The Smartest Kids in the World

Watch videos of ten child prodigies in action, in the fields of medicine, geography, music, business, and of course school subjects like science and math. Shown is Adi Putra Ghani, who gives lectures on business even though he's only ten years old!

Haha, I JUST bought Charlotte Church's first album for christmas, Max :P I love her voice, even though I don't think she sings anymore...she had an interesting talk show for a bit, though.

ugh. More child prodigy stories?! I hate these things. The children are looked at like a dog that walks on its' hind legs or a cat that can open a door. They are novelties, nothing more. As soon as they hit an age where it's no longer unique they will be ignored. It always happens.

Long live Charlotte Church! (Charlotte WHO?!?!) lol...

My daughter is a very bright child, top of her year group within her school. This was picked up as soon as she went to pre-school although we knew she was smart from a very early age.

She has an amazing memory, able to retain a huge number of facts that interest her. Things 'that interest her' being the important part to me. We could have sat her down in front of a world map at the age of one or so & gotten her to learn it pretty quickly, I'm sure. No, didn't want to do it for the grandstanding factor. She could name many many children's programme character's, animals, foods at that age, but we didn't boast about it to the world.

I hope these gifted children find some normality in their adult lives.

Adi Putra is very gifted and i wish him and all the others phenom to do better when they are adults, because IQ without EQ is also useless.

These kids are pretty amazing! A lot of them seem to be from poorer parts of the world, and the stories of some of them show that they're from poor families. I really hope that they don't get exploited or overworked so that they burn out by age 14.

Midori Goto was a great violinist, but at age 15 she couldn't take any more, and quit professional violin for quite a while...even prodigies need to pace themselves.
