Aerospace engineering is a very advanced subject. And when we talk about the people who study in the field we can’t help but think about a fully grown person and an extremely intelligent person who can understand its complexities. But when you hear a 12-year-old boy is all set to enroll for the subject at a reputed university, it just blows your mind, doesn’t it?
A 12-year-old boy, Caleb Anderson from the United States who is all set to become the youngest student in the world to study aerospace engineering at a university. Anderson will soon be joining the study course at Georgia University. He says he can grasp information quickly which makes learning quicker and easier for him.
The Boy Prodigy Will Enroll For Aerospace Engineering Once He Has Completed His College
Anderson started showing signs of his unique learning ability from a very early age. He picked up sign language when he was just nine months old. And he was doing fractions by the time he turned two. He said that he has a distinct memory of going to a first-grade class and learning there. He remembers that everyone in the class was way taller than him because he was just two years old and could barely walk.
But all was not smooth sailing for the 12-year-old boy prodigy. He recalls that middle school was tough for him. The other students looked down on him for being someone who is so different, for being an anomaly. And now, his parents want a university where their boy genius is accepted with open arms and not just tolerated. When he will be joining the university, the child will be attending classes with students twice his age. His parents want him to have a holistic experience at the university. They also want their boy to learn important life lessons outside of the classroom. Anderson also wishes to attain an internship with Tesla founder Elon Musk.
According to Professor Mark Costello, chairperson of Georgia Tech’s School of Aerospace Engineering, Anderson is a perfect candidate to come into their program. He is expecting him to be very successful. He expects that Anderson is given admission to the university for sure.
