After a last-minute intervention from President Donald Trump, a team of six teenage girls from Afghanistan were finally allowed to travel to Washington, D.C. to compete in an international robotics competition. They arrived from their hometown of Herat, Afghanistan, early Saturday, and by Monday, their microwaved-sized ball-sorting robot had competed in its first round. According to the Associated Press, the girls were clearly excited to be representing their nation. Teams had up to four months to build their robots. But the girls mentor, Ali Reza Mehraban, said the Afghan team built theirs in two weeks before it had to be shipped to reach the competition in time. He said the girls had just one day to test the robot in Afghanistan before it needed to be mailed.
