CRyptonite was recognized at the June 23rd Katy ISD Board Meeting for another successful competition season as well as many other community service projects performed throughout the past year. Board members got a chance to see this year’s robot, Sidewinder, and had a chance to hear back from Team 624 students. Outgoing student President Bill Waters spoke about the impact robotics has on students by enhancing learning in the STEM fields with hands-on engineering activities, and incoming student President Dylan Bray spoke about the future of robotics and STEM education in KISD with the new STEM Center. Robotics Booster Club member and team mentor, Mike Outlaw, spoke to the board about the team’s sustainability and ongoing support from many corporate sponsors in the greater Houston area. This past spring marked CRyptonite’s 14th year of robotics competition, which could not have been possible without the dedication of students, the hard work of mentors, and the support of parents and Katy ISD.
