Caleb Anderson, a 12-year-old boy from the US, is all set to become the youngest student in the world to study aerospace engineering at a university.
Anderson, who will soon be joining the study course at Georgia University, says he can grasp information quickly which makes learning quicker for him.
He started showing signs of his unique learning ability from an early age. When he was just nine months old, he picked up sign language. And by the time he turned two, he was doing fractions.
“I have this distinct memory of going to a first-grade class and learning there, and everyone was way taller than me, because, you know, I was two. I could barely walk,” he said.
He said middle school was tough for him as other students looked down on him for being an ‘anomaly. Now, his parents want him to study at a university that accepts him and not just tolerates him.
The staff at Georgia University are already keen to have young Anderson on board. He recently met the campus President and was given a tour of the labs.
