Greetings everyone,

This week our build and electrical sub-teams have been working hard to put the final touches on this year’s robot. Our spirit sub-team has been creating the buttons for all of the upcoming  DNA events.

The team hosted its annual robot reveal on Thursday, February 16th. We would like to thank everyone who attended this event. Without the support from sponsors and community members none of this could have been possible. DNA has a tradition of naming the robot after a Greek letter and a mentor. This year we have named our robot after Jerry Walz, and the Greek letter Gamma. The official name of our robot is Gamma Grandpa. Stop Build Day is only three days away! On Tuesday evening we will place our robot in a bag and seal the bag; henceforth, we will not be able to touch it until competition. We are getting ready for the Lake Superior Regional (LSR) which is on March 3rd and 4th at the DECC. DNA is also preparing for their second regional, which is in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on March 22nd to the 25th.

This concludes our weekly update series! Stay tuned for press releases from major events. Thanks again for all of your support!
