Flying Fox Studios is home to the Brisbane chapter of LittleBits. This international program seeks to put the power of electronics in the hands of everyone regardless of technical ability.

Our chapter is called UpGrade, and meets run every 6 to 8 weeks on a Saturday afternoon. You don't need any experience with LittleBits to come along, our teacher Justin is always more than happy to help you get started. 

We will be tinkering, coding, powering, and programming using both LittleBits and other materials. Bringing life to recycled, crafted, and everyday items. What will you UpGrade?

Looking to purchase LittleBits in Brisbane? As well as being home to the Brisbane LittleBits Chapter, we stock a range of LittleBits in our store both at Everton Park and online here.

UpGrade is designed for ages 12 and above, however children 7 to 12 years may attend with an accompanying grown up. Children less than 12 years of age must enrol through our office, so we can allocated a space in the workshop for both a child and adult. We will give a 4 week 'grace' period for children close to the cut off, however other than this we will not enrol students into out of age range classes. This is our standard policy across all classes, programs, and age groups at Flying Fox Studios.

Many in history have looked at animals as a basis for their inventions. Now its your turn to take your choice of animal and UpGrade it into a Mechanical Animal, or "Mechanimal".

Craft your animal and recreate its movements mechanically, use an animal as inspiration to create a new invention, or both?

Electronics meets maker space in this workshop that combines LittleBits and our array of crafty materials. By the time you are finished, we'll have upgraded more than your ideas.

Cost is $24- per student.
Students 12 years and over may book directly via our website.
Students 7-12 years may book a place if they bring a grown-up helper and must book via e-mail or over the phone.
