Talk about a kid genius!
At 13-years-old Caleb Anderson is officially a sophomore studying engineering at Georgia Tech after he studied for a year at Chattahoochee Techincal College located in Marietta, Georgia.
While he was on track to graduate in two years, Caleb’s parents, Claire and Kobi Anderson wanted their son to attend the perfect university for their young whiz kid. That university became Georgia Tech.
“I’m being challenged,” Caleb tells CBS of his experience at Georgia Tech. “I think I’m average here. The one thing that unites everybody in this school is that the work is terrifying.”
He is definitely more than average.
Per CBS News, at just 9 months old, Caleb learned sign language and was reading by the age of one. When he turned two, he was already doing fractions and by the age of three, he qualified for Mensa, the largest and oldest IQ society in the world.
Now, instead of heading to seventh grade like most 13-year-olds, he is an aerospace engineering major at one of the most elite engineering schools in America.
“I thought I was going to be here when I was 18,19, but I’m here a lot earlier than I thought I would be,” he said during a video shot by the university to showcase his first days at Georgia Tech.
Despite his achievements, Caleb remains humble.
“I’m not really smart,” said a then 12-year-old Caleb in an interview with CBS News last year. “I just grasp information quickly. So, if I learn quicker, then I get ahead faster.”
Given all that he has already achieved, this Georgia Tech sophomore’s ambition is endless. He dreams of someday earning a master’s degree from Georgia Tech, starting his own company, and working for SpaceX.
It looks like Caleb Anderson is well on his way to achieving his goals!
