Modern history is highlighted with many extraordinary achievements: Sir Edmund Hillary's summit of Mount Everest, Charles Lindbergh's crossing of the Atlantic, John Glenn's orbital space flight, and Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon. The wonder of these events has inspired the world to follow and participate in their triumphs. Paragon's CASPAR Initiative will launch another exciting adventure.

The Commercial Space Research (CASPAR) Initiative extends these remarkable achievements in exploration and intensifies the marvel of space by creating a innovative program, 'Destination: Space!', which will encourage children of all ages to advance in science, math, and technology education. By directly involving children, teachers, schools, and libraries, Paragon has created a program that will stimulate the students' imaginations and incorporate key scientific, mathematical, and technological learning experiences.

The primary objective is to enhance youth education in science and math by hosting several educational contests designed to capture their interest and enrich the learning curriculum. A secondary intent is to become the first civilians to privately design, build, and launch a rocket into space!
