"The mission of FIRST Team Paragon is to provide the opportunity for young minds to channel their creative energy in a safe environment that promotes learning toward the disciplines of science, engineering and technology, as well as challenging youth with problems and difficult situations that requires exploration of aptitude, skills, and limitations while learning to work under the constraints of time limits and schedules. Being a program almost completely student operated, team meetings allow exposure to all sides of a program that designs and creates a real world product with the ability to perform specific tasks in the context of team work and gracious professionalism, for we know that few great accomplishments are achieved by individuals alone."
