About Us

Team Picture
Our team’s annual goal is to create a team of excited student that bring academic knowledge to robotics competition. We are part of the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and participate in FIRST Robotics Competitions (FRC).

FRC combines the excitement of competition with rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources are challenged to engineer robot to preform a set of tasks against a field of competitors, raise funds, design a team “brand”, and hone teamwork skills.


For the 2024 FRC CRESCENDO Season, Team Paradise built "The Rhino".
