Beyond highly capable, Eastside teen truly excels

A true wunderkind: If you haven’t read our story on Gabriel See, please have a look. Gabriel, 13, is so gifted that he 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. So gifted that he won a silver medal at a competition on synthetic biology for undergraduate college students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Here’s a passage from the story by Seattle Times staff reporter Katherine Long:

Ernest Henley, physics professor, dean emeritus at the University of Washington and a member of the National Academy of Sciences, has never met a student quite like him. “Frankly, I have never seen a boy of his age who displays as much intelligence and aptitude for learning,” Henley said. “He is one of a kind.”
