There's an 11 Year Old in this College Chemistry Class

By Jenna Ciccotelli - Aug 25 2016

If you're headed to the University of Toledo this fall, you may have an interesting classmate. 11 year old Daniel Liu is taking classes at the school, just a year after he went from fifth grade to high school. 

An image of Liu was tweeted by classmate Cigdem Kahyaoglu and has been retweeted over 100 thousand times and favorited over 200 thousand times in just two days. Other students at the university have taken the opportunity to meet Liu and post tweets of their own. 

Liu, who loves math and science, is also the youngest to win the Chemical Educational Foundation's "You Be the Chemist" challenge, beating out over 30 thousand students to win a 10 thousand dollar prize.
