Carlson began reading on his own as a toddler -- by age four, he finished "Harry Potter." At nine, he began taking courses at the University of Connecticut. After graduating from Stanford University Online High School at age 11, he enrolled at UConn full-time, where he holds down a 3.9 GPA. His primary interest is studying natural ecosystems, and he is currently suing UConn for age discrimination because they will not let him participate in a course that involves field work in South Africa.
