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.

"In Word it’s really easy to leave comments, make track changes, etc, but it doesn’t scale – if working with 10 people you end up with a massive chain of emails.
