A group of CRyptonite students showed off our 2016 robot, Armada, and one of our VEX robots at the Houston Sectionâs annual Marine Technology Society (MTS) barbeque and technology exhibition. MTS is a national organization dedicated to disseminating marine science and technical knowledge and promoting and supporting education for marine scientists, engineers, and technicians.
We wound up the 2016 competition season in style by winning The Remix offseason tournament! Congratulations to our students and mentors, along with our Alliance Captain, Team 3847 (Spectrum) and Team 4206 (Robo Vikes). The finals match-up was against a tough number one seed Alliance captained by Team 1477 (Texas Torque) and rounded out by Team 231 (High Voltage) and Team 3335 (Cy-Borgs).
CRyptonite recently collaborated with the Houston chapter of Sewa International on October 8 to organize a science day event at the Robert Shaw STEAM Center (RSC) to foster interest in science and technology among young kids. The event was devoted to children involved in ASPIRE - a Sewa program that provides education and mentoring services after school for young refugees and immigrants.
Itâs that time of year again for our annual potluck dinner social, where students and their parents come in to discover and learn about our high school robotics program. While becoming acquainted with other team members, new students were given tours of the Robert Shaw Center and introduced to various FRC and VEX competition robots. Excited students were able to drive our automatons around. The interactions between the robots and the field pieces went exceptionally well as there was always a line to take a turn at driving.
With school starting up, Team 624 took part in the Cinco Ranch High School, Roundup and Fish Camp, where freshman and returning students tour the school, pick up schedules, and learn about clubs and other various student activities. At team 624âs booth, team members showed off robots from our last two seasons, Brimstone and Gravity, and last seasonâs Reveal Video.
