About us

CRyptonite competes in the FIRST Robotics Competition, or FRC. Learn all about our parent organization (FIRST), our competition (FRC), and the history behind our team.


In addition to the robot, CRyptonite is active in the community, carrying out STEM-related outreach activities. We hold annual Science Day Camps for local kids, a middle-school robotics tournament for 25 nearby teams, and share our resources with fellow teams.

Parents are the underlying reason this program is possible in the first place. Without their involvement, this team would not be able to function smoothly. Learn more about the role you can fill as a parent and how to join “Club 624”, our parent sponsorship program. 

We’ve continued to expand our social media, while creating a community newsletter, and developing brand standards to present a unified image.
