While most of us spent our youth watching TV, playing video games, and exploring the Web, a small group of wonder children were being groomed to become society’s elite minds in the engineering, medical, and technology fields. Take a look at Mark Zuckerberg who, before creating Facebook, established an IM service for his dad’s dentist office around age 12. Then there’s the late Aaron Swartz, the co-founder of Reddit and Internet activist who co-wrote the first RSS specification at just 14 years old. 

And now there's a new generation of juvenile geniuses . We're talking about adolescents and teenagers that are obtaining programming certifications, creating mobile apps, and mastering nuclear physics before reaching puberty. From medical science wonders to tablet creators, these are the youngest tech prodigies itching to take the industry by storm.
