Iowa FRC Scrimmage:

On February 24th, many members of Team Neutrino attended the FRC Scrimmage at Valley High School hosted by FRC Team 6419 ICE! This event was a great opportunity for the team to test out and drive the robot on a full-sized field, as well as make improvements with the Autonomous code. Additionally, members attended a non-tech meeting and an Impact Award exchange, which allowed the team to discuss these topics and exchange advice with other teams. Team Neutrino was also able to help out Harlan Robotics, a team mentored by our team. Overall, this event was an excellent chance to prepare for the upcoming competitions!
