On February 19th, DNA participated in the annual Itasca Community College (ICC) Scrimmage. This event gives local robotics teams the chance to test their robots on a realistic playing field before Bag and Tag. Team DNA learned various things to improve this year’s robot, such as resolving the robots arm jam for the robots shooter. The team also tested out the new scouting program to use for competitions, making it faster and easier to collect data from other teams. Near the end of the scrimmage a variety of awards were given out to teams with different accomplishments assigned to each award. DNA received the Drive Train Award for their unique “octo-bot” design, for being able to move swiftly and smoothly in any direction while functioning normally.
