A few of the typically more active teams took Day 17 off, which gave up-and-comer teams a chance to pop up on the daily leaderboard and gain ground in the overall standings. For example, EyeWirers is now lurking hungrily just off the overall leaderboard in 11th place.

EyesOnALZ and Alzheimer's Research UK both made strong showings for the day, and Cornell Univ, and Stall Destroyers seized the opportunity to gain ground on the overall leaders.

Meanwhile, as mentioned, Middle School STEM flip-flopped with CitSciGamers again, and the race for the first place continues to be neck-and-neck!

With almost 20%, we now have enough data to get an initial sense about the research results. To avoid "experimental bias," though, we can't share those results with anyone - not even the researchers!
