Recently a UK teen won an award for his research.
From Daily Mail UK:
Jolly good fellow! Child genius, 15, becomes youngest ever to be awarded fellowship by Royal Society of the Arts – following in footsteps of Marx, Dickens and Stephen Hawking
- Child genius from Preston has his named etched alongside other great minds
- He gave an official presentation at the UN on his 55,000-word research thesis
- Received a fellowship from 267-year-old Royal Society of Arts
A 15-year-old child genius has become the youngest person ever to be awarded a fellowship by the Royal Society of the Arts.
Monty Lord, from Preston, Lancashire, has now had his name etched alongside others including Charles Dickens, Stephen Hawking and David Attenborough.
The child genius has broken numerous world records and gave an official presentation at the United Nations about his 55,000-word research thesis on the effects of bedtime technology on adolescents.
He received a fellowship from the 267-year-old Royal Society of Arts, which is an award given to people that have made outstanding achievements in social progress and development.
Monty has spent the last two years devoting his free time to helping people with mental health issues and raising awareness about the issue.
That passion led the schoolboy to set up the UK-registered charity Young Active Minds – at just 14 years old.
In addition to that, the youngster has been studying a semester-long course in psychology from Harvard University – and his own research was even used by NHS Public Health England.
His research showed that statistically the use of technology at bedtime adversely impacts a person’s circadian rhythm, otherwise known as their internal clock.
We can only hope that Monty’s research will make a significant impact on how people of all ages choose to use technology as well as how parents allow their children to use it and be exposed to it (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).
