Each of the symbols below the crossword grid

is a Unicode symbol in the miscellaneous technical block. Taking the names of these symbols gives:

DEL STILE
DELTA UNDERBAR
EPSILON UNDERBAR
QUAD JOT
QUAD LESS THAN
SLASH BAR
SQUISH QUAD
UP SHOE JOT
UPWARDS VANE

These are entered in the grid as so:

practical_nonsense_grid

Finally, taking the letters in the yellow squares gives us the final answer of

SPARTAN
