13-Year-Old Caleb Anderson Attending Georgia Tech

By Briasia Russ

Caleb Anderson is the youngest student at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and he plans to study aerospace engineering.  

On Monday, the engineering scholar attended integral calculus, his first course at Georgia Tech. He described his first day as “pretty interesting,” according to USA Today“This is the kind of school I have been wanting to go to for a very long time, and I am finally here,” Anderson, who hails from Marietta, Georgia, said.   

Despite his young age, his parents, Kobi and Claire Anderson, are confident in their son’s success. “He’s willing to be stretched. He knows how to get back from a punch … and continues to strive,” Kobi Anderson said.  

Although this new beginning is exciting, paying for his education is a challenge. Due to his adolescence, Anderson was ineligible to receive any Georgia merit-based educational scholarships, according to USA Today.  

However, radio legend Steve Harvey and his wife offered to help pay for his tuition with the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation.  

Anderson plans to work at SpaceX, begin his own company and become a role model for teens who look like him. “I want to help others that may just need nurturing and resources,” Anderson said.
