    The Nano Ninjas team with their awards!

    Earlier this month we ran a short feature about the Nano Ninjas – an all-girls group of 7th and 8th graders who took part in the FIRST Tech Challenge and used Overleaf to create their engineering notebook to record their team and robot's journey throughout the season.

    We're delighted to follow up on that post with news that the Nano Ninjas won first place in the Connect Award category at last week's Super Qualifier! They also placed second in the Inspire category, and were nominated for the Control, Motivate & Think Award! Go team!! :)

    "Thanks for all your support. They won first place in the Connect Award and second place in the Inspire Award (finishing 2nd from 21 teams) in the competition and advanced to State Level. As a rookie team, getting second place in the Inspire category is a major achievement where they compete with teams that have 4-5 years experience." – Nixon Xavier, Nano Ninja Team Coach
