient. This term, we will be experimenting with green energy as we put our natural resources to work for us in a clean (and green) way.

We will build some simple machines using K'Nex and Lego, connect them to our clean power source, and see what happens. Come along and have fun exploring the possibilities of a clean energy future!
