About Us

Who We Are 

Founded in 2006 by a small group of high school students, Team Paradox was the first robotics team created in our school district. Over the course of the past 12 years, the number of students on the team has more than tripled, and the number of students, teachers, and community members that have been affected by our team’s outreach efforts and educational initiatives has grown exponentially. Each year, our team’s activities directly affect 150+ students, mentors, and educators.  Our student engineers, artists, machinists, programmers, and writers work together to create an environment where creativity and passion thrive. As a FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) team, we compete with our robot alongside thousands of other high school teams at regional, district, and international competitions.

Our Mission

Team Paradox aims to provide an outlet for students of all ages to discover and explore their passions for science, technology, engineering, art, and math (“STEAM”), by maintaining a student-run, community-supported FIRST Robotics team at San Dieguito High School Academy (SDA). Our goals include, but are not limited to: providing comprehensive STEM education opportunities to students and community members, lending resources and aid to other STEM efforts in our area, and fostering the growth of interest in the sciences in the community through Outreach and Marketing initiatives.
