Genius 12-Year-Old Expands on Einstein


Jacob Barnett, of Indiana, is a fairly normal 12 --old boy - except that he has an IQ of 170 and enjoys activities like teaching himself physics and calculus, and expanding Einstein´s theory of relativity.

Jacob was diagnosed with aspergers syndrome, a mild form of autism, at a young age. His parents, initially concerned, realized that he actually was hiding an incredible gift. Teaching himself advanced subjects, Jacob graduated high school at age 8.

As a university student now, Jacob helps fellow classmates with physics as he prepares to move on to a PhD program. He often has restless nights as numbers run through is mind, but it only helps him to work on some of the hardest math problems known.
