Pacline Conveyors is very proud to sponsor Inverse Paradox, a team from Mississauga, Ontario for the FIRST Robotics Competition.  Inverse Paradox consists of over 50 high school students and mentors who work together to build a 120-pound industrial strength robot!

Established in 2004, the team has won many prestigious awards and is known internationally for its amazing team spirit, excellence in robot design, and community and global outreach.

The FIRST Robotics Competition is a fun, challenging, and inspiring science and technology program for kids grade 9-12. The competition was founded by Dean Cumin and was designed to foster 21st century life skills and spark interest in the following categories:

  • Science
  • Technology
  • Engineering
  • Math

Teams of high schoolers are given 6 weeks to design, build, and program a robot capable of playing a challenging field game with and against other teams and robots. Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology gives students the opportunity to participate in the “ultimate sport for the mind”. The First Robotics Competition involves approximately 3650 teams and over 90,000 participants!
