Alamo Regional
News Image

In an exciting kickoff to the 2016 qualifying tournament season, we advanced to the finals of the Alamo Regional, winning a heartstopping third and deciding match 116-106 in an extremely close best-of-three semifinal. While many teams at the tournament hailed from Texas, this was an international event, with three teams from China, along with one each from Canada, the Dominican Republic, and Turkey. After an intense day and a half of qualifying matches, we ranked fourth in the 66-team field and were chosen by the second ranked team, Team 3005 RoboChargers from Dallas to compete along with Team 3579 Rattlers from San Marcos as the second seed alliance during the tournament's elimination round of eight alliances. This regional was a learning experience for us, even though we did not win finals.

On December 12, 2015, 76 kids in grades 4-7 attended a student-led science day camp. The kids enjoyed hands-on activities such as dissecting owl pellets, exploding gummy bears, and even designing and building their own hydro-powered projects. The kids were especially thrilled when Thor came out for a few games of catch! Our annual camp is a major fundraiser for CRyptonite as well as an amazing opportunity to spread excitement about STEM!

VEX Teams

This year our team is excited to have created 2 VEX teams. VEX is a robotics organization separate from FIRST, and, like FRC, builds robots to compete in a game, except on a much smaller scale that involves middle and high schools across the country. This has been an exciting opportunity for our freshmen and sophomores to learn about the build process, programming, and the excitement of competition. They work in small teams of 6 or 7, giving them a chance to work on their team work skills. They are preparing for their second competition; wish them luck!
