12-year-old accepted at Georgia Tech


Caleb Anderson has been accepted into Georgia Tech at the age of 12. He intends to study aerospace engineering, reports 11 Alive News. His story is so amazing that it’ inspired people around the world. Now, the 12-year-old from Marietta is taking the next giant leap in his educational journey. His parents told 11Alive that they knew he was special when he was able to sign 250 words at just 9 months old. He was reading the U.S. Constitution at age two.

“I am grateful I videotaped Caleb when he was young because I don’t think people would have believed us that a 2-year-old was reading the United States Constitution,” Claire Anderson said.

A couple of years later, he had qualified to join Mensa, the famed “High IQ Society.”

Among the attention he’s received was that of administrators at his dream school, Georgia Tech. There, the chairman of the aerospace engineering program set up a meet-and-greet with Caleb.

Less than a year later, Georgia Tech, last Thursday, announced that Anderson has since been accepted there where he plans to continue pursuing his degree in aerospace engineering.
