Imagine studying aerospace engineering at any age, let alone 13. Caleb Anderson is breaking records and making history with his place at Georgia Tech, having joined the university a few months ago:
Caleb Anderson attended his first day of classes at the Georgia Institute of Technology on Monday, the university confirmed in a statement this week. Anderson started his college career as a sophomore after taking courses at Chattahoochee Technical College for advanced credits.
Anderson, the youngest student on Georgia Tech’s campus, called his first day of classes “pretty interesting” in the university’s statement. He was daunted by the size of the school’s campus, describing it as “massive.”
Last year, Caleb was studying at Chattahoochee Technical College in Marietta, Georgia and his love of space has never diminished:
“When I was like 1, I always wanted to go to space,” Caleb, who’s favorite subject is math, told USA TODAY. “I figured that aerospace engineering would be the best path.”
I hope to feature Caleb more on the site as his career flourishes.
