MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — There's a little man on campus at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Years younger than his classmates, 11-year-old Lucas Kramer is nearly done with high school and is deep into his university studies.

The boy's dad, Tim Kramer, says there are rarely quiet moments because of his son's perpetual curiosity. The boy could read words at age 2 and college-level books by age 5.

He says he doesn't have much time for cartoons or video games and spends most weekends doing homework. WCCO-TV says that for fun, Kramer works on the university's solar car competition.
