News bit on the local MN channel this am... Graduating from the U of M with a BS degree in physics - at the age of 13..

From the link:

Elliott Tanner is passionate for theoretical and experimental physics, math, and computer programming. He started his full-time college career at the age of 9 and is currently a senior at the University of Minnesota. He has appeared on the Dean's list at the University of Minnesota and maintains an overall 3.78 GPA. He is also an undergraduate student researcher at the university working on simulation and analysis for the Short-Baseline Neutrino program at Fermilab and has been awarded a UROP stipend for his research project.

In May, 2020 Elliott graduated college at 11 years old with a Associate of Science degree in Mathematics with high honors (4.0GPA). He is currently enrolled at the University of Minnesota - College of Science and Engineering where he is on will graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Minor in Mathematics on May 12, 2022.



Elliott has been accepted into the University of Minnesota's PhD program for physics to further study High Energy Theoretical Physics.



"Physics holds power to describe the physical world. It is stunning to me that physics can describe everything from the way rays of cosmic particles shower in the atmosphere to the way galaxies perform their cosmic dance. Physics is omnipresent in my day-to-day life. My particular interest in particle physics began as a 6-year-old child watching the documentary, Particle Fever. It was intriguing to watch the physicists try to determine the mass of the Higgs and how that would shape the fate of particle physics in the future. My passion for physics stems from how the subject acts as a carrier for mathematics without the subject being bogged down by how formalized it is (i.e. having to consider non-physical states). Physics is more intuition-based and as a result inspires my interest in pursuing a graduate level education in physics."

Hard to say, but If he misses high or low, he'll know why.

Am thinking of another young person of that type - such a mind and quest for knowledge and skills. In that case, the parents carefully emphasized broad as well as deep and the timing of degree acquisition was tempered. Nonetheless, success in a science field came early and strong, but over the long haul a loving and caring spirit and beautiful soul made the far greater impact and contributions.

Nothing wrong with being very intelligent. But that kid will never have a normal life.

Dungeons and Dragons as a hobby and a Billy Joel fan? Nothing good will come from that combination.
Mom might be interesting - marketing Elliot Tan ner tshirts.

Good for the kid though. Hope he comes up with an alternative to electric vehicles.

That’s some résumé. He can calculate the energy of a baseball thrown from the pitcher’s mound in the time it takes to hit him in the head. 😁

Not yet. They want him after he's been trained at a high level.
