About Paradise Teams
Serving Northern Greater Grand Rapids
We are a 501C3 Organization
Paradise Teams grew out of a home-schooled FIRST LEGO League team, LEGO In Paradise. In 2006 for the Nano Quest season after two seasons as the Homebotic Helpers, the team decided on the “Paradise” theme, with bright red Hawaiian type shirt, big straw hats, and sharks on their heads and the festive name “LEGOs in Paradise”. During the 5 years that team was together, we started a 2nd team, The Sharks which has been together since 2009, the Smart Move Season.
We learned a lot about the FIRST LEGO League core values and have attempted to pass them along to all of our students. In doing so, we have had some very high quality teams, receiving great comments and complements from many people they have met.
Over this time, we have had many inquires and requests to join our teams, or find a team for someone, so we have begun to actively seek out new team members and coaches for new teams.
