13-year-old boy bags Bachelor’s degree from US university, set to earn PhD in Physics at 18 years old
Elliott Tanner, a remarkable 13-year-old prodigy, received his bachelor’s degree in physics with a minor in mathematics from the University of Minnesota in Minnesota, the United States.
Just three years after Michael Kearney, who received his bachelor’s degree at age 10, the young scientist prodigy accomplished the accomplishment at a record-breaking age. “I am overjoyed. Elliot stated to Life Science, “It is a truly bizarre experience.
Elliot began attending the University of Minnesota when he was 11 years old after finishing the majority of his college coursework when he was 9 years old. Before he entered school, his parents noticed that their son was talented; from the age of three, he demonstrated exceptional linguistic and math abilities.
When he was 5, Elliott enrolled in his local kindergarten but was quickly taken out of school when it became clear that a traditional education experience would not be a good fit for him. “He was talking about particle accelerators when he was 5 years old when other kids were pretending to be Superman on the playground,” Michelle Tanner, Elliott’s mom said.
After that, Elliot’s parents homeschooled him. His mother claimed that he picked up knowledge and facts faster than they could process. By the time he was nine, they were unable to keep up with his rate of development.
So they enrolled him at his local community college. “As parents, we were terrified. But he excelled, and the school administration and other students took him under their wings,” Tanner said
