, Senior Aerospace Engineer (studied at MIT). In high school you could be a “freshman” and 14 years old and taking sophomore to senior level classes. The term sophomore merely means that it is your second year at the high school and it has nothing to do with the level of courses you are taking.

"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."

Caleb's mother, Claire, said she first realized her son was gifted when he began mimicking her speech at just 4 weeks old. At 9 months, he could sign more than 250 words in American Sign Language and had no trouble reading words he'd never seen before.

"I was getting my master's in education so I knew that there was something special about that," she said.

Another reason for an older sophomore may be due to a prolonged illness or having to leave school for a period of time for family reasons. Being a senior at that age means that it ’s nearing time to graduate from high school and going to college or enter the adult world in some working capacity.

While enrolled in a traditional middle school, Claire Anderson, 46, said Caleb would breeze through tests without having to study because he already knew most of the material. The former teacher and current stay-at-home mom worried that he wasn't being challenged enough.

"I didn't like the character that was building in him," she said. "He didn't have any study skills, perseverance, grit. He didn’t ask for help."

Both Claire and her husband, Kobi, acknowledged that at times his intelligence made it difficult for Caleb to make friends. Kobi Anderson, 45, recalled Caleb getting upset that his friends couldn't communicate with him when he was just 3 years old.

His father, who is an IT salesman, now supervises him on campus. But Kobi Anderson made it clear that Caleb has excelled way past the point of his dad being able to help with homework.

"We can't do that," he said with a laugh. "He's already passed me in math."

Although they can't help him in the classroom, Claire Anderson said she's focused on raising a well-rounded child and that starting college early helped relieve some of his anxiety.

"Both of us are not rocket scientists," she said. "We had to learn there are other things that we can teach him about compassion, kindness, looking for good in others."

Caleb agreed, too, that college is the best place for him.

"It's really accepting," he said. "People might think something about it, but they don't show it which is really nice."

The Anderson's have two other children – Aaron, 8, and Hannah, 7, who are in the gifted program at their school. While they describe Caleb as verbally gifted, meaning he quickly picks up other languages, Aaron is good with numbers and Hannah excels at puzzles.

When asked what advice he had for other parents, Kobi Anderson said parents can start by advocating for their children's academic growth in the same way achievements in areas like sports are celebrated.

Teenage Engineering's OB-4 speaker lets you remix the radio

  Teenage Engineering's OB-4 speaker lets you remix the radio A recent leak of a forthcoming Teenage Engineering product had some commenters lamenting that “it was just another Bluetooth speaker.” Today, the OB-4, as it is known, is official. And yes, it is a speaker. And yes, it does have Bluetooth (along with Line in and an FM receiver). But if anyone thought they would stop there, well then you’re probably not that familiar with the Swedish audio company. Described as a “magic radio” the OB-4 has a few tricks up its sleeve. Of course, it can be used solely as a Bluetooth speaker if you wish. Or an FM radio. Or as a dedicated speaker for its synths (the dimensions of the OB-4’s top plate are a nod to the OP-Z).
