The last thing you probably wanted to see as an 11 year-old were the theories and formula cooked up by Einstein and company. But little Carson Huey does Calculus to relax. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, what we have here is another boy genius. And just a few days ago he became the youngest ever freshman at Texas Christian University. While other kids his age are filling up fifth grade classrooms, Carson will be wrestling with the full complement of credits for a quantum physics course. “I’m taking calculus, physics, history and religion,” he told a reporter with a big smile on his face.
And Carson insists that there is nowhere else he would rather be despite all his classmates being a few feet taller than him. “It’s fun,” he says, likening his experience after his first few days with what he had in high school, only in a “big campus”. Carson’s professors are also treating him like the rest of the students after seeing his level of application and interest in the classes.
From day one the little intellectual made it clear that he was in a hurry to go places. Claretta, his mother, says Carson had started reading by the time he celebrated his first birthday. By the time he was five he was feeling his way through pre-algebra. And Carson’s incredible talent extends to the arts; according to the campus newspaper, he comfortably plays the piano. Oh, and he has also mastered Mandarin.
There seems to be no doubt that Carson will complete his course in the stipulated four to five years and go on to work his dream job, provided his professors can keep up with him.
