The impact of your support

Paying it forward

Every dollar donated to CRyptonite directly inspires hundreds of kids to pursue STEM careers. 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. Beyond Katy, CRyptonite’s outreach projects have evolved in unique ways, allowing for STEM-boxes to be gifted to kids without Christmas presents, funding robotics kits to be sent to rural areas in West Australia and India, and competitions to be held for youth robotics teams. Every dollar counts.
