Fox Blocks C-Zone

C-Zone
A hands on STEM program for kids who love to build. Term 2, 2019
Unit: Advanced Machines


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 kids 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. 

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 2018 must be attending Grades 5, 6 and 7 in 2018. This is our standard policy across all classes, programs, and age groups. Students that are Grade 5 age, but attending Grade 4 in 2018 will be able to enrol into this age group in 2019. This is a firm policy, and out of age enrolments will not be accepted.

  • Class Structure: 9 Week Term

  • Class Length: 60 minutes.

  • Cost: $179 (9 weeks Term 3)
  • Age Range: Grade 5 to Grade 7

T2, 2019 CLASS TIMETABLE

Advanced Machines

Join us this term as we take machines to the next level. With models more intricate than ever before, we will explore the concepts of levers, pulleys, gear ratios, wheels & axles and inclined planes as we build model chain saws, semi-automatic garage doors, elevators, model gear boxes, and more! Taking the concepts we have learned in simple machine units, we will understand how these more complex machines are really just a combination of smaller simple machines!
