The following information comes from CBS News.
12-year-old Caleb Anderson is currently studying aerospace engineering at Georgia Tech University. He took classes for aerospace engineering at Chattahoochee Technical College in Marietta, GA. But his parents wanted to find a university fit for a tween genius, that’s when GA Tech recruited him.
The chair of Georgia Tech’s School of Aerospace Engineering, Professor Mark Costello, advised the following:
“He’s a perfect candidate to come into our program and be very successful.”
“I would expect that he would be admitted, for sure.”
I wish Caleb and his family much success.
