One of Those Astonishing Stories

An interesting story from the October 8, 2011 Seattle Times about a kid so smart that he is above the top of the supergifted programs:
When he was 9, he galloped through high-school Advanced Placement math and science classes — calculus, statistics, physics, chemistry and biology — scoring a perfect 5 in each subject.

When he was 10, he worked on T-cell receptor research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

When he was 11, he won a silver medal at a competition on synthetic biology for undergraduate college students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Last month, at 13, Gabriel was named one of the top 10 high-school inventors in the country by Popular Science magazine, even though, technically, he's attending a junior-high school.
