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!! :)

"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.

"I was looking for a collaborative tool for writing LaTeX scientific documents, journal papers and other texts.
My PhD co-advisor is a professor at Imperial College London and I am based in Barcelona, so exchanging latex files for paper reviews through email was not optimal.
Then, we found Overleaf through the website, and since then, we are using it to write different documents in a simple collaborative way, editing the same source file."

" When you start using LaTeX you have the feeling that you can focus on the content of your work rather than worrying about formatting and other issues that just get in your way. Overleaf brings this feeling back." – Francisco Orlandini
