our people

Our team is composed of students, parents, and mentors, who come together to complete the yearly FIRST robotics challenge and collaborate to enhance our community. Learn about the people who make this a reality, and the legacy of past members.

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.

CRyptonite is a robotics team from Cinco Ranch High School in Katy, Texas
Team Motto: "Engineering a Path to our Future"


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. 


View our video and photo gallery, read up on our latest blog posts, and check out our marketing strategy.

Without sponsors providing material and financial support, our team wouldn’t be able to continue. Our relationship with sponsors goes beyond the checkbook, with a cornerstone of our program to build lasting and meaningful connections with those who support us.  Learn more about the benefits and process of sponsoring our team.
