As a member of Mensa International®, Vivek Abraham, 12, is considered a genius.
Vivek and his family moved to North Texas in 2017 and settled in Frisco earlier this year, prior to his appearance on the NBC series “Genius Junior.”
At age 7, Vivek took an IQ test and “maxed out” with a score of 160 points (the average person scores between 85 and 115 points). As a 9-year-old, he earned a perfect score of 36 on the ACT test — a feat achieved by only 1,000 of the more than two million high school students who take the exam annually. As a result, he received a scholarship to study astrophysics and chemistry online at Northwestern University.
Since 2016, Vivek has collaborated with adult students, faculty members and outside experts who comprise The Mind Project’s Knight Rover Robotics Initiative team at Illinois State University. The team designs and programs small robots.
An aspiring astrophysicist, Vivek hopes to attend Stanford University and make scientific contributions similar to those of his hero, the late physicist and author Stephen Hawking.
We can’t wait to see what’s next for this young Frisco resident!
