Marietta teen, Caleb Anderson, 13, has just completed his third week of classes at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
His parents claim that his proclivity for overachievement began when he was a baby.
According to Caleb, Georgia Tech can be both inspiring and intimidating. “I’ve been learning my way around campus. It’s a big campus,” Caleb told Channel 2′s Berndt Petersen.
Caleb is an aerospace engineering major who is well aware of the amount of effort required to achieve his goal of earning a master’s degree by the age of 16.
“I get home at 3, and I do homework or study ‘till about 8 or 9. But I usually take little breaks in between, so it’s not that bad,” he said.
Caleb’s other goals include an internship with Elon Musk, a PhD at MIT, a career at Nasa or SpaceX, and a mission to Mars.
“I’ve been recognized in public, which is an interesting experience. It’s really cool. A lot of people think I’m their inspiration, and they’re proud of me,” Caleb said.
Caleb says he is enrolled in a program that allows him to earn his Master’s degree while also pursuing his Bachelor’s degree.
