America's Brightest Teen? Girl who went to College at 12 now set to get PhD at 16

- Tesca Fitzgerald began to play with computers at before the age of two
- She skipped middle and high schools and went straight to college
- Now a graduate, she is about to start her PHD later this year
- Her two sisters appear to be just as clever

Tesca Fitzgerald will be heading off to grad school, but when she finally begins classes at the Georgia Institute of Technology, her classmates will be several years older than her.

In college at age 12, Tesca just graduated from Portland State University and is on the fast track to receive her PhD in cognitive science and human robotic interaction by age 22.

Her mom Ami Fitzgerald says its all down to their homeschooling that has allowed her daughters the freedom to study at their own speed....
