This term we are offering a number of workshops for some specialist interest topics:
Minecraft Redstone Creation
Learn how to build some interesting and interactive items with Redstone. Guided by an experienced Minecrafter.
Electronic Circuit Design and Soldering
We will be designing a circuit board that can be used to program tasks with CircuitPython. We’ll design and send away this board to be make. Once it comes back, we’ll solder all of the parts onto the board and program it up.
Minecraft Modding With Java
Building mods with both Forge and server side Spigot, we’ll run through some activities to introduce students to the tools needed to make these types of mods.
Let us know if your interested.
We have been working on an alternative IR soccer ball sensor for RoboCup Junior teams. Our sensor offers a 360 degree view of the field, meaning teams can use one less sensor to get full coverage. This will help to reduce the cost of sensors that a team needs.
We have two options for teams:
- EV3 LEGO Technic – Hole pattern that makes it easy to work with LEGO Technic
- Lightweight – Less mass and I2C headers
Advanced teams can program this sensor using the Arduino framework.
The team at Building Block Studio extends best wishes to everyone in the current health crises that the world is experiencing and we hope that everyone is safe and well! It certainly is a scary time filled with much uncertainty. Unfortunately, we can longer run any of our clubs in our studio for the foreseeable future, however, we are now running our coding club online each Saturday morning, from 9am – 10:30am. We hope to have our robotics club online in the near future as well.
Please get in touch with us if your student is interested in joining in, or if you’d like more information. The first lesson is free! We have a great team that can interactively support your students coding journey.
In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.

This is our minecraft holiday session
We spent the day at the QASMT First LEGO League tournament. Both teams walked away with an invite to the Northern Nationals: on 23/11/2019. EVBees were awarded the Gracious Professionalism Award while BotBuilders achieved Robot Performance and Champions Award. Well done both teams!!
Congratulations to our BotBuilders FLL robotics team for coming 3rd at the Northern Nationals Championship today, Saturday 23rd November 2019. The team won First Place ‘Mechanical Design Award’ and were invited to attend the international tournament held in July 2020 in Sydney. We can’t wait!
The students worked tirelessly throughout the entire season and always did their absolute best! Well done BotBuilders!
A very BIG congratulations goes to our BotBuilders FTC robotics team competing at the Australian National Championship on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th December 2019. This was the BotBuilders first year of FTC. A total of 40 teams across Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia qualified to attend the Nationals Championship and we are so proud that our team came 4th due to the outstanding drivers of the robot during each match and the incredible autonomous code used each game! We are also thrilled that they received the Design Award for their robot. Well done BotBuilders
Our new location is on Sandgate Road – Clayfield.
We now have twice the space in a nice modern facility.
