Genius Brothers Dominate College Physics in Texas — One Even Speaks Perfect Mandarin!

Carson and Cannan Huey-You, 14 and 11, respectively, are not your ordinary kids. The oldest of the two already has a degree in physics with minor in Mandarin Chinese and math while the youngest plans to study Astrophysics and engineering.

Carson, at the very young age of 14, became the youngest student to ever graduate in Texas Christian University. His younger brother, Cannan, is not too far behind as he will also attend the same institution to study to become an astronaut.

Carson Huey-You, 14, will become the youngest graduate in TCU’s history. Congrats to an exceptional young man! https://t.co/zDuMaMZkjC
