The impact of your support

Paying it forward

Every dollar donated to CRyptonite helps inspire hundreds of kids to pursue STEM careers. Our funding allows our highschool team to compete in competitions with teams around the world. At the Robert R. Shaw Center, parts and tools bought using donations have taught members industry-level skills, preparing them to succeed in college and the workplace. CRyptonite’s outreach projects have evolved in unique ways, allowing for STEM boxes to be gifted to kids to interest them in science. Every dollar counts.
