Fox Blocks C-Zone

C-Zone
A hands on STEM program for kids who love to build. Term 3, 2019
Unit: Green City


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.

T3, 2019 CLASS TIMETABLE

Green City

Welcome to the dawning of a new age, where robotics and green energy will come together to form a green city.

We will familiarise ourselves with the Lego NXT Robotics set, exploring and enhancing our programming and sensor knowledge before confronting the Green City Challenge.

The Green City Challenge will comprise of a number of environmentally focused scenarios, each scenario has real-world implications which we will tackle in small groups.

On completion of each scenario, we will collect a special energy brick. The more scenarios we complete, the more energy bricks we will have available to power our Green City!
