At the New Hampshire State Tournament on December 2, 2006, the Flying Geeks of Nashua Christian Academy achieved what had previously always seemed impossible -- they accomplished all of the missions of the FLL Nano-Quest challenge on a single autonomous robot outing! Congratulations, Flying Geeks! You have our admiration in regard to this most incredible accomplishment!Flying Geeks' 400-point Round in NH Qualifying Round 3

PS: After watching the above round, some might say, "Hey, that wasn't fully autonomous -- they changed an attachment on the robot." However, that operator intervention was only in order to go out and operate the other team's side of the space elevator -- if the other team does their part, the Flying Geeks do indeed score a full 400 points in a single autonomous outing, including having the robot change its own attachment!
