Fox Blocks C-Zone

C-Zone
A hands on STEM program for kids who love to build. Term 2, 2020
Unit: Rolling into Robotics


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.

  • Class Structure: 9 Week Term

  • Class Length: 60 minutes.

  • Cost: $179 (9 weeks Term 4)
  • Age Range: Grade 5 to Grade 7

Rolling into Robotics

This term we head into the computer age!

Thanks to the programmable brick by Lego [NXT], we will be able to build and program a robot to take simple instructions. We will learn how to program commands into the special brick and incorporate these instructions into the robots we build.

This term-long project will engage the mind and stretch the imagination into the future of robotics.



Rollercoaster Physics

This term, we'll learn about the physics behind one of the most favoured thrill rides of all time as we build and test roller coasters and marble runs.

We'll introduce the students to scientific concepts such as: projectile motion, 3-D measurement, forces, acceleration, and energy in a super fun way.

Each week, we'll work together to build models, primarily with K'Nex and FischerTechnik, then we'll experiment, test, and solidify our understanding of STEM principles. All the thrills of riding a rollercoaster without even leaving the floor!
