Fox Blocks C-Zone

A hands on STEM program for kids who love to build. Term 1, 2021
Unit: Harnessing Hydraulics

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 2020 must be attending Grades 5, 6 and 7 in 2020.This is our standard policy across all classes, programs, and age groups.

Harnessing Hydraulics

Once again, we will be taking Lego to the next level in this time of extraordinary exploration. Using 31 specialty built Lego elements to recreate real-life pneumatic and hydraulic functions, we will build and test our models and learn about pressure, PSI, control, energy, and much more...

Bookings open from 7:30am on Monday, November 23rd, 2020.

Term 1, 2021 classes resume from Monday, February 1st, 2021.

Term 4, 2020 - Future Tech

Come along this term to design, and build, your ideal future home from the ground up with Lego! Will you have a video intercom in every room? A remote controlled swimming pool? A Personal teleporter? Perhaps robots to clean up our mess? Or maybe even a machine that produces the food we desire at the perfect temperature?

Become the design Engineer of the future and include everything your imagination can create. As well as learning, and using, some advanced building techniques, we will create a set of architectural blueprints based on our model.

We will investigate the future in household technology, changes in architecture through history, and ultimately put our Lego houses on the Minifig Real Estate market. The future isn't written yet, but with Fox blocks, and Lego, we can begin constructing the future now!

Term 4, 2020 classes finish on Saturday, December 12th, 2020.
