FIRST Team Paragon 571

Windsor, CT

April 2023 Update

We have just finished a very successful competition season after working several weeks building our robot. This year, our goal was to create a simple yet robust robot. Being a smaller team with many new students, we decided to build within our capabilities and do it well, which is exactly what we did. And we were even more successful than we hoped. Although our official competition season is over, we have plans for many summer activities. We have hopes to do multiple different workshops for both programming and building to allow everyone opportunities to grow their skills for next year.
